In his defence, Paras told ETimes, “I wanted to do both the shows together, Anupamaa and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. I was not aware that the channel or Rajan sir might have issues with the rival channel in a way that they won’t allow me to do Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa while being in Anupamaa.” The actor added that his growth had stopped in the show.

Debina Bonnerjee on getting trolled for her second pregnancy: Debina and Gurmeet Choudhary welcomed their first child, daughter Lianna, in April this year. And soon Debina announced her second pregnancy and welcomed a baby girl in November. The actress was trolled online. Talking about the trolling, she told Bollywood Bubble, “I kind of knew this is the way people would say, but so harsh, so rude, that I never assumed, like ‘why so soon’, ‘you won’t be able to give Lianaa the love she deserves’, ‘you did it too early’, ‘you were too much in a hurry’, ‘you were too desperate’, so all these kind of things I have heard. And when you hear so much, initially it just hits you bad and then, I am like I have developed a shell, in a sense not hiding me, I have developed a shell that it does not hit me anymore, it just hits the shell and goes.”
