Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, the country is facing a grim situation. The second wave of Covid-19 led to a spike in cases and as a result, the healthcare sector has been overburdened. In these unprecedented times, the frontline workers have relentlessly worked to help patients fight the deadly virus. Television actor Karan Wahi, who lost two relatives this month, spoke about joining a Covid relief campaign during these trying times.
In a chat with Hindustan Times, Karan opened up about donating to a cause and later becoming a part of the campaign. He explained, “When you experience personal loss, it does take a toll. What’s helping me divert my mind is helping people.” After the actor donated funds for the cause, he joined a campaign called Healing with Humanity, which was started by Rahul Shetty and Paul Marshal. The actor explained the gravity of the situation amid the prolonged pandemic. “If someone privileged like me is reaching a point where I am worried about my next job or how long can I survive on my savings, then there are a lot of people out there, who are really suffering,” the star added.
While the campaign was initially meant to cater to people from the industry, they soon started getting calls from around the country. Speaking about the campaign, the actor expressed his gratitude to all those contributing to the initiative. They have sent out relief packets in multiple cities including Mumbai, Bengaluru, Bhuvneshwar, Delhi, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, and Mogra in Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Karnataka.
Bigg Boss 14 premiered with a bang two weeks ago. After t, the show is picking pace now, as contestants are finally showing their real personalities. However, there's one contestant who became the talk of the town from day one. Yes, we're talking about Nikki Tamboli. With her 'I am what I am' personality the South Indian actress grabbed many eyeballs.
While for housemates she might be a 'troublemaker,' for the seniors (Hina Khan, Sidharth Shukla, and Gauahar Khan), she's playing the game right. From standing for herself to wearing her heart on her sleeves, Nikki has undoubtedly made her place in the BB 14 house. Not once, but twice, she proved her mettle and snatched the immunity, leaving seniors wowed. She impressed them with her performance and went on to become the first and only confirmed fresher to date.
It's simple, 'You can love her or hate her, but you cannot ignore her.' Though many viewers might not like Nikki, many also think she is a 'perfect Bigg Boss candidate.' We at Pinkvilla recently got into a candid chat with Karan Wahi, who is all set to host Bigg Buzz on Voot, and asked him who he sees in the Top 5 in Bigg Boss season 4. Not much to your surprise, the handsome hunk thinks Nikki will certainly make it to the Top 5 of the game.
He stated, 'I have a clear thought that Nikki Tamboli will definitely be in the top five of Bigg Boss season 14.' Citing reasons for the same, Karan shared, ' It is a pattern. I feel that Bigg Boss fans love to keep unique characters until the end. In real-time, the things that she does in the house might be right on her part, but she won’t be right for the entire house. But, I think that is what creates interest, and the question is who is wrong but there is no one wrong in this case. I feel the fans of Bigg Boss be supportive of a character like her because they think she is and will be very interesting, and this, in turn, makes the house interesting too.'
While Karan sees Nikki in the top 5, he feels Rahul Vaidya is a strong player. When asked about his favorite fresher from BB 14, Karan revealed that he knows a few of them like Rahul Vaidya, Pavitra Punia, and Eijaz Khan personally. 'I would pick Rahul Vaidya because I have spoken to him a lot and I feel he will be very interesting. He has this unique thought about him that he carries himself with and what I like about him right now is that he is not going mad or yelling in the house right now. I feel like when somebody is not constantly yelling he is quite soothing to my ears,' said Karan on his favorite BB 14 contestant.
He further went on to sing praises of the singer and lauded his nature. 'I think he is such a goofy guy, and when you are naturally goofy it will help you in the long run as it provides a calming quotient in the house. If I was in the house, I would definitely want someone who can sing like Rahul does so that everyone gets entertained. He enjoys a good popularity among females, which adds as an advantage for him,' opined Karan.
Ganesh Chaturthi is around the corner and it has sent a wave of festivity and positivity across the nation amid the COVID 19 outbreak. While the pandemic has made the celebrations a somber affair, everyone has been trying to celebrate the holy festival in their own way. In fact, television shows have also been taken over by a festive vibe. Amid this, Rohit Shetty led Khatron Ke Khiladi Made in India and will also be seen celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi on the sets ahead of the Ticket to Finale task.
Interestingly, Karan Wahi, who is known for making eco-friendly idols of Lord Ganesh every year for Ganesh Chaturthi, manage to keep up with his tradition and was seen making the idol on Khatron Ke Khiladi Made in India sets. Elated over the same, the television heartthrob shared a candid picture of himself wherein he was busy making the idol.
Interestingly, Karan was accompanied by Nia Sharma, Bharti Singh, Jasmin Bhasin, and Haarsh Limachiyaa for Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations on Khatron Ke Khiladi Made in India. The makers even shared a beautiful video wherein in the contestants of this stunt-based reality show were seen preparing for the holy festival. The contestants are gearing up for the ticket to the final task and given the neck-to-neck competition, they certainly need Lord Ganesha’s blessings in the game.
Karan Wahi is undoubtedly one of the most followed and loved actors we have. Be it TV, films, or the web, the actor has proved his mettle everywhere and while discussing the ongoing favoritism and nepotism debate with him, Karan made some valid points. The Hundred actor emphasized that to bring about a change, the audience first needs to reflect and change their perspective. If they don't support actors, nothing will change.
"I think the debate is only wrong. It is the audience who needs to change their perspective. Why call me inferior to another person just because of the platform we come from. I think the audience needs to reflect on that aspect. If I work on TV, and on the web as well, and even in films then why just call me a TV actor? Call me an actor Na? I am not saying I have a problem with it, I am very proud to start from TV, it has made me what I am today. But, to segregate people based on the platform they work on, and then talk about equal opportunities? We shouldn’t be. Eventually, who is making us a star? The audience. I feel the audience needs to give creditability to everybody and then see the change," he shared.
Karan also added that while we compare ourselves to the west, there is no one separating actors basis the platform. No one calls Jennifer Aniston a TV actor because she was a part of a popular sitcom. "Today, there might be someone who is more talented than me but hasn’t gotten the opportunity and that is because the audience has loved me more. Humko Kaam Tabhi Milega jab audience supports Karegi. We live in a social media world where there are people who have perhaps done nothing big but are earning more than us, who are these people following them, making them stars? It is the audience. We say that this doesn’t happen abroad, it is because there, an actor is an actor, no one says that ‘oh Jennifer Aniston to Friends ki TV actor hai!’ It is that small a game. These are small things which need to change," he explained.
To conclude, he added, "I feel it is a debate which is not going anywhere. It is not solving the purpose or touching it. We have been talking about nepotism and favoritism, where does it come from? It comes from the audience somewhere. If I am not accepted as much as a top-notch star, then why would someone put their money on me? It is as simple as that. We need to be better than what we are as people."
Jennifer Winget's bond with Karan Wahi is one of a kind. The two are best of friends and are often seen having a gala time together. They shared screen space 'Dill Mill Gaye' and bonded extremely well on the sets. They started off as co-actors, but gradually became besties, giving everyone 'best friend goals.' They are friends for a lifetime and share a warm bond. The two good-looking actors have loads of love and affection for each other, which they don't shy away from showing to the world.
Karan and Jenny often keep bombarding fans with Instagram lives and cute pictures of their fun-loving moments together. And today is just another day when their cute chemistry is blessing everyone's feed. However, the day is special as Karan is celebrating his birthday today (June 9, 2020).

Well, the two cannot meet and celebrate the day owing to the social distancing rules, however, this does not stop Jenny from expressing her love and admiration for the handsome hunk.
On this special day, the Beyhadh 2 actress took to her Instagram handle to share an awe-inspiring goofy picture from one of their previous photoshoots and penned down a heartwarming letter for her 'true friend' Karan. In the picture, Jennifer was dressed in a wine red colored cocktail gown, while Karan opted for a black suited-up suave avatar. The two looked absolutely stylish and ravishing, giving us fashion inspiration for our next reception party with bae. While this polished and graceful style made our jaws drop, their goofy expressions won our hearts.
With this beautiful throwback picture, Jenny wrote a heartfelt note for Karan on his birthday sending him loads of hugs and love. In a sweet and emotional letter to her friend Wahi, Jennifer wrote, 'Dear Wahinder, wishing you the happiest birthday my dost. We have come a long way and gosh, there is still a long way to go (give or take 6 years?). What to do? You are, after all, one of the nicest, funniest, and truest friends who have stuck by me through the years.
