The famous Indian sitcom Kasautii Zindagii Kay, that aired for seven long years from 2001-1008 is being remade with a completely new cast. It was earlier reported that Erica Fernandes, ex-Miss India will be playing the role of Prerna that was earlier played by TV star Shweta Tiwari. Erica recently shot for the teaser of the show and the pictures from the shoot are already breaking the internet. One must be wondering who is playing the role of Anurag Basu. It was reported that Shaheer Sheikh was approached for the role but it turns 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.
A source close to the team told SpotboyE, “Star Plus is keen that Barun comes on board whereas Ekta is considering Ssharad for the part.” When they contacted Barun, Ssharad and the creator Ekta Kapoor to confirm the same, it seemed like the three did not want to reveal anything as of yet and chose not to comment. Barun and Ssharad, the two television actors have earlier worked in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 3 and Kasam Teri Pyaar Ki respectively. Erica in her recent shoot for the series was spotted wearing a black dress and red dupatta and was all set to make the audience nostalgic. Another source told indianexpress.com, “Kasautii has always been special for Ekta and now that she is rebooting it, she is keeping a close watch on all developments. The teaser has been shot to officially announce the series and a complete promo will be released once the male lead is locked. The creatives are quite kicked about adapting the show in today’s time and the channel is also betting on the show to garner some ratings for it.”
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.
