Controversies• Once Shah Rukh Khan's vanity van collided with Karan Bohra's parked car, Shah Rukh Khan then requested him not to file a case.
• His controversial exit from the TV series 'Qubool Hai'; he stated the reason that he wasn’t convinced with the show taking a leap in Season 3. Since the role was not exciting enough and the TRP was low, Karanvir chose to quit. However, he maintains that if given an opportunity, he would love to work with the same cast and crew in the future.
• While hosting the Life OK Screen Awards show, Karanvir took Anupam Kher’s name wrong. Anupam Kher got really agitated by this and said, “Mera naam announce kardo phir, kahi galti se misprint nahi hua ho bhaisaab." The next time if there’s a mistake like this accept it honestly and don’t try and cover it.” This unexpected remark from Anupam Kher left Karan red faced.
