From getting noticed through Facebook to becoming one of the first actors to cross the million likes mark on the same platform, Karan Kundrra has come a long way. Playing Arjun in Kitni Mohabbat Hai Zindagi, the young Punjabi became a sensation overnight. His pairing with Kritika Kamra was also much loved and there was no looking back for him from there. While Karan appeared in the show’s next season, on the other hand he was building his way towards the big screen. Debuting with Pure Punjabi, a regional film, he soon got his big break with Vikram Bhatt’s Horror Story in 2013. He made his comeback to television with MTV Fanaah where he played a vampire and also dabbled with hosting youth shows like Gumraah, He Ticket and Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya.
In the next couple of years, Karan continued making his mark in the Punjabi film industry with Jatt Romantic and Control Bhaji Control. He also made his big comeback on TV with Yeh Kahan Aagaye Hum. The actor’s biggest career milestone came when he was chosen as one of the judge of Roadies. He led a gang in two consecutive years and also hosted Love School with girlfriend Anusha Dandekar. His involvement with youth shows and having an affable personality, Karan has truly become one of the most popular young stars in the industry currently.
As the actor turns 33 today, we tell you why he is truly a youth icon.
Knows his social media game:
In the time of Internet, social media plays a major role in our lives. Well, Karan seems to have realized the power a decade back. He got his first break after Ekta Kapoor noticed his pictures on Facebook and asked him to audition for her show. The rest, as we know, is history. An active social media user, Karan continues to rock social media as he keeps interacting with his fans, and inspiring them every day with his posts and talks.
Passionate about his work:
Brawn with brain is always a great match. Karan is not just a good-looking face with a perfect body but he also has the much-needed intelligence. Although Karan is a proud owner of an international call center in his hometown, he happily moved to Mumbai for his passion. He smartly juggles between his business and acting commitments that will provide him a much better and longer security in life. Post an appreciable presence in Mubarakan, he is now looking forward to star as the lead in Vikram Bhatt’s horror flick 1921.
The best boyfriend in town:
From showering compliments to sharing adorable posts of each other, twinning while on dates to even coloring their hair of the same shade, Karan and Anusha are truly the most adorable couple in tinsel town. Karan, who was alleged to be a Casanova, post his breakup with Kritika, has become a responsible boyfriend and would even get his lady love the moon, if she ever asks for it. Anusha is truly lucky to have got a boyfriend like him, who loves and supports her like no one else.
Actors are supposed to be well dressed but when it comes to Karan, he makes style statements whenever he steps out of his house. Karan’s appearances have an uber cool and trendy look that inspires many young men out there. Karan’s instagram posts look no less than fashion magazine shoots and we just can’t have enough of him.
Stands up for the right:
Karan might seem to be a rich spoilt brat but he is an extremely responsible person. We have seen Karan on Roadies standing up for women rights and anti-bullying. And even when he is not TV, the actor has time and again proved to be a thorough gentleman as he not just supports his girlfriend on social media but also shoots back at the trollers in his inimitable style.
Happy Birthday, Karan Kundrra!
