Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 finally has a new face for Mr. Bajaj. After the news came out that Karan Singh Grover is exiting from the show many on the internet wondered who will replace Karan on the show. Now actor Karan Patel has revealed that he is all set to play the role of Mr. Bajaj once the show resumes shooting. Karan Patel last starred in Ekta Kapoor's show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.
Speaking to Times of India Karan said, "Mr Bajaj is an iconic character and it has lived on in people’s minds for years. So, it’s a matter of honour to take it ahead from where 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 (his character in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein) had become over a period of six years." Another report also revealed that Sharad Kelkar and Gaurav Chopraa were other actors who were also considered for the role.
In the original Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor, Ronit Roy essayed the role of Mr. Bajaj. In the recent remake of Kasautii Zindagii Kay Karan Singh Grover took up the mantle.
In another interview with Hindustan Times Karan Patel urged his fans to take care of stray animals around them. He said, "Many people felt that dogs and cats might be spreading the coronavirus hence people weren’t feeding them or worse, abandoning their pets. But later, reports revealed that this wasn’t the case and it was a huge relief. I have opened a small shed outside my bungalow in Andheri, where I provide food and water for them. These days people are not stepping out, so the strays aren’t getting even the little food they used to get earlier. I make sure that they get three to four meals. I have been donating to an animal shelter religiously as they are doing a wonderful job of taking care of animals in other areas in Mumbai.”
