Karanvir Bohra played the role of Viraj Dobriyal, a psychotic husband in in Saubhagyavati Bhava
TV actor Karanvir Bohra and Sriti Jha were paired together in Dil Se Di Dua… Saubhagyavati Bhava (Trishula Productions) on Life OK (2011). The show also featured popular actor Harshad Chopda in a lead role and was a big hit in its time.
The show is based on the lives of rich buisness tycoon Viraj Dobriyal (Karanvir Bohra) who marries a simple, middle-class girl Janhvi (Sriti Jha) but ends up becoming very possessive and over-protective about her. Jahnvi soon discovers that Viraj is over-possessive and abusive when she faces domestic abuse. The show gets into a new twist when Raghav (Harshad Chopda) enters Janhvi’s life and things turn the other way.
With the coronavirus lockdown across the country, many shoots have been put on hold. This has also led to many channels airing yesteryear favourite shows back on the televisions.
As per reports, after iconic shows like Ramayan, Dekh Bhai Dekh, fans will now be treated to the re-telecast of Saubhagyavati Bhava on new channel Shemaroo TV.
Recently, in an interview with a leading web portal, the actor spoke about his character and how difficult it was Sriti Jha and him to perform the scenes involving domestic violence and abuse.
Talking about hi character, he said he “hates such kind of people” when it comes to real-life who abuse their wives. He also revealed that although he garnered a lot of praise and accolades for his role in Saubhagyavati Bhava, Karanvir Bohra used to feel bad about playing such a role. However, people loved to hate Viraj Dobriyal. They couldn’t stop hating him but they loved watching him. There were small kids who loved Viraj just for his psychosis, not for the wife-beater he was.
When asked about playing scenes with his co-star Sriti Jha (aka Janvi) that involved domestic abuse, he shared that I am totally against domestic violence and yes it used to take a toll on me in real life because the acting was very heavy. It had heavy dialogues and emotionally and physically we had to be very invested. For Sriti and me, it was very disturbing. We would actually take breaks in between, go back to our rooms, relax and come back. It used to take me a lot of time to get back in and out of the role.
Being excited about the show being re-telecast on Shemaroo TV, he said “wish Shemaroo TV all the best and I know this show on Shemaroo TV is going to rock because it’s a great show, people still talk about it, people still talk about my character of Viraj. Wherever I go, people talk about Viraj and Jhanvi’s love so it will always be remembered. It’s been a long time since it aired on TV, so I am glad that Shemaroo TV picked it up and it’s a perfect time for it to be showcased”.
