Television heartthrob Parth Samthaan, who shot to fame with character Manik Malhotra in the much-celebrated TV series Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan along with Niti Taylor, has a huge fan following and the reason is so obvious. Now, that MaNan has returned once again with a brand new season of Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan, the actor, who reprised his role as Manik in the third installment of Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan (KYY3), is back to wo o his fans and this time, not as Monster Manik but as every girl’s dream boyfriend. The hit series, which premiered on May 15, is back as web series and airs on Voot, every Tuesday and Thursday.
Parth feels a sense of gratitude towards his fans as the makers decided to bring back Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan for the third time, only for its fans. Also, we are highly excited that our favourite jodi of Manik Malhotra (played by Parth) and Nandini Murthy (played by Niti Taylor) will be returning once again. Sharing his excitement, Parth, in an exclusive interview with India.com, said, “I’m happy and excited to be back. Though it was good taking a break from TV for a while, working with my squad once again after two long years just makes it better.”
Talking about his experience about (at first) working on a TV show and now a web series, the actor mentioned, “how the experience is too different.” He added, “Working in a web series actually gives you space and freedom you need, unlike in TV. Also, we have the liberty to choose one of for our desired location for the shoot and there are no deadlines either.” While we wonder, if Parth is planning onto work in more web series, then the answer is no.
The actor further added, “No, TV is off my radar for now. In fact, it was off my radar since KYY2. Actually, I am not really keen on doing TV, but only focusing on my film, which I want to complete this year itself. Talking about it, he said, “Yes, I am working on a film and it will release by this year end, or by latest, the film will be postponed to January (2019). It’s a very good film and I am qute excited for it. We have started prepping for the film; it is currently in its pre-production for now. We will go on floors in August.”
Speaking of Bollywood, the actor further added, “I would like to move slowly; take one project at a time. Unlike TV, while working on a project, you can’t bounce back if something goes wrong. So, one needs to be very careful when they choose a film; right from the script to a good team to the marketing strategy, everything needs to be looked at. I would say, fortunately, everything has been falling into place. Also, I am being very positive about this project and hoping for the best with my fingers crossed.”
While we wonder, if there is any possibility whether or not Parth will take up a Tollywood project, if offered, he has clearly said, “That’s never going to happen as I feel, Tollywood is out of my league and I don’t think I fit there. Not only, I don’t see myself being any good enough for a Tollywood film, but also, I am pretty sure about what I want and Bollywood will be my only focus, now and always.

Looks like the great chemistry that Parth and Niti share on screen is nothing but a reflection of the real-life equation. Speaking of the great camaraderie they share off-screen, Parth said, “It was great working with Niti once again. This time, we were very comfortable with each other, not that previously we weren’t, of course, we were. But this time, we took our scenes more lightly and were more on the fun zone, as in we laughed and talked a lot between the scenes, thoroughly enjoying what we were doing.”
Since this time, the makers have roped in a new bunch of people, we won’t see Krissann Barretto, Veebha Anand or Ayaz Ahmed. Talking about the new cast, Parth said, “I was quite surprised to see that the new bunch of people are so talented. They are really great performers so much so that I also learned one or two things from them. I am sure, you’ll enjoy the show as a lot of pretty faces and talented people are coming along.” Parth also thanked his fans for all the love and support they have been showing towards the show and said, “Keep showering your blessings and continue loving us.” Watch this space for further updates.
