TV actor Paras Kalnawat has been in the news for his sudden and controversial exit from Rupali Ganguly‘s popular show Anupamaa. He signed Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10 which apparently was looked at as a breach of contract, which led to his termination. Paras is now being replaced by his friend Sagar Parekh who will now play the role of Samar Shah in Anupamaa.
Talking about feeling the pressure and being nervous, Sagar told TOI, “Anupamaa is a popular show and Samar’s character is important because he is the only dutiful son and support system of Anupama in the show. I am feeling a lot of pressure and a bit nervous too because Paras who is a friend in real life, has played it so well. Entering an existing show is always a task. Also, I am new to the entire team. But I am excited and looking forward to breaking the ice with my co-actors.”
He added, “I have shot with Rupali madam and she has helped me a lot on the set. I did not get time to watch the show earlier, but now I have watched Samar’s role closely. My family watches the show, so they also keep telling me abut the character and how he has many shades to play. Of course, I don’t have to do the same thing and I will bring my own abilities and talent to the role.”
Sagar has been part of shows like Balika Vadhu 2, Tera Yaar Hoon Main, Rajaa Betaa, and Internet Wala Love, will be next seen in the fourth season of the popular web series Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan. He has also done Babbar Ka Tabbar for ZEE5 for both the seasons.
Meanwhile, Paras has been making some shocking statements about the makers of Anupamaa after his exit. He said he choose Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa since he wanted to explore a better side of him. He thinks there was nothing left for him in Anupamaa because his track has not been there since last one year now. He said that he has just been standing next to the other characters in the show. So, he wanted to come out of it.
