Meanwhile, Karanvir Bohra was recently seen in Kangana Ranaut-hosted reality show Lock Upp where he talked about suffering a financial crisis and revealed he was in huge debt. He mentioned that from 2015 till now, whatever work he took up, it was only to return the money or pay back his debts.
On the show, Bohra said, “I am down in the worst debt of my life. Matlab main dhus chuka hoon, waisa waala sir bhi bahar nahi mera.. I at least have 3-4 cases on me for not paying money back. From 2015 to now, whatever work I take up is only to return the money or pay back my debts. Agar mein jagah koi aur hota toh he would have committed suicide. If it would have not been for Teejay, mom, dad and my kids, I don't know what I would have done. For me, this show is a lifeline."
