The actor's film, in which he plays a gay character, has been selected at Ohio University as a part of the syllabus and the actor has been invited as a guest lecturer to the university to speak about the film and his experience.

Karan says, "Awards and rewards are part of every good film, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where I can give back to the society. I am looking forward to learning something new at Ohio University.”

When asked why would he do a gay film being a part of Bollywood and Karan says, "Our industry is an expression of the society and I consider this film as a love story."

'Amen' happens to join films like 'Monsoon Wedding' and 'Lagaan' in the list of Indian films being used in the syllabus abroad, but what's unique about this film is that it takes on the topics of child molestation, LGBT, etc.

Mehra is seen playing the lead in 'Amen', which is inspired by activist Harish Iyer's true story who was also seen recently in Satyamev Jayate.

Besides 'Amen, Karan also has the romcom 'Badmashiyaan' releasing this month and another two films lined up for later this year.
