Yesterday, we had reported that Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi actor Shaheer Sheikh has been roped in to play the male lead in Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming show Kasauti Zindagi Kay 2, which is returning to the small screen after a decade. While several names were floating around for the male and female lead, the latest reports suggest that Shaheer Sheikh will don the role of Anurag Basu in Ekta Kapoor’s celebrated love saga Kausauti Zindagii Kay’s remake.

Now, speculations are rife that Shaheer Sheikh’s co-star from Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, Erica Fernandes, has been approached to play the female lead. However, the actress, earlier in an interview, rubbished the rumours and told an online entertainment portal, “Oh no! that’s completely not true. Having said that, it’s great to know that Kasautii is making a comeback, as it was a really nice show. If I sign something, I would break the news myself. Until then, I am just going to travel around the globe and explore.”

While Sheikh and Fernandes’s chemistry was lauded in their last show, Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi, but the series was axed due to low TRPs. If the reports are anything to go by, let’s hope Ekta Kapoor is able to create magic once again with this much-adored couple.

Bringing back my most successful love saga that ran for 9 yrs! Again I’ll take my broken heart & make it into art! #NamesToBeAnnounced.”  Well, the makers are yet to make an official announcement about the final cast for Kausauti Zindagii Kay 2.
