For the unversed, Urfi Javed and Paras Kalnawat were in a relationship and parted ways in 2017.
While speaking to India Forums Paras addressed the allegation of being possessive. He was quoted saying, “There should be some kind of aggression in me to retaliate. I don't carry any hard feelings for anyone. If I have a problem with someone, I would go up front and speak to that person rather than speaking anything bad about them. When I see people speaking about me I take it very calmly. I think to myself that if this person is finding happiness by saying all this about me, I'd rather find happiness in their happiness. All this does not affect me at all.”
Javed has been vocal about her break with Kalnawat and has also mentioned that it was her mistake to be in a relationship with him. Urfi was quoted saying while speaking to ETimes, "We were supposed to work together in a show, I guess Anupamaa only. He requested the creative director and everyone to not cast me in the show. Whenever there is even a slight chance of me being in the show, he would request the team to not cast me. Because apparently, his girlfriend, present or ex doesn't want us to work together." She added, “He tried to woo me again by having 3 tattoos of my name, but who does that after one has parted ways? Surely, I wasn't going back to him just for the tattoos. Even if he had tattoos of my name all over his body, I wouldn't have.”
However, as reported earlier, Paras Kalnawat will not be playing Samar in the daily soap as his contract has been terminated by the producer Rajan Shahi, who signed the upcoming reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10 which will air on a competitor channel Colors TV.
