Well, neither in the original Mahabharat nor in the other versions do we find the mention of Uruvi. If at all there is a mention of Karna’s wife then there is a mention of Vrushali and not Karna. Uruvi is nothing but a creative character produced in the mind of a writer Kavita Kane who wrote the novel Karna’s Wife: The Outcast’s Queen which in turn resulted in the ongoing TV series Karn Sangini on Star Plus starring Tejasswi Prakash in the titular role.
