Post Karan’s exit from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Karan’s wife Nisha Rawal shared an emotional post of Facebook where she reminisces her old days with Karan and how he became nation’s one of the most loved son, Naitik.
She also shared that Karan made mistakes and was not there with her when she needed him, but him being indispensible in her life, she never let him go.
Nisha also shared about Karan’s ill health and how they together made the decision of him quitting the show finally.
Here is the post:
This is to the one person I have spent almost a decade with.
Today he writes the last page of a memorable chapter in his life called “YRKKH” that has given him an opportunity to write a book.
I am yet to meet a more enduring person than him. His sincerity, one-mindedness, persistence and hard work are the qualities that made me fall for him in the first place and much as he has grown as a person so have these qualities in him which have made him only a richer person in each way.
His is most loyal to his work. There have been times when I thought he went out of his way by sacrificing everything about his personal life, his health, his time, his family, his weekends and worshipped his work like there was no tomorrow.
Only passionate people like this have created history and now this historic show.
I have watched him suffer every single day and still silently say “Thank U” to God, the entire team and all his fans for helping him in his journey. He never lost faith.
In the times when just in the 2nd year of the show a lot of actors start using dupes and working for less hours, he has worked for painstakingly long hours.
A light was born but he made a star out of it, his work not just being limited to the hours he worked on the sets but also the interviews he had during his meals, the food on his plate that he kept on hold coz he didn’t want to deny requests to give a shot which cud very well wait for 20 mins, the naps he didnt take coz he was busy securing his future and directing his finances, the nights he didnt sleep coz he had to make appearances and then also attend his friends birthdays, the mornings that he woke up and went without his tiffin coz he didn’t want to disturb the house helps, the shoes he didn’t buy to save for his family, the important days he missed of his dear ones, the adjustments that he kept making in every single way of his life to an extent that his immunity has been compromised today. The guy is on immunotherapy shots. He developed HAH (High Altitude Headaches) & Back Spasms. His allergies have boomed & the doc asked him to take it easy or he would collapse n reach the ICU. That’s when we decided that it was enough. He had forgotten about himself so much he forgot about his own identity to an extent that he was taken for granted by everyone in his life but then we always take for granted the things that are most important to us just like the light of the sun, the oxygen in our breath, the thirst-quenching ability of water. He gave his all & we took his all. This guy was named “Karan” by his loving parents and today we have known him by the adorable character he has played not only on our tv screens but inside our hearts and minds long after the tv has been switched off, as the loving, virtuous and exemplary yet traditional ways of “Naitik Singhania” as a character.
Needless to say any further, I have been an integral part of his life, a living evidence of watching him so closely as a person, it hurts when people use insensitive words like “kicked out of the show”..
He has gone through such difficult times when he couldn’t be there for me physically, a time when I wanted to walk out coz I thought I wasn’t important. But he held me tight with one hand while himself hanging with the other from the edge of a cliff. He believed and looked at the silver lining on the sky even in times when he was enveloped in darkness, a darkness where I cudnt see him but he cud see everyone and everything that people around him tried doing, some trying to make sure he remained in the dark and some trying to pull him out.
He has made mistakes but he is human and he is mine and he is indispensable just like I made mistakes and I was indispensable to him. The bigger picture was the mistake of not being there for me coz he was there for all those fans who loved him day and night, made all those thoughtful collages and sent all those lovely messages to him that kept him going..That was his silver lining, the happiness on the face of the fans Now that I look back that was no mistake. It was love for his profession.
This is the beginning of a new chapter of his life & I shall help him write it. People who dearly love him are standing rock solid with hands held and will not let him fall. These shallow and ruthless words will only bounce back that wall and come around.
He is healing his wounds & resting now & he will be back recharged, unstoppable and rejuvenated than ever.
It’s high time we understand and interpret rightly his silence. Coz our interpretation is only a reflection of our own thoughts. Let’s show the world what we think of hardworking and dedicated people like my “Karan”.
I love u for being u.
