While mostly, Star Plus show ‘Anupamaa’ makes through the headlines for the content of the show, this time around the show has managed to grab headlines because of the recent controversy. Paras Kalnawat who played the character of Samar in the show has been terminated by the makers on account of breaching the contract and signing a show with a rival channel. Paras apparently signed ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ for Colors before informing the makers of ‘Anupamaa’.

Rajan Shahi, producer of ‘Anupamaa’ (Directors’ Kut Productions) released a statement mentioning that they’ve terminated Paras from the show. Later, Paras also put out a few statements stating that he wasn’t happy with his character graph. He also stated that he hadn’t signed ‘Jhalak…’ when the news came out.

Paras has been going all out speaking his side of the story and defending himself from the allegations put on him. India Forums asked the handsome lad if he thinks that his career would adversely affect with this controversy, Paras with his contagious smile replied, “My career will definitely get affected by this. It will also affect my growth as well. Rajan Shahi is a very known and respectable producer. He is also a part of Producers committee and him calling me ‘unprofessional’ would affect how others perceive me and it had also resulted in my morale going down but I’m looking at the positive side. I believe ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ will do wonders for me and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for that”.

He added, “Had this incident not happened, Rajan sir and producer would’ve termed me as the most professional actor. Because they’ve complimented the same to me in front of the entire cast of the show. But now, hearing the exact opposite thing from the same producer will have a lot of questions being raised on me”.

Paras further also spoke at length about the politics on the sets of the show, senior actors being insecure of his growing fan-following, his scenes being chopped and a lot more.

shahsb_26 2 months ago Lol, sorry but if Female Lead of Rashmi Sharma show was replaced overnight, he was just one side character to assume it won't affect him. Remember Gopi Bahu's replacement?

But I am not commenting on his choice, but then he should stop cribbing. Anupamaa is now continued family drama and Jhalak may hold better prospective for him.

BeyondHorizon 2 months ago I stopped watching Anupama long ago. While it is nice to see Anupama move on in life with another person, her romance with Anuj is overrated. The Bengali show seemed nice and it was finite. So long as this show remains no. 1 in terms of TRP, Rajan Shahi will probably continue it till eternity. Who knows, it will beat YRKKLH too. Anupama should have ended on a high note rather than make it a dragfest. First Anagha left now Paras.

suresh555 2 months ago Anupama is a mess now and nothing to write home about lately with so many useless negativity. Actors like Paras attributed to a show like Anupama. A good script is useless without good actors and with a messy script of late, it's good actors that are getting the show going.

suresh555 2 months ago Rajan shahi is a useless producer and all his serials start out well only to be destroyed by him later. He is lucky to get great cast. He better learn before his popularity vanishes

Sshesha 2 months ago Rajan is a chameleon. He treats actors like machines - only using it but no maintenance. First, Hina, then Ritvik and now Paras... Ekta, Rashmi and Gul are somewhat better in this case. They respect their actors.
