But the model-actor gained fame with the role of Shantanu in the TV serial, Rang Badalti Odhani.

In a week’s time, we will clock a year to when the lockdown was first announced because of the Covid-19 pandemic, and we have all had our own learnings in the last year. While some learned to value time in a better way, others learned the importance of spending time with your loved ones. So Pinkvilla, got in touch with some leading television actors to know about their experiences and learnings from the last year. Here’s what Karan Tacker, Bigg Boss 14’s Aly Goni, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, Rashami Desai, and Chahatt Khanna have to say. Read on...

Lockdown helped you realize who’s most important to us, and for me, it’s my family and closest friends. Besides this, we also learned to not take nature and the environment for granted, as this period was a lash back of doing that. So a sense of realization is definitely my key takeaway from last year. 

"If there's one person whom we should thank each day after our family, it is the teacher and mentor. I honestly don't have enough words to describe my bond with my teachers. I can say they are the ones behind whatever success I have achieved in my life," Karan said, on the eve of Teachers Day.

"In fact, the charm of life is to keep earning so even today I rely strongly on people I consider my teachers and hold the guru Shishya relationship very close to my heart. So, to sum it up, I would just like to say that I'll be forever indebted to them," added the actor.

Namit added: "I believe a good mentor can transform the life of a person by guiding and supporting them. I was lucky enough to have fantastic good mentors in my life, I owe my career to them, especially the ones who've taught me music. I look up to them and I'll consider my life fruitful enough if I can be half of what they are."

Actress Rinku Rajguru asserted that "coming from a family where both my parents are teachers, as far as a teacher or a guru is concerned, it has always been my parents in my life".

"They are amazing teachers not just for me but also for people across that have been taught by them. They have been my guiding light, inspiration, guru, and most of all, my best friends. Their sheer strength, empathetic attitude, and kind personality will win you over. I can't even begin to think how grateful I am to them for supporting me and trusting me and being my pillar of strength," said the actress.

Ganesh Chaturthi is usually a grand affair in Maharashtra but this year they feel is going to be different. With pandemics looming around, Karan Tacker, who has been welcoming Baapaa home for the last 12 years, won't be bringing it this year keeping safety in mind. He said, "Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most celebrated festivals in my family.  We have been welcoming Lord Ganesha for the past 12 years. It's that time of the year when my friends and family are reunited under one roof, no matter where we are. Keeping up with the current scenario in mind, we with a heavy heart won't be bringing Bappa's murti at home as we want to keep up with everyone's safety."

He added, "It is quite unfortunate that we cannot celebrate this on a large scale this year, but, the real essence of the festival is to celebrate Bappa in our prayers while our loved ones are kept safe in their homes. I will be doing the prayers with my family at home and wish we all celebrate this festival even bigger and better next year. So, I would humbly request everyone to adhere to the rules crafted by the government with minimal people and I am certain, we will celebrate the upcoming festivals with more zeal and enthusiasm. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi Everyone!”

Karan Tacker, who is best remembered for his role in Star Plus's Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, has temporarily shifted to Lonavala. Yes, Karan has moved out of his Mumbai residence amid the increasing Coronavirus scare in the city. The actor shifted to Lonavala with his parents and his sister, as five people from his Mumbai residential complex (in Andheri) tested positive for COVID-19. The actor decided for safety purposes, as he was worried about his parent's health, who are aged. 

Talking about his decision, the handsome actor told Mid-day that after the number of COVID-19 cases in his building shot up, he decided to leave the city. He said that his parents are old, and he is constantly worried about their health conditions. Karan further added that much to their fortune, they all are safe until now. He stated that both far. Aamby and Lonavala have healthcare facilities, and if needed (that is in worst situations), they can travel back to Mumbai again. 

The young actor also added that he is sharing the household load with his sister, and also goes to the supermarket for grocery shopping with her. When Karan was asked about getting back to work, the actor told him that if he needs to begin shooting again, then he will move back to the city (Mumbai). He will go back to his Lonavala residence only after quarantining himself. The talented actor also stated that would be the best scenario to return to Mumbai as soon as the pandemic starts settling down. 

Amid the extension of Coronavirus lockdown, many of you might be wondering what to binge on next. For those of you who love crime and espionage thrillers, we have a treat today. As Pinkvilla’s Pick of the day, we’ve come up with a web series that is gritty and intense and it will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is none other than Kay Kay Menon and Karan Tacker Starrer Special Ops. The intense espionage thriller series is bound to pump up your adrenaline. 

Created by filmmaker Neeraj Pandey, Special Ops revolves around Himmat Singh (Kay Kay) who is associated with the Research and Analysis Wing. He goes around finding similar patterns around several attacks that take place over the years in the country and comes to the conclusion that he is looking for one terrorist, Ikhlaq Khan, who is behind everything. However, in order to search for him, he has formed his own team that comprises his special officers who are spread across the globe.

Himmat’s team includes Farooq Ali (Karan Tacker), Ruhani Syed Khan (Meher Vij), Balakrishna Reddy (Vipul Gupta), Avinash (Muzzamil Ibrahim), and Juhi Kashyap (Saiyami Kher) who get involved when they find a lead in Dubai. Farooq Ali takes Himmat’s help and tries to unravel the mystery man,  Ikhlaq Khan. The other team members come forth during the climax of the series and help Farooq in his hunt for a man that no one believes exists. While at first, the episodes may appear long, with Kay Kay Menon’s acting and the plot, Neeraj Pandey gets your full attention. Here are 5 reasons why Pinkvilla Picks Special Ops to be binged amid the extended lockdown. 

Karan Tacker made his acting comeback after seven years with Neeraj Pandey’s Special Ops which also starred Kay Kay Menon, and Saiyami Kher, among others. The actor plays the role of agent Farooq in the series which has gone on to garner lots of praises. In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, we asked Karan what made him say yes to this show which brought him back from acting break, working with Neeraj Pandey, and more. Over to him: 

I always waited for an opportunity like this where I could go as an actor and where my character would have an arc, and have graduation in a broad line story. I was looking for a project where I play a character that no one has seen me do. I have always played romantic roles on Television and this was absolutely the opposite of that. Kudos to Neeraj Sir for looking for me in this character. So it is basically the script. 

Neeraj Pandey owns the space of espionage and spy thrillers and that is one of the reasons why I chose this. I know it sounds cliched when we say, it was a good script, a good director, and where the character developed well but to be honest, this is exactly what every actor looks for. My experience working with Neeraj Ji was absolutely fun. When you have a director like Neeraj Pandey who has also co-written it, the clarity of the script is immense. Neeraj sir as a person is very uncluttered and clear as a person of what he wants. He is also very forthcoming with suggestions. I remember there were times when he would discuss scenes and come to a consensus after hearing your point of view as well. 

I feel exciting times are always there, it is about what you make of it. When I started TV, it was an exciting time for me. AS you grow as an actor, your understanding of craft and content also evolves, so today I find this exciting. It could be the same say two years from now. 

The audience has become much wiser. they have become more interested in good content primarily and since they are enjoying it, we are also enjoying working. It is an empowering time for everyone actually. I feel because of the web, writers feel empowered because you get to say a story in 8-9 episodes irrespective of films where you have 2 hours or TV which is open-ended. 

Though the show has ended, Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai will always be one of the special shows for the viewers. The story of the show revolved around two sisters Jeevika (Krystle Dsouza) and Maanvi (Nia Sharma). While Jeevika and Viren's (Karan Tacker) crackling chemistry was loved by the viewers, Maanvi and Virat's (Kushal Tandon) cute banter was one of the highlights of the TV show. 
Well, it's been 7 years today since the show started and Karan Tacker took to Twitter to share some of his memories from the show. Karan Tacker took to Twitter and went a trip down memory lane as the show completed 7 years today. He wrote, "Can’t believe it’s been this long! But what amazing memories, can never forget the outdoor of Hrishikesh, bliss! This show will always hold a big compartment of my heart!"
