Not a lot of actors manage to make a name for themselves in the television industry. The attention span of the people is short, and they are quick to forget someone who is not a regular in Bollywood. People even forgot ‘
’ when he did not appear on screen for a while, so it is definitely not hard for them to forget some television actor. However,
Karan Singh Grover
has managed to hold on despite it all. His fans are loyal beyond belief and despite being a part of several not very successful films like ‘
’ with his now wife Bipasha, he still has a few fans left.
1. He is not very serious about his work
When the actor was working for his show
, he did not keep up with the busy schedule. The success had gotten into his head and he would misbehave on the set and would frequently take leaves stating health issues, after which pictures would surface on the net showing him partying with his friends. So, the actor was shown the door by his producers.
2. His mother did not approve of Bipasha
Karan’s mother seems to think of her son as some sort of a superstar, who she believed even after a couple of divorces could do much better than Bipasha. She went to the extent of threatening to cut all ties with the actor if he married the actress. However, Karan nevertheless went ahead and married Bipasha.
3. Bipasha’s parents did not approve of him
It was not much of a surprise when long before he got his divorce, Karan wanted to get married to Bipasha. Bipasha’s parents however, did not approve of the match. Not only was Karan not half as successful as Bipasha, he was also divorced twice, and is known to have a roving eye, with a long history of unfaithfulness. However, Bipasha managed to convince her parents and the two got married.
4. His mother did not approve of Jennifer
The ‘superstar’s’ mother did not think Jennifer was capable enough to get married to his son either. She just did not think that Jennifer was worthy of him. So much so, that she did not even step into the couple’s apartment until they had separated and Jennifer had moved out.
5. He thinks marrying Jennifer was a mistake
It seems as though Karan’s mother is not the only one who did not like his second wife. The actor himself, who manages to stay in the news somehow or the other, found another way to resurface on the news by giving a controversial statement about his ex-wife. The actor said he made a mistake by marrying Jennifer, as not all relationships are to be taken to the next level and that they should not have rushed into things. Considering the speed with which he married Bipasha, he does not seem to have overcome his bad habit.
6. The Monkey Wedding
Soon after the first meeting on the sets of Alone, things started to heat up between Bipasha and Karan. People began to speculate when they saw their many pictures together, sometimes on vacation, sometimes on dates, but always together. Then, they announced their wedding, and called it a monkey wedding because that is what Bipasha calls Karan. Seems to be pretty apt too, as the actor does not seem to like being still. Even their honeymoon after the wedding was called Monkey moon and the actors went to Maldives for the same.
