Days after Paras Kalnawat bid goodbye to Anupamaa, Sagar Parekh has stepped in to take the place of the former. Sagar will be seen on the show as Samar, son to Rupali Ganguly’s Anupama.

Taking to his official Instagram handle, Sagar posted a video from the sets of the show recently which also featured his onscreen mother Rupali. The former captioned the post “Anupama and Samar, I promise i am not gonna let anyone down..!”

Check out the video below:

In conversation with ETimes, Sagar had spoken of how nervous he was to be a part of a show like Anupamaa, which has been airing for almost 2 years. The actor added that although it would be a challenge, landing a role on the show was a ‘dream come true’ for him. Sagar has also had roles in the shows Balika Vadhu 2, Internet Wala Love, Tera Yaar Hoon Main and Fanaa:Ishq Main Marjawaan.

Paras had essayed the role of Samar on Anupamaa since the start of the show. The actor had been terminated from the show after he signed on to be a part of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa for its newest season. In conversation with News18, Paras had opened up about the events surrounding his termination, saying that it was unexpected and that the makers had not even spoken to him about it before taking the decision. He had called his termination a ‘PR tactic’. The actor added that after his termination only Nidhi Shah, Sudhanshu Pandey, Alpana Buch and Madalsha Sharma had reached out to him.

The actor had also shared a post on his social media, talking about how unhappy he had been on the show and calling it a ‘nightmare’ to work on the same. Saying he had mixed feelings about leaving the show, Paras had added that he was grateful to have been a part of Anupamaa.
