Riding high on the climbing TRPs of her widely watched TV serial Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Ekta Ravi Kapoor is all set to cast a fresh face portraying the iconic character of Mr Bajaj, earlier essayed by actor Ronit Roy. As the search for the new cast member begins, Ekta took to her Instagram handle to share a clip of Mr Bajaj and Prerna, essayed by Ronit and Shweta Tiwari respectively, where the two hot leads can be seen dancing to a romantic number.
While Shweta donned a typical red dress, Ronit was dressed in an all black suit as they grooved on the dance floor. Ekta captioned the video as, “The time has come ! To say bye to @ronitboseroy as d iconic mr bajaj ! N d search for d new one@begins! I have cast ( n not ‘ casted’As someone told me) Ronit in many roles but this remains our most iconic one together @iam_ejf @the_parthsamthaan @realhinakhan @poojabanerjeee @subhavi all have been perfect as anurag Prerna komo Nivi .. willl bajaj match up( hmmmm)” (sic).
Kasautii Zindagii Kay began on September 2018 and has won hearts of the audience. It has also topped the TRP charts, thanks to the fight between Prerna and Komolika for Anurag Basu. The craze over the characters Prerna and Komolika has become so huge that a toy manufacturer has now come out with the dolls inspired by these characters. Dolls are inspired by Komolika (played by Hina Khan), Prerna (played by Erica Fernandes) and Anurag’s sister (played by Pooja Banerjee). The dolls are now a hit in the market and it came into the notice of Ekta Kapoor.
