After a hiatus, Karanvir Bohra has returned with a bang onscreen with yet another powerful role in Dil Se Di Dua Saubhagyavati Bhava? as Viraj, on the newly launched channel, Life OK. The actor is showcasing his brilliance in acting as Janvi's obsessed husband. 

In a candid chat with TellyBuzz, Karanvir Bohra speaks about his comeback to the small screen and also about his complex role in the show.

How do you feel being back in the industry?
Actually, I do not feel much of a difference because I had not left acting. I was into theatre and plays. I was actually waiting for a right show and I guess this was it.

Can you describe your role in the show?
Viraj is a complex character. He is over possessive about his wife and has grown up in an environment wherein he was taught what was right and what was wrong. He had a deprived childhood which has lead him to be a paranoid human being. Certain things will be revealed as the show progresses. You cannot afford to miss even one episode.

What was the reason for taking up a new show and that too on a new channel?
Actually I really had no plans about coming back. But recently, I was at Salman's (Salman Khan) place as I know Saleem uncle well. He asked me if I was doing anything on television now. When he came to know that I was not, he asked me not to wait too long as television is in great demand these days. Two days after that I got a call from UTV and once I read the script, there was no backing off. I know Life OK is a new channel, but it is under Star Network. So there is no doubt about that.

We had heard that you were offered more than five shows on the same channel, so what was the reason for you to choose this one?
The show is really powerful and I wanted to come back with a character that was challenging. And Viraj is a complicated character, not at all easy to portray.

The show is on the lines of the famous movie Agnisakshi. Do you think people would compare the show with that?
I know the show is on the lines of the movie, but the character that Nana Patekar Ji had portrayed did not have a clinical problem. But herein Viraj has a problem in himself.

How is it working with UTV?
It is good as I had worked earlier with UTV while I was doing Shararat.

Apart from Shararat, you have mostly done grey shades. Do you think that suits you?
Frankly I believe that people like grey shaded men. If they do not have a grey shade, how will they transform them into positive men (laughs) Here, in this show as well, Janvi will try to cure Viraj.  

How is working with Sriti Jha and balancing your roles off screen and on screen?
Sriti is really a sweet person and a wonderful actor. We complement each other well. Initially, it was very difficult for us to switch on and off from the scenes and the character. But today we are really cool about the roles.  

The show is 20 mins and all days. Don't you think it's going to be hectic?
See, when I was doing Kasauti,I was working 30 days a month. But now, the CINTAA rules are really a good development for the actors as they are given their personal time as well.

Your wife Teejay is also doing a new show on Get Punjabi with Ekta Kapoor. How does it feel that your wife is going to get associated with a production house with whom you started your daily soap career?
Yes, she is doing a new show with Ekta and I am really happy for her. We both are going to be busy, but we compensate by going to each other's sets.  

Finally a message to your India-Forums fans.
I am glad to be back and people are watching me on screen again. This is a powerful show to watch out for.
