It has taken Karan Kundra three years to come back to the fiction genre on the small screen after gaining prominence with Kitani Mohabbat Hai. The actor is wary of the hectic lifestyle of a "daily soap" artist, but he says he will never leave the world of television behind him for Bollywood.
"Television has made me what I am. It has also got me a break in Bollywood. I'll never say goodbye to TV. Look at how big stars are doing shows on TV too these days," Karan told in an interview here.

But what the 29-year-old doesn't want is to be tied down by the pressures of a daily soap actor. "I'm a traveller. I cannot just stay in Bombay (Mumbai) and shoot for 30 days. I refuse to have a life, where you get up at 7 a.m., go for a shoot travelling for two hours outside of Mumbai just because it's cheap to shoot there... then shoot for 15 hours, come back and again wake up at 7 a.m. and do the same thing. "I will keep doing films, theatre and also travelling," he said.
For now, he is kicked about embarking on a new journey in telly-land with "Fanaah - An Impossible Love Story", MTV's season-based show focussing on love in a supernatural setting.
As interesting as it may sound, Karan, who was even seen as the host of teenage crime-based TV series "Gumraah - End Of Innocence", will play the role of a vampire in "Fanaah...".
