Karan had no clue that shooting for this show would involve getting fried in the sizzling-hot Rajasthani sun. The actor candidly shares, "We all suffered in the horrible heat of Bhuj. Plus, I had to wear a jacket which made things all the more grueling."

Karan explains why in spite of the heat the costumes weren't substituted with simple cotton ones. "See, in all the shows heroes have to look different, look cool. Even if he falls in the gutter and gets out, he has to look fairly clean and not look yuck," he laughs.

Talking about his transition from a youth based show to a social-issue centric one, Karan says, "Working in a youth based show is fun. You get to be more of yourself. You have an extended leeway for showing off your silliness. However, doing a serious message oriented show too brings its own contentment. You are, after all, giving out a worthy message (smiles)."

Talking about his character, Karan says, "I play the character of Shantanu. He is a 24 year old fun loving guy. He is rich and spoilt. He has an air of arrogance about him. He feels that everything can be bought with money. But there are no negative shades to this character. It's just that his arrogance puts out such an image."

So will Karan be able to sustain his young Love ne… fan-following with Rang Badalti Odhani, which caters to a more mature audience? Karan answers matter-of-factly, "I'm too much of an amateur to reply to this question. If they like the subject or relate to any particular character, they might just as well take a liking to it!"

Catch Karan Tacker tonight at 10pm on Star One, Beyond Dreams Pvt Ltd and Anahita Productions' Rang Badalti Odhani.

-Manita- 11 years ago The character Shantanu has evolved majorly during the show and his characterisation has been awesome showing various shades of human behaviour. The way Karan has played him leaves me in awe !!!
