Actor Karan Singh Grover has spoken about his daughter Devi and how her health discouraged him from ‘going to work’ during the shooting of Fighter. Speaking with India Today, he shared how his wife-actor Bipasha Basu was a ‘lioness, a super strong person’. Last year, the couple shared that Devi was born with two holes in her heart and had to undergo surgery.

Karan talks about Devi’s health during Fighter shooting
Karan said, “(At the) beginning of every schedule, I felt like not going to work because it was very serious and to be away was very difficult. Also, I did not handle it very well. I was like water on the floor. I think it’s because of Bipasha that I got the strength to kind of go through that and still be here. I really felt like, for me, death would be easier than going through that.”
Karan praises Bipasha
He continued, “At one point, I remember when we were at the hospital, and we were supposed to give Devi to the doctors, I just couldn’t. I was like, ‘no’. It felt like I didn’t have any hands or legs or feet or face. My wife is a lioness, she’s a super strong person, but then as soon as she became a mother, she was a freaking God. She is something else. Also, thanks to all the surgeons.”
Karan and Bipasha became parents to Devi in 2022. During a chat with Neha Dhupia on Instagram Live last year, Bipasha had spoken about Devi. She had said, “I remember the third month, when we went for the scan, I pretty much did all the research, met surgeons, had been to hospitals, spoken to doctors, and I was kind of ready, Karan was not ready. I knew that she had to be okay and I knew that she will be okay. And she is okay now. But the tough decision was to get your child operated at the right place and at the right time.”
