Actor Karan Wahi is a successful actor and host in showbiz, but not many know that he was a passionate cricketer who was in the Under 19 League and played with ace cricketer Shikhar Dhawan. Now, he wishes that he hadn’t left the sport.

“I played for under 19 leagues professionally, I also went to play for DCA (Delhi & District Cricket Association) but I couldn’t break through. It’s been a great and fond memory and I will carry it through life, and I do regret quitting because I always wanted to become a cricketer. Sometimes I regret it because I left at a time around 2003 when cricket was not an entertainment thing. I played with friends like Shikhar Dhawan who is now playing for IPL and Indian cricket team and I feel happy seeing him grow,” says Karan.

However, Karan is now content with what he’s doing. “I wouldn’t say that I would have reached heights in cricket because we don’t know what would have happened. So I think at the end of the day, it’s about the talent. If I say I would have made it, that would be egoistic on my part but I feel if I would have played cricket, if things had been different then,” says Karan who’s known for his television shows such as Remix, Dill Mill Gaye and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge.
