Karan Singh, who was seen in Imagine TV's Jamunia and is currently seen in Star Plus' Love U Zindagi, will be seen in 'Maryada...Lekin Kab Tak? in a very interesting and challenging role.

As the secret of Gaurav (Dakssh Ajit Singh) being a gay is revealed in the family, the question that lingers in the viewers' mind is about Gaurav's partner

A little birdie from the sets informs, "Karan Singh has been finalized to essay Karan who is Gaurav's boy friend and will enter the frame to make the picture more clear about their relationship."

"He will start shooting in a day or two. However the promo for his entry has been shot, and will be on air any moment."

We contacted Karan Singh and he confirmed, "Yes, I have been lucky to essay such a character which I never tried or even tested before on small screen. I had sleepless nights thinking on the character because essaying a gay character is not that easy a job and an actor has to maintain the thin line of the character so that it doesn't get vulgar."

What is your character all about? "The character of Karan will be as normal as any other guy and won't be like any other gay characters which are shown on screen with cozy acts. Hope the character comes out well."

All we can say is it's a challenging role Karan Singh!

I am commenting way late on this, but I just wanted to throw in another 'go Team Maryada!!' on this decision. This is a totally different track from what other shows usually drag out in these situations, and the fact that they've gone and done something this path breaking by today's Indian TV standards is very much laudable. I'm glad that they are treating this with respect and sensitivity so far, and really hope they don't get cold feet and end up doing something to bungle it up. Gay people are HUMANS, with emotions, personalities and the right to exist as much as anyone else. They are not one-off jokes you drag into your show for a cheap laugh. I hope this serious portrayal in Maryada will do something to discourage others from repeating those horrible stereotypes over and over.

Really Maryada team deserve applause for portraying such important issues in the show! About time people come to term with issues like these and learn to accept the differences that exist instead of shying away from the topic.
All the best to the team and the actors! Am so proud i am a fan of this show, truly a realistic one at present on Star Plus.

Keep an open mindFor all those who think this track will mean lost viewership...keep an open mind. This is Star Plus we are talking about. I am sure they did not take this decision lightly without doing the right market research about what will work for their viewer base.

Years ago, a kiss on screen was controversial. Today we have viewers all over this forum clamoring for consummation between their favorite shows is that any more "watchable" and family oriented? Gay men getting married to meet society's expectations is a reality of the world we live in. If the show makes even one parent or viewer understand that those making such life choices are just as human as you or will be worth it! It is saddening to see homophobic comments! Grow up folks...the hypocrisy you are displaying only reflects on you.

Karan Singh, Gay??OMG. I absolutely love Karan Singh. In Love U Zindagi he won my heart, but unfortunately Rahul had to but in. Karan is so romantic and stylish. I'm glad he is back on screen, but him being GAY?? Hmmm, I'm not sure about that
