Hav­ing tasted suc­cess with Kaisi Yeh Yaari­aan (KYY) on a youth chan­nel, Parth Samthaan is cur­rently en­joy­ing the fruits of his labour in his new on­go­ing TV drama. The re­boot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay, where Parth is play­ing the lead, has found favour with the au­di­ences and he couldn’t be hap­pier. He says, “It feels good when your work is ap­pre­ci­ated. When we started pro­mot­ing the show in Au­gust, peo­ple had a lot of ex­pec­ta­tions, as the ear­lier show had be­come a brand. So, it was tough for every­one on the show to live up to the ex­pec­ta­tions. Thank­fully, the re­boot is a hit, and peo­ple are lov­ing the char­ac­ters and the story. How­ever, there were many who have seen me play a stylish dude on KYY, and didn’t like me in the sober and sim­ple look in my cur­rent show. New au­di­ences, who dis­cov­ered me in the show, have loved me as I am. I am get­ting a lot of love from new and old au­di­ences.”

With fans from his pre­vi­ous show and new au­di­ences from the lat­est one, Parth says he is feel­ing “al­most like a new­comer”. He says, “I don’t have ma­ture au­di­ences, who are ad­mir­ing me. It is a big­ger deal for me as while the teenagers al­ready knew me, a huge sec­tion of the main­stream au­di­ence didn’t know of me. To make a mark with them has been a chal­lenge and I am glad that they have ac­cepted me.”
