Actor Karanvir Bohra plays an over-possessive and abusive husband in "Dil se di dua.Saubhagyavati Bhava" and admits that doing an anti-hero role was a risk.

Talking about the apprehension he had before accepting the part in the show, he told IANS: "It wasn't easy. Nobody wants to play an anti-hero. In our society, it's all about being a good boy who people find cute and all.

"After 'Kasauti Zindagii Kay', I wanted to do something better and more challenging. There was no point doing any ordinary show. I knew the role of Viraaj was a bigger challenge. But at the same time, I was also scared of people hating me because of the negative role."

Karanvir, grandson of actor-producer Ram Kumar Bohra, came into the limelight as Prem in Ekta Kapoor's show "Kasautii Zindagii Kay". He was also seen in Aziz Mirza's "Kismat Konnection".

In "Saubhagyavati Bhava", which comes on Life OK, he often gets violent towards his wife Jhanvi, played by Sriti Jha.

Before starting to shoot for the show, he read a lot about this 'condition'.

"It's a condition about which nothing can be done. This opened a lot of avenues how he should be. I started putting my own style, clothing sense and all. I made him stand out even though he is an anti-hero, so people loved him," he said.

Even with the entry of Harshad Chopra (Raghav) in the show, Karanvir is not at all insecure about the significance of his role. "It's a love triangle. Everyone has their own role. We three are the pivotal characters so nothing will get affected," he said.

Talking about the violence depicted on the show, he said: "We can't show all the violence and everything on screen. We just suggest it happens and generally don't show the gory details. But once the violence increases, we will have to show it in some way."

As far as films go, he will be seen as the male lead in Hemant Madhukar's upcoming film "Mumbai 125 Kms" opposite Pakistani actress Veena Malik. It is expected to release in August.

"Right now I am finishing shooting for 'Mumbai 125 kms'. Vedita Pratap Singh is also in the film. Madhukar is from south and he has made a couple of Telugu films," he added.

Actors should branch out into other things as well, suggests Karanvir and adds that he sees himself as a commodity and tries to sell himself. After working in films and television serials, he now wants to make movies.

"An actor needs to diversify his capabilities and sell himself as a business. I am a commodity and I sell myself to the audience. It's important for actors to branch out in other businesses. There will be filmmaking in the future for me," he said.
