Not too many action shows on TV: Karan Grover

Mumbai: Television actor Karan Grover gets funny with the new show ‘Hum Aapke Hain In-Laws’ and fulfils his wish to work in a universal comedy. He next wants to do an action show on the small screen.

"I want to do action shows on television. I don`t think we have too many of those today," said Karan.

Talking about the comedies, he told reporters: "There are so many comedy shows, which cater to a particular set of audience... most of them are language or state based. But our show is universal. I like such shows and want to be a part of them."

The actor has been a part of many shows on TV like ‘Meri Awaz Ko Mil Gayi Roshni’, ‘Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki’, ‘Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli’, and ‘Teri Meri Love Stories’. After having worked in different genres, he feels that comedy is the toughest genre.

"I used to feel that drama is tough, but now I feel that comedy is far more challenging. In a normal soap, there are so many other factors which support you like the music. But in comedy, it is all about your performance," the 30-year-old confessed.

Born and brought up in Mumbai, acting was not an accident for Karan, rather a well-planned career choice.

"It was not like I was suddenly discovered. It was a well-thought out decision on my part and I am glad, I got into this line. Although I had not planned the medium (I wanted to get into), I had even auditioned for radio," he said.
