Karan Patel is in the industry for almost 2 decades now. Not just television, the handsome hunk did a few films too. For the unversed, he starred in City of Gold (2010), Shootout at Wadala (2013) and Phamous (2018). Now, as the OTT is spreading its wings, Karan is all set to make his digital debut! Yes, television's 'Raman Bhalla' will be exploring the webspace with the second season of MX Player's Raktanchal.
Talking about Raktanchal 2, Karan told a leading daily that he will be heading to Varanasi next week to shoot for the series. "Season 1 was well appreciated and I loved the way the show was presented. The show worked purely on content and there were no gimmicks to sell the show, I liked that. For season 2, I loved the character that they offered and the story, and I am going to Varanasi to shoot next week," Karan told.
Speaking of making a shift from TV to web, Karan said, "The kind of stories being told online aren’t available on the tube, unfortunately. In fact, I think TV should adapt to finite shows with strong storylines. Of course, I don’t mean include nudity and explicit scenes or cuss words but there are so many interesting subjects which are being made for web, can be made for TV as well. But then maybe TV producers cater to a different audience and know best about the business. I think, the ball game is the same, but the players are different."
Karan further spoke about trying his luck in Bollywood. Though he has worked in a few films, he is yet to get the role of his choice. "For me, as an actor, today the challenge is to find work on the big screen; to break the stigma that TV actors can’t become film stars. I am not disheartened as one should keep trying and not everyone is lucky to get a break in one go, some take years, some take months while some get it instantly. Each one has to keep trying in their capacity till they strike," the actor added.
Karan was last seen in Ekta Kapoor's Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.
