Parth Samthaan who rose to fame as Anurag Basu in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 has decided to maintain a distance from the small screen for some time. No harsh feelings, the actor has justified that he is in no mood to get back to TV as he is busy exploring other platforms. After the popular TV show Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, the actor tried his hands at music videos, web series and Bollywood as well. In the conversation with ETimes the actor shared how his life has been after the popular TV show wrapped up.
On exploring other aspects of entertainment business, he said, “Right now, I am very happy exploring various platforms. At least for now, I am not in the frame of mind to go back to the world of television.” Along with impressing the audience with his acting chops, he has also impressed his fans with his fit physique on the social media platform. According to Parth everyone should treat fitness as part of their healthy lifestyle, the actor also feels he wants to better himself.
“Fitness is part of a healthy lifestyle not just for me, but everyone. I see a lot of people getting into it to have a fit body. I am very serious about my fitness-not because I want to look better than others with an attractive body, but because I just want to be a better version of my own self. I am not competing with anyone to look good or more handsome than others. I love to work out and fitness has been a focal point in my life. Along with workouts, I also follow a strict diet chart,” says Parth.
All set to turn a year older on March 11, the actor has already begun receiving gifts and cakes from his fans. But the actor has made a special request for his fans, he said, “Birthday gifts and cakes have already started pouring in. As I am following a strict diet and cannot eat the cakes, I have requested my fans not to send any more cakes. In fact, I want them to distribute these cakes among poor children.” ALSO READ: Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2: Parth Samthaan Finally BREAKS His Silence On Opting Out Of The Show; ‘I Reach A Saturation Point Very Easily’
The actor also shared that he will be celebrating his 30th birthday in Goa along with a close group of friends. “Since we are still struggling with COVID-19 and Maharashtra is witnessing a surge in the cases, I am planning a Goa trip with my folks. Along with my friends, I want to chill, relax and celebrate. Staying safe and healthy is more important,” said the actor.
Speaking about his recent trip to Pune to meet his mother, he shared, “Recently, I went to Pune to meet my mom and got to know that all the eateries and restaurants are being shut at night. It’s better to take all precautions while celebrating.” ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 14’s Vikas Gupta Reveals Parth Samthaan, Priyank Sharma And Vikas Khoker’s Accusation Are Lies; Asserts To Take Legal Action Against Them
The actor who has been in the industry for a decade now, feels overwhelmed when someone comes and tells him, his/her grandparents are also fond of his work. Believing in everything takes its time to happen, he said, “Everything happens slowly and gradually. When I did my first show, I was very new in the entertainment industry and things were really different. But after doing Kasautii, a lot of things changed. My friends, relatives, people in my housing society- everybody knew that I’m the one playing Anurag Basu. And it really makes me feel good.”
Adding further he said, “What’s more fascinating is when people come and tell me, ‘My nani is a big fan of yours’ or ‘My dadi loves watching the show because of you’. That makes me happier because it means that people belonging to the older generation also like my work and appreciate me as an actor. That’s the best compliment for me.” ALSO READ: Parth Samthaan And Khushali Kumar INTERVIEW: Duo Reveals Their Pehla Pyaar, Pehla Gham And More- EXCLUSIVE
