He was once sitting in CCD when a casting guy from Balaji Telefilms
spotted and asked him to come for an audition for their upcoming show
'Betaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai'. At that time he was doing 'Jyoti'.
Reviving those old days Karan shared, "When that guy asked me to come
for the audition, I thought he might be joking as it was for the lead
role. He literally begged and requested to come for an audition. I went
there and luckily they shortlisted me for the role."
As they say, sometimes the pleasures are short-lived, Karan's dream trashed when he came to know that he was not part of 'Betaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai'. The reason was Karan looked quite younger than the character. "I was a little disappointed and disheartened but soon I received the call from Balaji Telefilms again. Much to my surprise they offered me another show 'Pyaar Ka Bandhan'. Ekta Ma'am thought I am more suitable to play Aziz in PKB. That was my first association with Balaji and the much awaited - first big break. Soon after the show ended I did 'Bandini' with Balaji Telefilms and now I am doing Pavitra Rishta with them and I hope the journey will go on forever", quips Karan.
