An Exclusive Talk With Karan Wahi
We in talks with Karan Wahi..
Karan Wahi a.k.a Rohan of Sony's "Kuch toh Log Kahenge" is charismatic and has innate sense of humour. His recollection of anecdotes leaves you in splits. Read on..
There is a confusion regarding where your hometown is. Some believe it is Delhi and others argue you are from Mohali, Punjab?
I'm a Delhi boy and do not hail from Mohali. I have no idea how this rumour started!
How did the journey from Delhi to Mumbai happen?
I was born during Soccer World cup and that probably explains my sports obsession. I played for Delhi and represented them in U-16 AND 17's. I shocked my parents after 12th std that I did not want to play cricket. There were no opportunities like IPL , and it was not possible for everyone to make it to the Indian Cricket team. I hit the gym and decided to enter Gladrags and Grasims. I got my pictures clicked and was called for my first audition. Ten days later I was in Mumbai.
Which is the character that you have played , is closest to you in real life?
I could not relate to Ranbeer ( Remix ). His demeanor and the accent were certainly not me. Siddhant's character ( Dil Mil Gaye) in the first half of the show was me. I did not have to act as I'm pretty kid like in life.
We hear your character 'Rohan' in Sony's 'Kuch toh Log Kaheinge' is turning negative?
I have been hearing this news as well, but be rest assured it is not turning negative. It is a case of falling in love with someone and then the feeling of jealousy takes over. He tries to do bad , but then he confronts himself and sets things in order.
IPL 5 has just commenced. Who are you cheering for?
There are about 7 teams I'm cheering for! I am friends with Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. But , if I have to pick a team I'd go with Delhi Daredevils !
What is your off day like?
I end up getting at the same time at 7:00AM , all thanks to my maid. The day I have an off , I try and wrap up all my work early. Then I try and spend time with my friends and chill. With IPL now on , four hours are dedicated to it !
You say that you are a bad boyfriend material Why is that?
I'm too carefree and I have not been in a relationship for a really long time. I don't think I can do: accompanying to dinner or taking her shopping. I would not know how to get jealous. I love my friends and I have been their agony uncle for the longest time. My friends say that if I don't get off BBM and Facebook I would surely head for a divorce.
You were a drummer in school. What kind of music do you like?
Although I don't understand the lyrics of House music , I like listening to it. These days where ever I go I hear this song - Tu Mera Hero from Desi Boyz ! It is a good track.
Anything you would want to change about the Indian Television industry?
I would tell the producers to stop running after the TRP's. TRP's do not always paint the complete picture. This leads to the mentality of - 'Yehi Chalta Hai' and we start seeing a digression in the story line.
What is it with telly Industry and the name ' Karan'? There are so many Karan's !
There are about 17 Karan's I know. I think when the panditji said 'Naam - KARAN karo' , parents took it literally and named us Karan ( Laughs ). I think it is just a phase. During our fathers time we have Ajay's and Vijay's and now we have Karan. Hopefully , in the future mother's feel that all kids named 'Karan' are talented and charming!
