Karan Goddwani on his share of ups and downs in the industry

Karan Goddwani, who came to the limelight as the lead in SAB TV’s Jugni Chali Jalandhar, is thankful to the Almighty for keeping him grounded and happy during his good as well as bad phases in life.

Speaking about the ups and downs he has faced in the industry, the actor tells, “I have seen a very bad phase where I had no job in hand for a long time. I can still recollect the days post Jugni Chali Jalandhar when I left for Spain to help out my family as they wanted to shift base to India. When I got back, things were very difficult for me. I was typecast as the petwala hero in Jugni, and I had to work on my physique to have a second innings on television. I got into good shape but things did not work in my favour. There was a time when I even contemplated to take up a new profession, as I was an engineer and a dancer also. And that is when Rang Badalti Odhani happened. Unfortunately, Star One went for a revamp and the show saw its end. That was again a very bad phase for me.”

After a pause, he adds, “Luckily, I bagged the role of NK in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (Star Plus) and people liked my character so much that I was called back on the show. I am very happy now and thankful to God.”

Karan is also seen essaying the role of Ranveer in Colors’ Chhal Sheh Aur Maat. However, the actor is looking forward to more exciting roles on television. “If things work out I might take up another show. Also, there has been a buzz about Chhal going off air.”

On juggling between two shows, the actor states, “It gets difficult to be a part of two shows, especially when the shows have no bank. There are times when I am shooting throughout the day for Iss Pyaar Ko Kys Naam Doon and at nights on the sets of Chhal. However, I am lucky to have EPs (Executive Producers) who are very co-operative. They adjust my time in such a way that it does not clash with the other show.”

We wish you all the very best for your future endeavours, Karan!!!
