Ac­tor by chance, Karan­vir is lov­ing his web se­ries stint

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Yashika Mathur n

Act­ing is some­thing that hap­pened by chance for Karan­vir Sharma. Or one can say, it fol­lowed af­ter he took ac­tor Anu­pam Kher’s ad­vice se­ri­ously!

“I come from a busi­ness back­ground. I wanted to be a part of this medium and act­ing was the last thing on my mind... I was an as­so­ciate ed­i­tor, an as­sis­tant di­rec­tor, [and] have been part of pro­duc­tion. Act­ing just hap­pened when Anu­pam Kher said that I am wast­ing my time and I should face the cam­era. Once I did, there was no look­ing back,” says Karan­vir, who took train­ing in Kher’s act­ing school, and has worked in films such as Sadda Adda (2012) and Shaadi Mein Za­roor Aaana (2017). His next is a film that stars Sunny Deol.

Karan­vir has also been part of web se­ries such as Girl In The City and Haq Se. He cred­its the medium for the spurt in his pop­u­lar­ity. “I had a stint in TV shows as well and it did good for me... When I got into web [se­ries], I didn’t know that it would get so big for me. I knew the kind of fan base it had with the young­sters. I for­got that they com­prise the max­i­mum In­dian au­di­ence. I was hon­estly sur­prised... over­whelmed,” he signs off.
