New Delhi: TV actor Karan Patel has teamed up with media mogul Ekta Kapoor again for new show `Ye Hai Mohobbatein`, which will see him playing a mature character.

Karan, 30, who gained popularity in showbiz with Kapoor`s shows like `Kasturi`, `Kasamh Se` and `Kkavyanjali`, said she is a mentor.

"Ekta is the guiding force in my life. I have always listened to her as she has given a new high to my career. I share a comfort level with Ekta. I have always believed in her," Karan told reporters.

With the show, which will go on air from December 3 on Star Plus, Karan is making a comeback in fiction after four years.

"It feels nice to make a comeback to fiction genre with Ekta`s show. Working with her is always a pleasure. I am busy with reality shows these days but I couldn`t say no to her," said Karan, who participated in `Nach Baliye 3` and `Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa` season six.

`Ye Hai Mohobbatein` is a love story of a middle-age man and a young girl. The story begins after a marriage gets over and explores the theme of a second chance in love.

"Portraying the character (Raman Bhalla) was a challenge for me.
He is a rich businessman with a daughter from his failed marriage. The role is much older to my original age," he said.

Karan was last seen in an anthology series `Teri Meri Love Stories`. Asked if he has a fascination towards romantic stories, he said, "I don`t like love stories. It`s just a coincidence that my last fiction show was also a love story. But both of them are very different."
