With his successful stint in music, Karan Singh Grover proved that he is an artist exploring different avenues to express himself. When not before the camera, the multifaceted actor’s favourite pastime is painting.
Karan, who recently celebrated his birthday in Goa, is looking at assembling his paintings for an exhibition. The talented actor’s wife, Bipasha Basu happened to chance upon one of his paintings and extremely impressed with it, she nudged him to pursue his talent.
Karan says, “Since last year, professionally, I have had more avenues to pursue. Being an artist doesn’t limit me to one aspect. I am lucky that I’m inclined towards the performing arts, and creating art and music. I had dabbled in art and music earlier, but never looked at it from a professional point of view. Sometimes, you need a push to realise your potential. One day, Bipasha saw my painting, and said, ‘It’s really nice. Why don’t you focus on it? Not many people can do this.’ It made sense and gave me the right kind of encouragement.”
Adds Karan, “I am putting a lot of time into art, painting and music. I have a lot of paintings ready, and hopefully, we will exhibit them soon. I have been writing songs and a few songs are ready too, and they should soon be on their way.”
