Karan Mehra will be getting a ‘Rajasthani’ makeover for a sequence in TV show “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”, and the actor was happy to flaunt a ‘mooch’ instead of scruffy stubble.
When it comes to real life, the actor doesn’t seem to have much love for a moustache and prefers a clean-shaven look.
“I believe that staying clean-shaven suits me. Not that I don’t like it otherwise, but I’ve had this look for the longest time. Also, when these guys told me that I’d have to wear a moustache and I had the option to choose from a moustache and a stubble, I knew I would prefer the moustache since it is easier to wear and a look I’d support,” Karan said in a statement.
Karan is popular for playing Naitik Singhannia on the Star Plus show.
As a treat to the small screen audience, “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” and “Diya Aur Baati Hum” will soon be seen addressing the social issue of child-trafficking through a special integration.
With a temporary merger of the two daily soaps, the main protagonists of “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” — Akshara (played by Hina Khan) and Naitik will be seen going undercover to rescue their daughter Naira (played by Ashnoor Kaur) with help from “Diya Aur Baati Hum” female lead IPS Sandhya Rathi (played by Deepika Singh).
Both Karan and Hina have donned authentic Rajasthani outfits for the undercover mission.
