Kasautii Zindagi Kii remains one of the most loved shows by Ekta Kapoor. Fans have been desperately waiting for the iconic show to be back on their screens. However, with the increasing coronavirus cases, Karan Singh Grover aka Mr. Bajaj won’t be appearing in the show. Reports of many television stars came forward since the news broke out. Seasoned actors like Sharad Kelkar, Gaurav Chopra, Hiten Tejwani, and Karan Patel was also approached for the part. Meanwhile, reports from Times Of India suggests that the production’s search for their very own Mr. Bajaj has ended with Karan Patel.
The Yeh Hai Mohabbatein fame had also been part of Kasautii Zindagii Kay. In an interview with the
Times Of India, Karan spoke about reprising the role of Mr. Bajaj.
He said, “Mr. Bajaj is an iconic character and it has lived on in people’s minds for years. So, it’s a matter of honor to take it ahead from were Ronit Roy and Karan Singh Grover left and add my nuances to it. I intend to make this character as iconic and loved as Mr. Bhalla (from ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’) had become over a period of six years.”
When asked about comparisons between both actors, he said, “I don’t fear comparisons, as that’s bound to happen. I have my own approach and understanding when I take up a character. Fear creeps in when you expect failures. In my case, I have always followed my instinct and my focus is on how well I can perform my part. As an artist, I don’t really prep for a role. I am spontaneous and that’s my forte. I will do the same with my new character.”
It will indeed be interesting to see how Karan Patel brings out the menace and charm of Mr. Bajaj on screen.
