While talking about his role in an interview with Mumbai Mirror he said, “The writers are planning some major twists but I don’t know what they are. Every actor gives something new and unique to a character, I’ll try to do the same. But I have seen the original as I was a part of it.”
Karan described his look in a playful way saying, “People say with age comes maturity, I say with mascara comes maturity.” He further added, “Mr. Bajaj is an iconic character and it has lived on in people’s minds for years. So, it’s a matter of honor to take it ahead from where Ronit Roy and Karan Singh Grover left and add my nuances to it. I intend to make this character as iconic and loved as Mr. Bhalla (his character in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein) had become over six years.”
The role was originally played by Ronit Roy and later by Karan Singh Grover in the recent reboot. Karan Patel also played a small role in the reboot where he played a friend of Mr. Bajaj’s son. It is one of the most-watched TV shows, produced by Ekta Kapoor, features Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes in lead roles.
