EXCLUSIVE: Parth Samthaan gets emotional about his father’s demise: Wanted him to wake up to see the new house
Parth Samthaan lost his father almost two years ago, on April 19, 2019. The actor shared a strong bond with his late father and is still reeling over the pain of his loss. Parth Samthaan was shooting for his show Kasuatii Zindagii Kay when his father fell severely ill in their hometown, Pune. Parth immediately rushed to Pune, but his father had breathed his last before he could meet him for one last time.
As Parth gears up for his ‘big’ OTT project, Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu, he got emotional remembering his father. In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble, Parth Samthaan opened up about how he is dealing with his father’s loss and how things have changed since he left. Parth also shared how his late father would have reacted to his ‘anti-hero’ avatar in Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu.
“My family does not belong to this industry. For them, their son becoming secure, safe, prosperous and successful is very much important than reaching different heights, Parth expressed. Then the actor went on to reveal the most heartbreaking moment of his life. While Parth wished to see his father smiling as he bought his first house, he bid goodbye to the world, leaving a void.
“So, I remember when I bought my first house, that’s the time my father, unfortunately, passed away, and that was very difficult. For me, that was my whole request for him to wake up so that he could see the house and everything. But, unfortunately, it did not happen,” an emotional Parth shared.

Sharing how his late father would have reacted to his role in Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu, Parth said, “Right now, I would say wherever he is, watching me, he would be really glad to see me in a different avatar. In fact, he would like it because it is more of a men’s zone, and every father would like that ‘kuch tune bhai jaisa kiya hai yaa mardon jaisa kiya hai, etc.’ Yes, he would be really excited to watch.”
While Parth’s father is sadly not around to pat his back, but his mother and family are standing by him like his ‘pillar of support.’ Parth shared, “My mom watched it, she is very proud and happy. In fact, even she said that I cannot relate you to that guy, it looks completely different. My entire family have watched it, and they have a plan of 25 people watching it together on April 20th in Pune. So, they have a sort of screening plan, it is lovely and I’m really excited about it.”
