- Horror Story as Neel (lead role), the movie did not make much of the profits.
- Mere Yaar Kaminey as Ketan (lead role), the movie was never released.
- Control Bhaji Control as Dicky (Supporting role), flop.
- Mubarakan as Manpreet (supporting role), successful movie.
- 1921 as Ayush Ashthana (lead role), yet to come results.
The latest movie, which he has signed as the lead role will be a huge test for him because the Vikram Bhatt produces it with a huge investment, the horror movie has Zarine Khan, who is much more popular than Karan and also he has cinema legend Anupam Kher in the movie.
