The famous Indian sitcom Kasautii Zindagii Kay, that aired for seven long years from 2001-1008 is being remade with a completely new cast. Since the news about the remake was out, fans have been wanting to know who would play the three lead characters of the show in the second part. In the earlier show the character of Prerna, the female lead was played by television actor Sweta Tiwari, Anurag Basu, the male lead was played by Cézanne Khan and the most interesting character, the antagonist of the show Komolika was played by Urvashi Dholakia. Though she had a negative role, she gained a lot of fan following through her character and was loved by many. In the second part, the role of Prerna will be played by ex-Miss India, Erica Fernandes. She was recently seen shotting for the teaser and the pictures from the shoot are already breaking the internet.
There is still no confirmation on who would be playing Anurag’s role. It was reported that Shaheer Sheikh was approached for the role but it turned out that he has opted for the historical drama, Mughal-E-Azam, opposite Sonarika Bhadoria. There are now reports that either Barun Sobti or Ssharad Malhotra will be picked for the role. There is even no confirmation on who would play Komilika’s character. If reports are to be believed, Ishqbaaz’s Svetlana Kapoor aka Reyhana Malhotra has been approached to play the role. According to India Forums, Madhurima Tuli of Ek Mayavi Prem Gatha-Chandrakanta has been approached to play Komolika. Creator of the series Ekta Kapoor, shuts all reports by tweeted, “Even though there will b a reboot in her character … it’ll b a v difficult casting for this iconic antagonist! So first choice will b hopefully d last choice JAI MATA DI. So many sources claiming so many actors in this epic characters casting’ I have approached only one person n she is d ONLY CHOICE.” Well, this leaves one wondering who will finally be cast as the antagonist.
In the previous series of Kasautii Zindagii Kay, the story revolved around the lead couple Anurag and Prerna and their love. The duo was so much appreciated that they are still remembered as the happening television couple.
