Early LifeHe said, "I was so sure that I'd be a cricketer. But I injured myself during the U-19 trials and was extremely demotivated. I left cricket then, enrolled myself in a marketing course and joined my father's business. Since I was into workouts during that time, my father suggested that I get a portfolio made. That folio found its way to some casting directors and I got a call from them asking me to come to Mumbai for an audition. I randomly went even though I had no idea what the show was all about. All I knew was that I had auditioned for a character called Ranveer Sisodia. Unexpectedly, I got a call from them 10 days later, informing me that I was selected and had to go to Mumbai. My parents, who had never even allowed me for a night-out, sent me to Mumbai. I signed the contract without even knowing what it was all about. I just became an actor by default. As a child I was really scared of my mother as she was the Vice Principal of the school where I studied"
In Nach Baliye 6Television's cool hunk Karan Wahi who hosted Nach Baliye season 6 is on cloud nine as the actor cum host has performed with his dream girl Shilpa Shetty in the grand finale. He said, "I couldn't even get time to rehearse properly as I was busy with the shoot of my film. So I used to finish my shoot and then come for the Nach rehearsals. It was taxing but at the same time it was a good fun too. I had been asking Shilpaji to dance last year too but had to manage with her picture. This time, I am feeling lucky to shake a leg with her even if it's for few seconds. May be next year, we both are going to have a proper duet song."
Karan Wahi Indian Idol JuniorKaran Wahi has hosted the singing reality show Indian Idol Junior alongwith Mandira Bedi. His comic timing and the PJ's were the center of attraction of the show.

Girlfriend/MarriedKaran confesses to not being perfect at relationships. "I haven't dated too many girls. All my relationships have been very short lived. I'm a very bad boyfriend. I'm just too much into my friends. I'll choose my friends over my girlfriend nine out of ten times. I'm just doing too many things all the time, so I can't give my relationship the time it needs. Now at 27, you don't fall in love the way you used to fall in love at 21. Now I can't think of relationships, it is time to get married," he laughs.
