IT’S A BLESS­ING

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Pop­u­lar for por­tray­ing neg­a­tive char­ac­ters on the small screen, tele­vi­sion ac­tor Karanvir Bohra (above) says af­ter be­com­ing a fa­ther to twin daugh­ters, he has evolved as a per­son and has be­come more re­spon­si­ble.

“The only evo­lu­tion that has hap­pened in me is that I have be­come more re­spon­si­ble. Re­spon­si­bil­ity comes when chil­dren come into your life,” Karanvir says.

Karan mar­ried model-VJ Tee­jay Sidhu in 2006. The two be­came par­ents to two twin girls — Vi­enna Bohra and Raya Bella Bohra — in Oc­to­ber 2016. The 34-year-old ac­tor feels men now pre­fer to spend more time with their chil­dren. “The evo­lu­tion I have seen is that the fa­thers [now] have got in­volved a lot into their baby’s life. So, it’s easy for the mother also,” he adds. Asked how easy or dif­fi­cult it is for new par­ents to han­dle par­ent­hood, Karan says, “Only when you stay with a child or a child stays with you, then you re­alise how dif­fi­cult or easy it is. In our case, we are re­ally blessed that we have th­ese God’s bless­ings. They are pretty easy go­ing. They do have their bad days also when they are sick or up­set, but most of the time they are easy.”

The ac­tor adds hav­ing his mother, mother-in-law and sis­ter around has been a great help in han­dling the 9-mon­thold twins. He de­scribes par­ent­hood as a “dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence” al­to­gether.

Asked how he is strik­ing a bal­ance be­tween his work and per­sonal life, he says, “For­tu­nately, the show I am do­ing right now doesn’t oc­cupy too much of my time. I shoot three-to-four days in a week and rest of the time I spend with my ba­bies.”

He firmly be­lieves that men should do their bit to sup­port their wives. “I think ev­ery fa­ther should be in­volved,” he adds.
