It was not too long ago when the rumour mill was rife with speculations about Karan Patel’s exit from acclaimed TV show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. While his fans – especially girls – fancied his character as Raman Bhalla, they were rather displeased with the news that was making the rounds. Fast forward a couple of months and it turns out that the reports were far from true and Karan never quit the show in the first place. In fact, he took a brief hiatus and is back with a bang for the next season. Karan confirmed that he was on a break to participate in Khataron Ke Khiladi and put all initial rumours to rest.
Speaking to one of the leading publications, Times of India, Karan revealed, “I don’t know why people speculated that I quit the show. I was just away from it for a while because I was busy with something else.” He added that Yeh Hai Mohabbatein has given him a lot in life and will always hold a special place in his heart. “This show will always be an integral part of my career and life,” stated Karan.
Besides Karan’s alleged exit, the grapevine earlier suggested that the show would come to a close in December. Speaking about the same, Karan denied the reports once again. He said, “I don’t think so. Though we have been playing these characters for long, people’s love and admiration for us haven’t dipped. It means that I am doing something right. Playing Raman Bhalla will always be a matter of pride for me. If a few think that YHM has run its course, they need to recheck their facts with those who think it should go on.” On the personal front, Karan tied the knot with now-wife Ankita Bhargava in a lavish wedding ceremony on May 3, 2015. As per reports, their marriage was an arranged one and Karan's co-star Aly Goni made it happen. Going stronger as ever, Karan revealed he loves to spend some family time and the pair is supposedly expecting their first baby together.
