Kiran Karmarkar has become the household name with one of the most popular shows of Indian television Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii as Om Agarwal. The Star Plus’ show was about the emotional journey of the wealthy Agarwal family.
The show was known for its numerous plots and sub-plots. Kiran played the lead male character of the show, with Sakshi Tanwar playing his onscreen wife Parvati. Their characters are still among the most recognisable on Indian television. Kiran Karmarkar discussed his reaction to the rerun of Kahani Ghar Khar Kii in an interview with a tabloid.
When asked about his initial reaction upon learning that Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii would be rerun, he stated, “I was quite surprised initially. I mean it was such a big show. But I think it will be fun. I actually loved the idea.”
In fact, he has stated that he would like to watch the show this time and is looking forward to seeing himself 20 years ago.
“I would like to definitely see if I get the time. It started about 20 years ago, actually in the year 2000. So it will truly make for an interesting watch,” he shared.
He also admits to being a self-critic and hopes he isn’t too hard on himself when he watches the rerun. “Although, I quite wonder how I will react to myself and my role that many years ago. I am excited but at the same time, I am sort of a self-critic. When I look back even like two years before, I keep criticizing my scenes, my look etc! So, I am constantly going to be like how am I looking, what am I doing in that scene, how did I do that scene like that!”
As per the reports, Ekta Kapoor show will also premiere on Disney+ Hotstar. Kiran is equally thrilled to have his show on OTT.
He said, “The OTT audience is going to be quite new. They would have heard about her show from the previous generations. So may be out of just sheer curiousity, they would possibly switch to the platform to watch our show. It would be interesting to watch their reaction. The contemporary world is quite fast paced but our shows at that time used to be quite slow. So, I am quite curious to see what their reactions would be like.”
