Actor Karan is excited these days. After all, his first national ad campaign for a scooter, in which he has shared screenspace with Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, has just hit televisions screen around the country.
The advertisement has been directed by Pradeep Sarkar (of Parineeta fame).
Says Karan, "I've been offered several ad films before I took up this one, but I wasn't willing to take them up. But this one was irresistible because I got to work with Kareena Kapoor and director Pradeep Sarkar at the same time. The ad makers, who were looking for an actor who was popular in all the four south Indian languages, thought I would be apt for the role. Moreover, cameraman Nutty (Natraj) convinced me that it was too good an opportunity to actually let go."
