Karan feels reality shows are fun as they do not require them to shoot for long time. Also, it doesn't get monotonous.
He was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "You can jump from one show to another once the season ends. Whereas in a series you've to stick to the same character graph for a couple of years. I've hosted The Voice before and had participated in Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa."
