Karan Kundra is said to be in talks to star in the reboot of his hit TV show “Kitani Mohabbat Hai”, but the actor says he will return to the series only if the makers have a message for viewers.
Karan and ex-girlfriend Kritika Kamra became household names after starring in the 2009 Balaji Telefilms’ romantic drama. There was a second season of the show in 2010.
A production house is reportedly reviving the show with the duo.
Reacting to the report, Karan told PTI, “It’s a big question. When me and Kritika had done ‘Kitni Mohabbat Hai 1’, we were youngsters, we had just entered the industry. Now we have a stature, both of us have grown immensely in our fields.”
“I have diversified a lot; I have a weight on me. Today, more than my characters, people know me by my name. Keeping this in mind I have to choose my next,” he said.
“I would any day do a show where I am contributing something to the society. If my producer can give a good thought to the viewers through ‘Kitni Mohabbat Hai 3’, I will do it otherwise I won’t do it,” he said.
Karan and Kritika are one of the most loved on-screen couples on television, but the 31-year-old “Gumrah” star said he wouldn’t do a show with the actress, who is his good friend now, just for the heck of it.
“Either it’s going to be a big and different concept where me and Kritika are coming together and doing something which is good. We both have a following and people look upto our work, so the concept will matter a lot,” he said.
Karan is currently seen on adventure reality show “MTV Roadies X4”. This is the actor’s second year on the show as a judge and gang leader.
The actor said he chose “Roadies” because he felt it has an “honour” level.
“’Roadies’ is something I do for myself. Out of all the reality shows, I chose this one because I found an honour level here. I stand for women empowerment, girl’s education, and there is no better show than ‘Roadies’ to give me that platform,” he said.
The actor, who was seen on “Zara Nachke Dikha”, says he does not want to be a part of every reality show just to follow a template.
“I don’t want to associate with every reality show. If you look at the career graph of an actor of my level, you will see that their focus is, after doing hit daily soaps, to do a big reality show, then go to films. I don’t want to do reality shows just for the sake of it,” Karan said.
