Anupamaa fans were certainly in for a shock when it was announced that Paras Kalnawat, aka Samar Shah, would be exiting from the show. The actor reportedly had been terminated after he had agreed to be a part of the celebrity dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, which makers alleged violated his contract. Paras recently opened up about his termination from Anupamaa, which he called a ‘PR tactic’.
In conversation with News18, the actor spoke of how there was a lot of politics involved, which viewers are unable to see on the forefront. Paras said that people who chose not to engage in politics will find it difficult to survive, saying he himself was a victim.
The actor said that he was completely caught by surprise when it came to the termination, which he said happened overnight. He said that no one informed or hinted it to him, but it had been circulated all over the news within minutes of him receiving the mail. “It was all a PR tactic”, he said.
Paras said that the issues for which he had been terminated could have seen sorted out if the makers had talked to him about it. But the producers did not even agree to meet him, said the actor.
On his co-stars’ reaction to the termination, Paras said that many of them had reached out after hearing the news. Nidhi Shah, Sudhanshu Pandey and Alpana Buch had called up Paras, while Madalsha Sharma and Alpana Buch had sent him a message. The actor had said that other than them, no one from the show had contacted him, including Rupali Ganguly.
On his official social media, Paras had shared a post about his exit from the show. In the post, the actor had spoken of how he would soon tell his side of the story, saying that he had been unhappy and it was a ‘nightmare’.
