The character was originally played by Urvashi Dholakia, who was appreciated for the same. Hina understands the shades of the character well.

She added, “Komolika is not a typical vamp, she has a lot of shades to her which unfold as the story progresses which enticed me to play the character. Viewers will see me in an entirely new avatar and I always wanted to try something new to push myself as an actor”.
Apart from Hina as Komolika, Kasautii Zindagii Kay also features Erica Fernades as Prerna Sharma and Parth Samthaan as Anurag Basu.
