In a video that surfaced online, Karan is seen talking about being mesmerised during the shooting when he is interrupted by co-star Reem Sameer Shaikh who notices the azaan sounding somewhere close. Karan then said, “Should we just pause for a bit. Azaan, azaan ke liye? Do minute bus (for the azaan, just two minutes).” They were then seen staying silent for some time.
The video also showed Karan touching his chest when someone told him off stage that it was a great gesture to pause when he heard the azaan. The post was flooded with comments praising the actor.
One of the comments read, “If everyone respect each others religion World will be very peaceful.” Another one wrote, “As a Hindu hoke Muslim culture ki respect karna baut badi baat hoti hai jitna acha sakal and handsome hai utna hi dil ka saaf hai banda god bless u may your all dream fulfil.”
Ishq Me Ghayal also features Gashmeer Mahajani and Reem Shaikh. The promo of the show Karan essays the role of a werewolf named Veer. The show premieres on Colors TV on February 13.
