Karan Mehra’s Onscreen Mantra: Be A Sponge
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Actor Karan Mehra, who has marked his comeback to television with the show ‘Mehndi Wala Ghar’, shared his mantra of perceiving a character onscreen, saying he believes in being a “sponge”– absorbing and delivering.
Karan was last seen in the 2020 show ‘Shubharambh’. He also featured in shows like ‘Mawaan Thandiyan Chawan’, ‘Khatmal E Ishq’, and ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya‘.
The 41-year-old actor has been a part of the entertainment industry for more than a decade and has played a variety of characters on screen.
Karan said, “I have some way of perceiving a character and then I let the director do his job by guiding me what to do, and what he wants. Every director has a vision, and if we go according to that the work becomes easy. Be a sponge is what I believe– absorb and deliver. It makes your life easy and the other ones also.”
Karan is overjoyed to play Manoj Agrawal, a pivotal role in this upcoming show.
Talking about the same, the ‘Love story 2050’ actor said: “I’m playing Manoj, you will see similarities and you can relate to me playing what I was playing for the longest time ‘Naitik’ in the show ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’.”
“Of course, it’s a positive character. He plays a very pivotal role in creating all the mess in the ‘Mehndi Wala Ghar’. He is everyone’s favorite in the house. But something happens, the house breaks, my character leaves home, and then comes back after 24 years,” he shared.
The actor talked about the rise of social media, saying, “when I left ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ social media wasn’t in too much power at that time. This has been happening more in the last four to five years. It will be fun to watch now how all this social media game happens exactly, to be in that race of uploading posts, how people are responding.”
‘Mehndi Wala Ghar’ revolves around Ujjain’s Agrawal family, touching upon the complexities of familial bonds and creating intrigue about whether the Agrawals will remain united in the face of adversity.
