Popular television actor Karan Mehra, who became a household name after playing the lead character of Naitik Singhania on Star Plus’ longest-running show, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, for more than seven years, is finally making a comeback to television.
Last seen in Khatmal-E-Ishq… Do Phool Ek Maali, which was pulled down abruptly, the actor has been signed on to play an important character in Star Plus’ new offering, Ek Bhram –Sarvagun Sampanna.
When Karan quit Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai in 2016, it surprised his fans and people in the industry to no end. However, the actor says that he never regrets leaving the show as he wanted to focus on his health.
“I have no regrets quitting the show. My health went for a toss and I needed to look after myself,” he tells an Indian daily.
He goes on to add, “It took me a year to get over my health woes. When the news of me quitting YRKKH broke, I started getting calls from other channels for their projects, but I waited and took up only Bigg Boss. I wanted to spend time with my family, travel and explore other avenues and opportunities. After quitting, I travelled to the US.”
Ek Bhram – Sarvagun Sampanna went on air on April 22, 2019, 7 pm.
