Career & Recognition
After having made up his mind to switch to acting, Karan did an acting course at the Kishore Namit Acting Institute in Mumbai, and also assisted directors like Rajkumar Hirani and Ram Gopal Verma on their films before switching full time to modeling. In 2009, he received the much-awaited break and bagged the role of Naitik in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. The show became an instant hit and is still considered to be one of the most popular TV shows of recent times.
Karan was instantly noticed and appreciated by everyone and took the TV industry by a storm with his success. In 2009, he received the “Most Promising Actor (Male)” award from New Talent Awards, “Best Actor – Drama (Popular)” award at the Indian Television Academy Awards, and “Favorite Naya Sadasya” and “Favorite Yogya Jodi” award at Star Parivaar Awards. This was followed by “Best Debutant – Male” at Kalakar Awards in 2010, and the “Best Actor – Critics” award by Zee Gold Awards in the same year.
With the show’s success and constantly rising popularity, Karan’s fan following also started increasing. In the years to come, he received many more awards. With Star Parivaar Awards only, Karan managed to get at least one award each year; he received “Favorite Jodi” and “Favorite Pati” in 2011, “Favorite Beta” in 2012, “Favorite Pita” in 2013 and 2014 both, and “Favorite Pati” again in 2015.

It’s surprising and impressive how Karan has managed to win all these awards consistently for his performance on one show alone.
Karan Mehra’s Good-Bye to YRKKH
Rumors filled the Internet recently that the reason why Karan Mehra abruptly called it quits on his show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was because of a tiff with the leading lady of the show, Hina Khan. However, just as this news was sinking in, fans got hope as rumors of Karan’s return to the TV screen on Bigg Boss 10 started spreading. Many feel that Karan may have left his daily soap to be a part of the popular non-fiction controversial show, Bigg Boss 10, hosted by none other than Salman Khan.
It remains to be seen how much success and popularity the reality show will bring for Karan, as many contestants have been known to show their real and dark side on the show and lose their fans in the process. On the other hand, if Karan is anything like his on-screen avatar as Naitik, then chances are that the audience’s love will only grow for him and he will sail through the show easily, probably broadening his career prospects in the process.
