Mohsin Khan is one of the most sought after actors today, having currently been a part of the popular show ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ since 2016.
On his birthday, BizAsiaLive.com looks at why the audiences love him in this role.
Khan brings a unique happiness to the role of Karthik in he hugely successful show. He manages to perfect the happy scenes with such perfection that the audiences are drawn to the way he is bowled over when in love, manages to laugh in the most awkward situations and also how he uplifts his family.
His chemistry with his co-stars
Khan’s on-screen bonds with the cast of the show come across as strong but the strength is in fact in the comfort he shows when depicting his character and the various relationships he has. Whether he’s being a love to Naira, a son to Manish Goenka or even a grandson to Dadi, Khan brings our every emotion within those relationships with a lot of ease.
It’s not usually a known thing that a man shows weakness when he’s a main character but where he does in a daily show, he’s often brought back up by the characters around him. Khan, as Karthik, is often seen showing how vulnerable he is – when he’s unsure about what to do, when he’s out of his depth or even when he’s scared. The expressions he shows in the actions his character takes makes him loveable and relatable.
As a daily show character, actors have a lot of opportunities to showcase different attires within the scenes or occasions that are shown through their on-screen lives. While Khan seems to be comfortable in western and eastern outfits, it’s the latter that he really stands out in. The Sherwanis he’s worn throughout his time playing the character have been varied but they really suit him and make him the perfect “dulha”.
It would be wrong not to mention how the character of Karthik shows love in the show. His love story with Naira is definitely something endearing but the way he expresses his fondness and understanding towards his cousins, his in-laws, his parents and also his brother when he was alive, brings out the best in the character. Yes, sometimes he loses his way but he always eventually finds his way back to love.
BizAsiaLive.com would like to wish Mohsin Khan a very happy birthday.
