Later, she got my voice in several shows including Roshni (2007-08), Woh Rahe Wali Mahal Ki (2007-09), Yeh Main Ghar Ghar Kheli (2009-12), Hum Aapke Hain In Lodge (2013) appeared. ), and Remarriage (2013) etc.

I can’t participate in reality shows. They get boring after some time. I did Nach Baliye only after much persuasion. And in between, I lost all interest and by the end of it, I was just going along. So, no reality show for me – forever. Anyway, I think all such shows are ultimately the same – same type of judging and same type of contestants, be it celebs or general public,”
In 2016, he played the role of a scientist Shantanu Kant in Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant opposite Ridhima Pandit.
In 2019, Grover starred in Star Plus’ Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum alongside Dipika Kakar as Dr. Played the role of Rohit Sippy.

Sharing his thoughts in an interview about his role in Udriyaan, Karan said,
Ravi and Sargun are not only dear friends but also very enterprising individuals. So as an actor, if you get an opportunity to collaborate with your friends and create something together, you should not let that opportunity slip by. I feel fortunate to be a part of his first show ‘Udaariyan’ and take this beautiful journey forward. When it comes to my role, Angad is a complex yet dynamic and fun character. I feel his presence in ‘Udriyaan’ will add a new layer to the plot of the show which will surely bring a dichotomy for the viewers to enjoy. I am grateful to COLORS for giving me this wonderful opportunity as this is my first show with them, and nothing could have been better.”
In an interview, when Karan was asked about his future prospects in films, he replied,
What is the need of doing films when you are getting such good work on TV? TV is giving me a lot of variety. On the other hand, films are undoubtedly a big medium, but I am not being offered anything interesting, so I am happy being a TV actor. The only thing I have missed is a complete comedy. But my current show is giving me that too, so no complaints. Thankfully, TV now has a much wider scope. You will no longer see the same saas-bahu stories on TV. There are so many variations that satisfy the actor in me.”
In 2015, Grover made his film debut with Wedding Pulav, where he played the role of Jay, Anushka Ranjan’s boyfriend.
In 2018, she did Vikram Bhatt’s web series Spotlight 2, which aired on VU. Grover said in an interview,
This web series gave me an opportunity to change my image as an actor. Till now I have never played a person who has seen so many emotional ups and downs throughout the show.”

He is a musician who reaches the pinnacle of success and then falls to a level where he becomes life-threatening under the influence of drugs.”

The audience was shown that this was a twist as per the natural progression of the track of the show, while it was a strategic move to remove Karan from the show. In an interview, Karan said,
I have been on ‘Sarathi’ from the very beginning. But I had to move on. My new show ‘Meri Awaaz Ko Mil Gayi Roshni’ didn’t give me much time for ‘Saarthi’. So I decided to leave it. I told its producer Asit Modi about my plight and he gratefully understood it. So, they decided to kill my character. I have given two months notice from March 10 to May 15, so that there is no rift between us.
Though everything was fine in Karan’s opinion, the show’s producer Asit Modi did not like Karan’s choice. Asit Modi said in an interview,
No one can tell me their priorities. I will not compromise on my story. If the story demands then Karan will have to return to the show. We can bring him back”
My story is strong and people will not stop watching the show just because Karan is no longer a part of the show. Actually the TRP of Charioteer is much higher than that of my voice…”
