We have all seen Karan in different roles—that of a filmmaker, producer and as a talk show host. But what’s surprising is to see him as an actor, and that too in a negative shade. Yes! Karan will be seen as Kaizad Khambata, who is a Parsi media mogul in the film. The moustachioed look of Karan came as a pleasant shocker when the first look of the film was released.
