Mumbai: After playing the bad guy in Kasautii Zindagi Kay and Dil Se Di DuaÖ Saubhagyavati Bhava, Karanvir Bohra is very pleased with his new role as the romantic hero in Qubool Hai. ‚ÄúThat was one of the major reasons why I took up Ahil‚Äôs role. I was tired of playing the bad guy. Even my fans have been writing to me saying they‚Äôre happy that I have taken up a different type of character. Being romantic suits me apparently,‚ÄĚ says Karanvir.
Fans had predicted doom for Qubool Hai after the original lead Karan Singh Grover quit, but surprisingly the show has picked up again after Karanvir‚Äôs entry. The actor admits that he was apprehensive about stepping in after Karan‚Äôs exit. ‚ÄúThere were a lot of things being said when I entered the show. I realised that people would feel betrayed if I played the same character that Karan (Singh) played. So when I came in, it was a categorical leap for the show, almost like a second season. Just the other day I was at Ekta Kapoor‚Äôs party and she and her mum, Shobha aunty, told me how much they love the young romance in Qubool Hai; it made me feel that we are heading in the right direction.‚ÄĚ
Karanvir also has an upcoming South film he‚Äôs working on.
‚ÄúYes, the talks are on. That character is somewhat like Prem from Kasautii Zindagi Kay. Then I also have a Hindi film, Mumbai 125 km releasing soon. Life looks good.‚ÄĚ
