Interestingly, while elaborating his fan moment with Salman Khan, Karan said, "It was very awkward. I felt timid in front of him. I was playing the character of a badmaash college boy. But the minute Salman came on the set, I suddenly became a nerd. We spent 4-5 hours to shoot the ad." 

Praising Salman Khan, he added, "He is very fun-loving. It was tough for me as I shot the last sequence of Special Ops and wrapped up at seven in the morning. I drove all my way to South-Bombay for an 8 am shift. I could have said no to the ad because of time restriction but I think enjoyment of work is something that drives you to do such things."

He was further asked what genre he would prefer to share the screen space with Salman Khan, to which he replied:

"Any genre with Salman Khan will work. Swag is something that comes very natural to Salman Khan. He has got larger than life personality. It will be an honour for me to share the space with Salman Khan."

Later on, he also shared how he is spending his quarantine. He said, "I read two scripts. Most of the time during the first two weeks went into understanding the home chores. Our body takes time to understand the sudden pressure. Now, my body naturally understands and is comfortable to perform all the house chores. Half of my day is spent in household chores and during the other half, I chit-chat with my family. I am not a TV person. I call my friends. Life is simple, it's reading, watching a little bit here and there, spending time with the family. It actually comes down to what life should actually be - meaningful."
