Karan says it was “emotionally taxing” to see his father go through a dull phase.
“There were times when I saw dad in his low phase where he wasn’t getting the desired work and as a kid, I wanted to help him. But at that age, you can’t do much. I am happy right now that I joined the industry. He can relax a bit and feel that his son is there to support him,” Karan told PTI.

“She asked me if I was sure. She told me that there will be good days and bad days here and you have to really push hard during the bad days. When I told my father, even he asked me if I had thought it through.
“Then we broke the news to my grandfather ( Dharmendra). He told me how in his days, the industry was like a family and now it has become corporate and the emotional connection has gone. He told me to stay true to myself and never succumb to the pressure to be anyone else.”
Also starting Sahher Bamba, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is scheduled to release on September 20.
Talking about their debut film ' Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas', Karan shared with us the experience of the first day of his shoot and how he faced not only the camera but his dad behind the camera too. "For the first shot, Mujhe Ek truck and Ek particular mark pe rok the. I wondered how tough could it possibly be. Bas truck mark pe roko, roll down the window, Chashma, dialogue bolo ho Gaya. But it was actually easier said than done! First time main mark se pehle ruk gaya, phir mark ke aage chala gaya, teesri baar toh gaadi ruk gayi. So I was like kya year, I can’t get this simple shot done. Everyone was looking at me and my hands started shaking. I started crying. I was like I don’t think it’ll work for me as I can’t even get this simple shot done right," said Karan, adding "Luckily it was the first-day nerves only, the next day was better. Dad would later on tell me at home where I went wrong and how I should work on it. Thanks to all his support, I owe my personal and acting growth to him."
During the promotions of their first film 'Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas', rumor mills were abuzz about how Karan and Sather didn’t share a very cordial bond in the beginning. The actress claimed that "Inherently, Karan is a shy person. We would mostly just talk about work, in the beginning, our friendship grew over time. It was this party we had in Manali, like our whole crew. At that party we ended up enjoying and chilling, it was fun. I feel that was the real icebreaking moment for us. Now, I can say that we’re friends for life," said Sather. FRESH AND HAPPENING!
Sahher, the Shimla girl who won the Mumbai finals of Oppo Bombay time Fresh Face 2016 organized by the Times of India, got selected for this film after a couple of auditions. She said, "When I came to Mumbai, my actual struggle started because I didn’t know who to meet, but I started auditioning here and there. Just to prepare me a little bit in whatever little capacity, I thought a pageant is a good option because I’ll get some sort of exposure and I’ll learn how to answer questions, then it might help me even overcome stage fright. It just gave me a lot of confidence and I got a little comfortable with the cameras being around. When I won the Fresh Face in Mumbai, I got a call from the casting director to audition for this film." After giving her 100% in the auditions that happened over a period of a month, Sahher got a call in February 2017 that she had been selected. The actress candidly added, "The Times of India Fresh Face gave me a lot of confidence and exposure so it has definitely been a stepping stone in my journey."
When asked if Karan had to struggle in order to bag The role in the film, the actor got slightly offended and said, "Obviously I met directors. I’m not going to tell you who I met. We all have our own struggles and work just like anybody else. Your struggles are different from mine. It's as simple as that."Ever since new-age actors like Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmann Khurrana have been doing content-driven films, more stars are becoming open to trying different and out-of-the-box roles. Speaking about the same Karan said, "I’d love to try out comedy or to even play a villain. As an actor you can’t stay stuck in one zone otherwise it becomes boring. These days scripts speak, and quality content speaks. I’d even like to try the digital space as it’s a wider range with more freedom. With digital you can actually explore yourself a little bit more because it doesn’t have much baggage, it doesn’t have any censorship issues. You can just create anything to your heart’s content." Sahher seemed very excited when asked about getting to play a negative role. "I think it’s very exciting to play a negative role. I’d love to try it out. I’m also open to doing something on digital platforms," she said.
Speaking about healthy competition and standing together as a unit with the contemporaries, Karan said, “We’re all peers and we should work together. As a film fraternity we should be one unit rather than competition among ourselves because if we’re a unit and we support each other, we can take it ahead. Eventually, we’re all doing it for the same reason; we love it, so might as well do it together.”
Recently, Karan also made news for showing a keen interest in doing a remake of his father’s film Arjun while his dad Sunny said he didn’t want Karan to do remakes of films. Ask this young lad more about this and he said, "My father believes that someone should not make a remake for just cashing in on the perspective. If there’s something concrete and made strong with a good director, then it’s okay. I shall however try my best to convince my father to let me act in remakes and if I get the chance, I’d love to do Arjun which happens to be my father’s favorite film."
A view of both Karan and Sahher’s Instagram accounts shows their love for animals. "I’ve got two labradors, Lui and Coco. Lui doesn’t like to be pet or hugged, whereas Coco, she’ll come affectionately, she likes to be loved, she’s all jumpy. They’re my biggest stress-busters,” said Karan, adding, “Every time I go home and play with them they smile at me, irrespective of my mood. That really cheers me up, my babies are so loving. My house has always had dogs or cats. Lui and Coco are like my own kids. If anything happens to them, I get very worked up."
Sather, who now stays in Mumbai, doesn’t have any pets of her own but loves being around animals. She said, "I think the love that you receive from animals is unconditional and they’re your biggest stress-buster. I feel all of us should really do our bit for them, be it adopting or feeding them or just doing something for them. One of my biggest aims in life is to adopt strays or just create awareness about helping them."

Karan Deol is only one film old as an actor, but his entire family has been in the business for decades. Hence, he knows how much has changed in the industry over the years. For starters, he feels, that today, actors are more than just their profession.
“Dad’s (Sunny Deol) and dada’s (Dharmendra) time was completely different. Now there are a lot of other factors. As an actor, you are a brand. You are selling yourself like a commodity out there, promoting yourself on social media. Back during those times, social media was not big, there were different ways to connect with your fans,” says the 30-year-old, adding that you have to stay “relevant” with today’s generation.
While he is getting used to being active on social media, the one aspect that he still can’t wrap his head around is film promotions. “I need to get a little better at it, and get a hang of it,” quips the actor, who made his debut with Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas in 2019.
Point out how he is not ‘spotted’ like other actors, nor seen at any parties, and Deol would like to believe he’s different from others.
“You have to be who you are, and not someone you are not. I do not do those things which would make me uncomfortable or do not suit me. You have to let your personality show its honest side, you can’t lie about yourself,” says the actor, currently prepping for his next, sequel to Apne (2007).
He shares that the best career advice he has received is from his grandfather. “He says that at his age, he is still learning. He tells me to look around me, absorb everything. You never know, what you can learn one day or some interesting character can catch your eye which you can implement later. In our lives too, we are stuck, and stopped seeing around us,” he concludes.
