Karan Patel opens up about his comparisons with Karan Singh Grover for their role as Mr. Bajaj in Kasautii; Read on

Karan Patel, who rose to fame with Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, is returning to the small screen with Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Karan will be playing the role of Mr. Bajaj which was earlier played by Karan Singh Grover. As KSG decided to leave the show, Patel bagged the show and recently his first look has been released by the makers. Opening up about being compared with Karan Singh Grover, Patel said, "The way I look at it, comparison na ho toh takleef ki baat hai. If a comparison is being made, it means you are doing something right. If that was not the case, why would anyone even compare, right? Comparison is good because that means you are getting your job done."

 
As the number of cases of Covid-19 is on a rise in Mumbai, Karan says he feels scared to resume shooting. "Of course, it is scary. When I go for a shoot, I will be meeting a lot of people and god forbid anyone is exposed to the virus. But, other than that you always have to be cautious. Whether we have a small kid in the family or not, it is important to be cautious and take precautions for your family. The moment you come home, one must take a warm water bath and wash the clothes. Before anything else, just wash your hands. Your immunity must be strong but not everyone has the same thing, so we just need to be prepared, " he added.
 
Meanwhile, Kasautii's other actors including Erica Fernandes, Parth Samthaan, Pooja Bannerjee and Shubhaavi have resumed shooting for the show.
