Mr. Bajaj has finally begun shooting for Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. It is Karan Patel who will be playing Mr. Bajaj after Karan Singh Grover left. However, Karan Patel recently in a chat with Pinkvilla revealed that he was also approached for Naagin 5. He said, “I was approached. Yes, but then Ekta decided that let’s not waste him here, as she was considering me for Mr Bajaj. Ek taraf Bajaj aur dusri taraf dasega toh kaise lagega and that’s when she decided to not do it.” Ekta Kapoor’s Naagin 5 also has been the most talked about show. Fans are eagerly waiting for the new season and want to know who would play the female and the male lead this time. Karan Patel’s name had been taken earlier who might be a part of Naagin 5.
Earlier, in an interview with Pinkvilla, the actor revealed that he’s never met Parth Samthaan or Erica Fernandes, who are acting in the show. He said, “I have never met them. Never even interacted with them. We have never crossed paths. I must have seen them around near the studio, but we never interacted much. In fact, I don’t know anyone on the set. For me, it will be like going to a new batch after a vacation.” Talking about his first reaction when he was offered the show, he said, “When I was approached, I was like Mr Bajaj is an iconic and challenging character. Earlier, Ronit Roy did it and then Karan did a good job. So, before saying yes I deliberated if I could shoulder the responsibility and then I took a day or two and then decided to give it a try.”
