EXCLUSIVE: Parth Samthaan FINALLY opens up on rumours of fallout with Ekta Kapoor post Kasautii exit
Parth Samthaan is clearly the audience’s most loved or adored TV star. The actor who is gearing up for his big web debut with Ekta Kapoor’s Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu, spoke about people’s perception around him, in a candid chat with us. Parth Samthaan also opened up about his decision to leave Kasautii Zindagi Kay for the first time and addressed rumours of fallout with Ekta Kapoor. In 2020, Parth Samthaan had stepped out of Kasautii Zindagii Kay after being a part of the show for almost 2 years. After a lot of speculations, it was announced that the producers have decided to pull the plug of the show in itself due to the development. This led to rumours of fallout between Ekta Kapoor and Parth Samthaan.
Addressing it, Parth revealed that there was no fallout and explained why he decided to quit Kasautii. “Unfortunately, the situation was such. It was me on that part where I couldn’t come out and work properly in the positive mind space because of whatever was happening. More than the physical torture that I had for COVID 19, but for me the mental torture was bad, I felt like I died, people were passing condolences, speedy recovery texts, and prayers, even though it was good or bad but you feel that why are you in that zone? So the situation was such that I had to step down,” Parth said.
He also revealed that the decision was not sudden but something which he felt was right for the moment. “It was not like a sudden reaction that happened. It wasn’t an all of a sudden decision I took because of COVID, it was never like that. It is just that when I taken Kasautii, I had decided to give 2 years of life to it, and then I will do something different. That was my plan. I went according to the plan and then COVID happened, so I felt like it was the right thing for me.”
Opening up on how Ekta Kapoor understood the situation, Parth revealed, “We had a very good 45 minutes conversation. She was explaining to me about the show but somewhere down the line, I told them that I need a break because I couldn’t deal with the situation. She understood my situation. So, overall it was a nice understanding, and apart from that, I liked the way she approached her web show than her TV show. She told me that Kasautii has nothing to do with Hero, it is a different property. She was very sweet. In fact, she told me that she wants me to grow as a character, and is waiting to see how people react to the character.”
