New Delhi: Television actor Paras Kalnawat has been in news for a few days because of his exit from the show ‘Anupamaa’. The makers of the show terminated his contract after he signed the reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa on a rival channel. The actor, on the other hand, had said that he didn’t know the makers will have an issue with this as his screen time on the show was anyway very less in the last year.
In a recent interview, Paras hinted that all was not well on the sets of ‘Anupamma’. Calling his experience on the show ‘dark and shady’, he revealed that a senior actor spoke against him and he was shown in a bad light.
“My scenes were cut. I was put in a bad light; people started falsely gossiping about me that I had threatened them and spoken certain things about them. As I said, I had not done that. And If a senior is going to talk against you, the makers are going to believe the senior only,” he was quoted as saying by ETimes.
When asked if he is hinting toward Rupali Ganguly and what is his equation with her, Paras told ETimes that it’s not that the two did not get along, he still respects her and she still has a ‘little bit of love left’ for him.
Paras also revealed that none of the actors including Rupali Ganguly called him after his contract was terminated. He also stated that while he was on the show, he had started isolating himself.
“It was very dark and shady. I recall that once I was called by the production team that I should keep quiet about it. I was strictly told that I will never divulge it. Then I was asked if I had any proof and when I showed it to them, they made me delete those proofs. They said I should forget what wrong had been done to me. I let bygones be bygones, because I wanted to keep the show-politics away from me. I started isolating myself and in between the shots, I sat down in a corner to write shayris. Whatever happened here with me hasn’t happened ever with me anywhere,” he told ETimes.
Actor Sagar Parekh has now replaced Paras on the show. ‘Anupamaa’, starring Rupali Ganguly in the title role, is the number one show on television at present.
