Karan’s publicist confirmed the news and released a statement on behalf of the actor. Karan Patel Opens Up On Rumours of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein Going Off Air! Here’s What the Hunk Has To Say!
The statement read, “Yes Karan Patel is going to be moving on to participating in the show Khatron Ke Khiladi.
