Television actor Karan Kundra
who has made his Bollywood debut today with Vikram Bhatt
's Horror Story is all smiles as he receives praises and accolades for the film and most importantly for his work. Karan's performance has been appreciated by all and what is more the film is trending on the social networking site Twitter adding to the popularity.
"It feels great! I had not expected such a huge response but it is unbelievable" says a visibly charged Karan excited with the reactions he has been getting for the film. However, for an actor who has made his debut in a scary film, Karan himself admits that he himself is feeling scared, "The reactions are good and positive but I guess the feeling of success still has to sink in... I am scared at the moment! Ek, Do, din jaane do, I will feel better!"
However, none of the scary feeling crossed his mind during the shoot says Karan, "As actors we all know that it is all acting so it didn't feel scary at all. In fact when I saw the film for the first time then too I didn't feel it was scary but I was confused after seeing the end result after all the acting, shooting and editing!"
Karan who gained popularity with Television shows like Kitani Mohabbat Hai
, Bayttaab Dil ki Tamanna Hain says, "The industry reviews are good and more so because it was a small budget film which will make good money as compared to all the big budget movies we are clashing with. We even got better reviews than the other biggies released today." He is obviously referring to the big movies like Grand Masti and John Day which released today.
Karan wants to thank his fans for keeping the film trending on Twitter, "It is so sweet of them to keep a track of my film, talking about it and keeping it trending too. The film released today and many of my fans went for the first show in the morning and their response has been phenomenal. I really want to thank them for it."
However, apart from the fans and the industry reaction Karan cannot forget his mother's reaction after she saw the movie for the first time, "My mom is a typical caring mom and totally filmy too. After she saw the film she was holding me and asking me, But, why did you have to go inside that hotel?'" recalls Karan.
Even as he celebrates the success of his debut film, Karan is geared up for his second film, "My second film is a psycho thriller and a totally different genre as compared to Horror Story. It is very stylized with a very unique screenplay and we are shooting for the same. The film will release in February 2014."
Proud of you Karan... Congratulations... way to go!
