‘Pavitra Rishta’ actor Karan Veer Mehra on his divorce: I should never have got married
TV actor Karan Veer Mehra’s life has been full of ups and downs. He had an accident and also went through a divorce with his partner Devika who was his childhood sweetheart. Karan also became the victim of alcoholism, went to rehab and now he is back becoming a better person.
Recently, during an interview with Bombay Times, Karan spoke at length about his divorce. He said, “Once I came to Bombay and my career soared, I began to follow a very lavish lifestyle. The flipside of this early success was that I became reckless — reckless enough to take a serious step like marriage without any thought. I decided on marriage within a day and she also agreed, though we had fought just the previous evening! So, I believe that she was also equally reckless.”
Karan said that he shouldn’t have got married back then as it would have saved two lives from getting ruined. He feels that they were not made for each other. “A childhood friendship of 10 years and another eight of marriage could not withstand the blitz of the glamour world. As my career grew, she also chose to become a part of this charismatic world, and soon, we began to drift apart. I felt like I had begun to slip from her list of priorities. Consequently, our equations changed and I got linked to actresses, actors and creative producers, and it was the beginning of the end,” said Karan.
He said that he can take the plunge again, but if that doesn’t happen, he wants to have children. Towards the end, Karan said that he is close to someone special.
