Karanvir Bohra's first tryst with acting was as a child actor in his father's film ‘Teja', in which he portrayed the young Sanjay Dutt. From a very young age, Karanvir was interested in cinema and assisted his father in films under the guidance of the late director Bharat Rungacharey. In his teens, Karanvir learnt the ropes of film making under the dedicated administration of B.P.Singh, master of such thrillers as ‘CID’ and ‘Aahat.’

On the first day itself, Karanvir became Farah’s favourite, with her commenting that he was the best dancer in the show, and that he was ‘flawless’ onstage.
