Meri Hanikarak Biwi focuses on the life of Akhilesh and his tryst with Dr. Ira (Jiyaa Shankar).
In the show, Karan’s character is a devotee of Lord Hanuman. He is also shy, simple and honest like Salman’s character Pavan from “Bajrangi Bhaijaan“.
“When I was offered the role of Akhilesh Pandey, I immediately thought of Salman Khan and his look and personality in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘. In fact I was able to draw many parallels between both characters,” Karan said in a statement.
“The similarities in their personalities and approach to life formed the stepping stone when I was preparing to play the role on television. I strongly believe that given these commonalities between our characters, the viewers will find it easier to relate to Akhilesh.
“After being offered Akhilesh’s role, I have been following Salman Khan’s mannerisms in the movie closely. And, while I am not copying him, I do find it to be a great reference point,” he added.
“Meri Hanikarak Biwi” is aired on &TV.
