TV actor Karan Kundra is reuniting with former lady love Kritika Kamra for Channel V's new show "The Serial". But if you're expecting to see some discomfort between them, you're highly mistaken, says Karan.
"Kritika might be seen on the show. She will come on board. But there is no discomfort between us. We are good friends, and there is no problem in being together on a show," Karan told IANS.
Sparks flew between the two actors when they played onscreen lovers in "Kitani Mohabbat Hai" and then in the second season of the show. But they parted ways due to reasons unknown. However, if one is to go by what Karan says, there is no bitterness between the duo.
"All is fine with us. In fact, during the recent Mumbai bandh, we went out for lunch and I even took her to show the first edit of the show 'The Serial'. She liked it, and was clearer about the idea of the show once she watched it. So let's see, she should soon be on board even though she has a daily soap ('Kuch Toh Log Kahenge') going on," he said.
The format of "The Serial", which will go on air Monday, is unique - it is a non-fiction property, wherein popular TV actors will play themselves. Seen through the eyes of a 17-year-old named Rohan, it shows Karan, Pooja Gor and Sara Khan among a host of others, unfolding stories of the telly world.
Karan, who originally hails from Jalandhar, plays himself - a true-blue Punjabi boy. But he says this is a bigger challenge than essaying another character on screen.
"When you get to play a character, you can visualise how it would be. If it's a loverboy, how he will be, if it's a villain, how he needs to be... but what do you do when you have to play yourself! So it is a big challenge," said the actor, who is also getting active in the field of Punjabi films.
"I am producing one Punjabi film, and acting in two films. My family is proud and I am also quite proud of myself that I am able to do something to do with my roots," he added.
