Yeh Hai Mohabbatein fame actor Karan Patel will soon be embarking on a new journey with Khatron Ke Khiladi season 10. Not only this, the actor is currently on cloud 9 as he embraced parenthood and welcomed a baby girl on December 12, 2019, they named her Mehr.
Karan recently opened up about a problematic period in his life, in a recent interview. He revealed how stardom got to his head, but he later made an effort and rectified his approach towards work.
The actor was quoted as saying in a media report, “I messed up badly. Stardom got to my head, and I got too big for my boots during the course of my show, Kasturi (2007-2009). I would report late, that too, drunk, on the set. I thought that I could get away with it because I had become an overnight star. But not everyone will tolerate that kind of behaviour for long. The show ended and I was out of work for a couple of years.”
Karan also added that stardom is great to achieve but hard to maintain and that’s when he worked on himself and made efforts to rectify his approach towards work. He said that he has now disciplined himself and while he doesn’t make it set on time, he isn’t as late as he used to be.
Karan Patel also shared that he would drink on set earlier, and now he doesn’t. “I am getting there, slowly. I remember apologising to Ekta (Kapoor) for the mistakes I made in the past and telling her that I won’t repeat them. But I also told her that I will make newer mistakes. No man is perfect. Everybody needs a second chance in life and I am glad that I got it,” he said. Well, it’s never too late to mend your ways.
Khatron Ke Khiladi 10 will be airing on Saturday, Feb 21.
