In the recent promo video of Lock Upp, Karanvir Bohra can be seen sharing his deepest secrets with Sara Khan, Geeta Phogat and Saisha Shinde. In the clip, we can see Karanvir getting emotional as he bared his heart out in front of other contestants. He revealed how he is not doing well in his career for the last 7 years and how he has been under debt. He even mentioned that he feels sorry for himself and his family. He said:

"I am down in the worst debt of my life (sic). Matlab main dhus chuka hoon, waisa waala sir bhi bahar nahi mera...I at least have 3-4 cases on me for not paying money back. From 2015 to now, whatever work I take up is only to return the money or pay back my debts. I feel so sorry for myself and for my family, what am I giving them. Agar meri jagah koi aur hota toh he would have committed suicide. If it would have not been for Teejay, mom, dad and my kids, I don't know what I would have done. For me this show is a lifeline."

In one of the other episodes, Karanvir had opened up about the time when his wife, Teejay had suffered from a miscarriage before their third daughter, Gia was born. Talking about the same, the actor had got emotional inside the Lock Upp. He had shared the incident and preached mental health. He could be heard saying:

"Before Gia we lost a baby during COVID. We were so scared to not tell anyone about it because we didn't want people to say 'Arre yaar ye kya hogaya, kaise hogaya, kyu hogaya'. Maybe to protect ourselves we didn't want to say. We had to lie to our own family, to our own relatives. When we talk about mental health issues, they come from home only. They start from home, because ghar waale kuch bolte hain, maybe they don't mean it, they speak out of concern. Her family does not know, my family does not know. At that point we felt we lost emotional well-being, mental health. Start from your own house mental health. It is ok to be a bipolar, transwoman or lose things in life, to be older. It is just ok to be alive."
