EXCLUSIVE: Parth Samthaan opens up on being typecast; says, ‘In the romance genre, I felt that it was kind of repetitive for me’
Parth Samthaan is clearly the audience’s most loved or adored TV star. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Parth, who is gearing up for his big web debut with Ekta Kapoor’s Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu, opened up about exploring new things and if he ever felt being typecast.
So far we have only seen Parth play goody two shoes and romantic characters on the small screen, so we asked him if he ever felt being typecast. Sharing his views, the actor said, “You know people see innocence on my face so what to do? I can’t help it. Talking about being typecast, to an extent yes. In the romance genre, I felt that it was kind of repetitive for me. But also it’s not like I have been doing this for 10-15 years then even I would get fed up. So I wouldn’t say I am fed up with it because I have recently explored it. It’s just been five years for me where I have explored this romantic or chocolate boy image or the ideal husband-boyfriend type roles. It’s just that I am making sure that I am exploring romance as much as I can till the point where I reach saturation level and then I will be like you know what, ‘Bas karo ab mujhe kuch aur dedo’.”

The Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor further added, “For now, I am enjoying all the emotions I am getting even this character (in Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu). In fact, mujhe thoda sa bura bhi laga ki is character mein mujhe kahin aisa romantic scene nahi mila. So I was like ‘Kuch toh khalipan lag raha hai.’ You know the kind of stuff you have been doing for a couple of years and now suddenly whatever the project that you are doing doesn’t even have that one romantic scene as it is a journey of a boy. So kahin bhi break-up, romantic ya dard wala zone nahi aaya.”
In his web series debut Mai Hero Boll Raha Hu, the handsome actor will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar.
