In a recent interview, Karan revealed he faced rejection for being ‘too good-looking’ during the initial days of his career. The actor told News18, “I have never been told to ‘correct’ something but what has always been a barrier for me is ‘you look too good for the part’. That has been a real challenge that I have been facing for a very long time. I have been told, ‘You are a good-looking guy so that’s the problem’ or they tell me ‘you are a fit guy, don’t be so fit’.”

There has to be some sort of imperfection in you to look real on screen’. I think I did feel low, but at the same time, I did have people who believed in me. That’s what you need.”

Dino Morea: Dino Morea has been a part of films like Raaz, Gunaah, Rakht, Insaaf: The Justice and more. Earlier, in an interview, Dino revealed that he gets rejected because of his ‘good looks’. Hindustan Times quoted him saying, “It takes guts to see me differently. Some casting directors come up with the excuse and they don’t see me differently. I just get the feedback from some that you are good looking. I find it very bizarre, what’s my look got to do with casting me in a certain character. Just cast me. I can change my look. People just never saw me beyond my looks. Being good looking sometimes works against you in Bollywood.”
