Television heartthrob Parth Samthaan has reportedly quit ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ to concentrate on film projects.
Samthaan who only recently returned to reprise the role of Anurag Basu after his coronavirus ordeal, is expected to opt of the show to focus on his health and other work, according to PinkVilla.
A source told the publication, “Parth wants to now direct his attention towards his health and the other projects he is in talks with. Ekta Kapoor has been trying to persuade Parth into retainment but the actor has expressed his wish to opt out. The production, in the meantime, has already started to consider actors to step in Parth’s shoes but are finding it difficult.”
Samthaan wouldn’t be the first actor to be replaced in the popular Ekta Kapoor series. Hina Khan who played Komolika left the show to work on other projects. The role was then carried forward by Aamna Sharif. Recently, Karan Patel stepped into the shoes of Mr Bajaj when Karan Singh Grover left the series.
BizAsiaLive.com contacted Samthaan for a comment but was awaiting a response at the time of filing this article.
