He is the posterboy nouveau of the small screen. Often recalled for his roles that typify cuteness quotient and make young girls drool over his chocolate-boy looks, Karan Wahi feels, he's really blessed to have got such recognition. Post 'Remix', the actor has treaded carefully to carve a niche for himself in tellyland. Currently seen shaking a leg in the dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' as a wild-card entrant, Karan also boasts of a portfolio full of variety as he involves himself with 'Teri Meri Love Stories', doing TVCs and some script reading. Excerpts from the interview:Was participating in 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' always on your mind?
Yes, 'Jhalak' has always been a dream show and I have been offered this show previously as well but, due to some or the other reason nothing materialized. And now that I am finally a part of the biggest celebrity dance reality show, I really wish to reach the finals. It's difficult for me as I am a complete non dancer.We see you blushing at the mention of Isha Sharvani in the show. Have you always admired her?
I did see her performances even before entering 'Jhalak' and I feel that she is really cute and a rockstar when it comes to dancing. I smile when everyone comments on us as there is nothing like that, but I always take things lightly; so ignore it with a smile.You're never part of any serious drama on television. Why?
I have taken every role of mine seriously even if the character wasn't a serious one or from a serious drama. Even though I never wanted to be an actor and always wanted to be a cricketer, now that I am into this industry I realize I really enjoy being one. I respect this industry and feel blessed completely.You recently finished shooting for a telefilm of 'Teri Meri Love Stories' (TMLS). How was the experience of working for it?
It was a great experience doing a telefilm called 'Dhadkan' as a lead on TMLS. Such projects are like a Zephyr for GECs.Will we see you making a comeback on Kuchh Toh Log Kahenge?
Right now nothing has materialized.Work-wise, what's next in pipeline?
, talks are going on but nothing has materialised. Also, some TVC shoots keep me on the toes. Currently, my entire focus is on just Jhalak.You're always full of life, known to be a fun-loving guy who keeps playing pranks. What makes you so lively as a person?
I think the kid inside me inspires me to be the way I am. Even though I don't open up very easily, I make friends in a spur of the moment.Since Remix, you have always portrayed happy-go-lucky characters. What makes you choose these perky onscreen roles?
As I said, I feel blessed and God, till now, has been very kind to me. I wish this carries on forever.
