Karan Oberoi recently walked out of the Taloja Jail after being accused of rape and extortion by a 34-year-old woman. The complainant has been arrested for staging an attack on herself to turn the case in her favour. The Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahi actor was behind the bars for almost a month and in an interview with Spotboye.com, the actor recalled the horrific time he spent in the jail along with 92 inmates. He said, ''92 Qaidis in one cell sharing one toilet, which we had to wash"!

In an earlier interview with TOI, Karan had said, ''I was put in a circular barrack on the first floor, occupied by 92 inmates. The gates of the barracks are kept open for a few hours in the morning, so that you can walk around and stretch in the passage. You are not allowed to step out of the barrack and can’t even see sunlight. I spent my time reading books and writing one, too. In fact, I am in the process of finishing a book on my experience inside the jail.''

Karan was dating his television serial Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin co-star Mona Singh but called it quits 13 years ago. In an interview, Karan revealed why he had to let go his relationship with her. ‘’I wanted to be with her. She is a wonderful girl and a great artiste. We were too young and different as people. Mona is very social, always bubbly but at that time marriage was not something she was looking at. Her career was going great guns and she wanted to focus on that,’’ he had said.

On the work front, Karan Oberoi started his TV journey with Mahesh Bhatt's Swabhimaan, where he played Bobby and went on to star in shows like Saaya and Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi. He was also a member of A Band of Boys, which was formed in 2001.
