MTV Fanaah is not an adaptation of The Vampire Diaries: Karan Kundra
His piercing gaze can send shivers down your spine. He is intense yet attractive. He is dangerous yet sexy. He has an air of mystery about him that inclines you to dig deep and unveil the dark truth he hides. The only exception being, he isn’t human. He thrives on human blood. He is the ‘cold one’.
The dynamic and super sexy Karan Kundra is all set to make a comeback in fictional series with the iconic youth brand MTV’s supernatural series MTV Fanaah: An Impossible Love Story. After rising to fame with two seasons of the popular show Kitni Mohabbat Hai on NdTV Imagine, the actor was also a part of shows like Sony Entertainment Television’s Bayttaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai, reality show Zara Nachke Dikhaa and hosted the popular youth crime show Gumraah on Channel V.
In a heart-to-heart conversation with us, the good looking hunk gets talking about his newest venture MTV Fanaah (BBC and Lost Boy).
Be it Edward Cullen, Damon Salvatore or Stefan Salvatore. Vampires or the ‘cold’ ones, as we refer to them have a mysterious appeal we just don’t seem to get enough of. Karan Kundra who plays a charming vampire in the popular series doesn’t seem to give out much.
“I would just say that I am playing Vivaan in MTV Fanaah who is a vampire. I don’t want to give away much about the character. You will see who Vivaan is as the story unfolds.”
Vampires, werewolves and humans. A love triangle. Ring a bell? Well the much talked about MTV Fanaah has been speculated to be an adaptation of popular US sitcom The Vampire Diaries.
We decided to clear the air.
“People have even compared MTV Fanaah to Aahat (laughs). I am kidding. But no. It is not an adaptation of The Vampire Diaries at all. This is a complete Indian series in the supernatural genre. Neither is it inspired nor is it an adaptation. It caters to the Indian audience and is a youth oriented show”, says a determined Karan.
Love triangles, hatred, and jealousy. We have seen it all. What then is the USP of MTV Fanaah?
The popular actor excerpts, “I think MTV Fanaah being a youth oriented show will appeal to them in a b
etter way as compared to other fiction shows. Today, the youth want something fast paced and out of the box. Fanaah is mystic and fascinating but at the same time also showcases real, intense and beautiful characters. Their emotions, the hatred, the anguish and the love- everything is relatable. So I think that is what makes MTV Fanaah different.”
MTV Fannah has been packaged in an absolutely delightful manner and is sure to glue viewers to their TV sets.
Having worked in long running traditional shows, what is the major difference working in MTV Fanaah?
“The structure, working as well as the story-telling is very different. The different shades of each character have been unfolded in an intriguing manner. It is a finite series and will not stretch beyond its need. Today there are hardly any shows that have recall value. Shows that we still remember include Nukkad, Dekh Bhai Dekh, Hum Log etc which even though were telecast years ago, are fresh in terms of its content, presentation and connection with the viewers. With MTV Fanaah, we aim to achieve a level like that and bring in change. MTV Fanaah has been conceptualized and picked up from everyday life and has supernatural elements to it”, said the talented actor.
That sounds very impressive!
So tune it to watch the very charming and sexy Vampire go blood thirsty on the all new supernatural series MTV Fanaah which starts from 21 July 2014 from Monday to Friday only on MTV.
We wishes you all the very best Karan!
