Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor Parth Samthaan smoked cigarettes excessively to justify a character.

Method acting is not unheard of. Despite having a great cast and exotic locations, it is an actor's job to make the story believable and relatable. Thus, they left no stone unturned to put in their best and guide the audience to see them through the character. In doing so, they have to make a lot of adjustments, preparations and sometimes even sacrifices. Recently, Parth Samthaan experienced this as he is all set to make his digital debut soon. We can see Parth in a brand new look in a hard-hitting gangster story, titled, Mein Hero Bol Raha Hu. His character in the show is very different, for which he had to go through changes. 

A source revealed that the character Parth plays in the upcoming show Mein Hero Bol Raha Hu is a chain smoker. While the actor doesn't smoke, he started smoking to get into the skin of the character and bring it out naturally on the screen. Since his prep time, Parth began smoking cigarettes to get all the nuances right. Initially, he began with herbal cigarettes, however, in the show he'll be seen smoking heavy imported cigarettes. 
Parth revealed that he has never even held a cigarette in his life before. However, since the character demanded it, he started with herbal ones during his preparations. He later shifted to nicotine heavy cigarettes for the actual shooting process. Parth clarified that he does not wish to pick a cigarette stick up again in his life. He added that he is very happy to see the character shape well and more ecstatic that he has finally gotten back his no-smoking days.
Parth is currently playing the role of Anurag Basu in popular Star Plus show Kasautii Zindagi Kay. Fans are loving his chemistry with Prerna aka Erica Fernandes. Also, the show's interesting storyline and amazing plot twists have the viewers on the edge of their seats.
