Things had not been going easy for Karan Kundrra for a few months before he entered the Bigg Boss 15 house. The actor had a much public break up with actress Anusha Dandekar. A lot of people have found love inside the BB house, so it was natural for everyone to assume that Karan might too. And surprisingly, his and Tejasswi Prakash's growing proximity on Bigg Boss 15 has been a hot topic of discussion. He has even admitted to liking her.
But was he open to love before he entered the show?
Ahead of the show when Karan was quizzed by ETimes TV if he is open to finding love on the show, he said, “Before April (the post break-up phase), I was in a very different space. Back then, I thought ki yeh toh kabhi hoga nahi dobara, but I am in a much happier space now. I don’t think I will ever be the way I was but time heals all scars. I had put all the energy into my career. However, you never know what magic happens and I am hoping something does happen.”
But he added he doesn’t have energy to waste on "frivolous" things. “However, I am not ready for anything that’s frivolous. I don’t have the energy for it. I need to be sure that the other person is serious about it. Main yeh nahi bol raha ki log jhooth bolte hain but uss time par unhe yahi lagta hai. In that situation (inside the house), they think that it is love and this is it, but it could be just an attraction, which would subside when they get back to their normal life. One has to think on so many aspects.”
Karan also recalled his time when he was one of the mentors on Love School. He had then advised people that while they fall in love when they are on the show, they should remember that everything changes once they get back their life. He added, “This was my advice that I used to give to my contestants in Love School. I would tell them that at that point, those handful of people and that place seem to be their universe. Their emotions are high, including the feeling of anger and attraction. But what happens when they get their life and phone back? They change.” ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 15: Karan Kundrra’s Former Girlfriend Anusha Dandekar Pens A Cryptic Post After He Speaks About His Break Up On The Show
“So, abhi jo aapko lag raha hai na ki aapko pyaar ho gaya hai mujhse ya attraction hai mujhse ya kisi se bhi woh ho sakta hai because you are in a little world and your entire universe is about these five-six people. Having said that, we have seen beautiful love stories, including Yuvika Chaudhary and Prince Narula’s. I hope I can follow my own advice. I don’t want to break my heart again. I feel my tone is quite apprehensive, cautious, working on myself first before thinking about all these things.”
“I am absolutely single. I am focused and that’s why I have agreed to be a part of Bigg Boss. I have explored so much outside that it’s time for me to now explore inside. I won’t have my phone and won’t have to work. I will have time for introspection. I am going to judge myself before people outside judge me. I have an image of myself in good times and I want to know whether it stands the tough times as well. That’s what I want to do," Karan Kundrra added.
