Karan will be playing a Bihari guy, his father is a powerful and a Sarpanch. Unlike his father, he is not rude and negative. When contacted he said, "Last year, they approached me to play the lead role in Kaala Teeka. But at that time I couldn't do it, because I had an exclusive contract with the other channel. Although we have finished shooting for 'Mohi', but the show was on-air, that's why I had to let go the project. But as they say, we get what we are destined to. The makers of Kaala Teeka approached me again, after 1 year to play the lead role."
When quizzed, did he regret not taking the show, then, he said, "I don't have regrets, but yes, to be frank, I felt bad because I couldn't do the show the last time. But then I realized, its a blessing in disguise, I utilized the break to complete my personal commitments. I bought a house, got married and spend ample time with my better half and family. It would be difficult if I did the show at that time. Whatever happens, happens for good."
