A report in a tabloid recently announced that actor Hina Khan might just leave TV show Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Ever since the news came out, Hina’s fans on the social media have been expressing bitter-sweet reactions. While most are happy that their Komolika is allegedly quitting a show in which she is not the lead heroine, some are disappointed as they will not be able to see her on screen.
When entertainment portal Spotboye asked Hina about her decision, she hinted that she might just never return to the show after her break. She was quoted by the site saying, “It’s true that I will not be seen on the show post-March. But, the only reason is my prior commitment to films.”
When asked about her re-entry, she said, “Depends I might or I might not.” Hina added, “The production wanted me to stay, it’s me who wants to go and the reason is only films. They understood and have given me a break. You never know I might come back.”
In a new video, however, Hina has said that she is not quitting the show but she doesn’t know whether she will return to it or not. Here’s here video:
Now, the news has been discussed widely on Twitter. Here are some interesting fan reactions:
Hina is debuting in Bollywood with a film in which she is playing the character of a Kashmiri girl. Veteran actress Farida Jalal is also an important part of the film. For her comeback on TV after Bigg Boss, the actor chose to appear as Komolika, the famous vamp, on Kasautii Zindagii Kay. However, the current track hasn’t really been able to grip the audience.
Earlier, before entering the show, an excited Hina had talked about stepping into Urvashi Dholakia’s shoes for playing Komolika and how it was a big responsibility. She was quoted by Times of India saying, “Playing Komolika is an extremely thrilling experience. However, it also brings a huge responsibility of living it up to the expectations of the viewers. Komolika became a household name who is reminisced even today. She is strongly instilled in the hearts and minds of the viewers. I will try to retain the essence of the old character, but with a new spin.”
