Paras Kalnawat’s exit from ‘Anupamaa’ (Star Plus) has disappointed many as his portrayal of Samar struck a chord with the audience. While the character remains, it will now be played by Sagar Parekh who is nervous about entering the show as the beloved character.
Parekh revealed, “Anupamaa is a popular show and Samar’s character is important because he is the only dutiful son and support system of Anupama in the show. I am feeling a lot of pressure and a bit nervous too because Paras who is a friend in real life, has played it so well. Entering an existing show is always a task. Also, I am new to the entire team. But I am excited and looking forward to breaking the ice with my co-actors. I have shot with Rupali madam and she has helped me a lot on the set. I did not get time to watch the show earlier, but now I have watched Samar’s role closely. My family watches the show, so they also keep telling me about the character and how he has many shades to play. Of course, I don’t have to do the same thing and I will bring my own abilities and talent to the role,” as told to ETimes.
‘Anupamaa’ stars Rupali Ganguly as the titular lead.
