Ekta Kapoor created a huge buzz when she announced that she will be bringing the epic love saga ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ back to everyone’s television screens after 17 years. This love story of Anurag (Cezanne Khan) and Prerna (Shweta Tiwari) was a big hit in earlier days and is also one of the iconic shows made by Ekta Kapoor. Ever since she declared about the reboot, speculations about who’ll step into the shoes of the characters have been rife. Recently, Erica Fernandes has been roped in to play the lead character, Prerna. She also shot the teaser of the show. Angad Bedi, Mohit Raina and Shaheer Sheikh are reportedly being considered for the role of Anurag.
Well, among all these iconic characters, there is someone whose role is the most interesting one. Yes, we are talking about television’s iconic vamp, Komolika, who was originally played by Urvashi Dholakia. After Reyhna Malhotra, Madhurima Tuli’s name was doing the rounds for essaying the role. However, Ekta dismissed all these rumours on social media saying that she always had only one choice for this role. She also admitted that casting this character would be the most difficult challenge, as it’s hard to find a replacement for Urvashi Dholakia, who made the character popular.
She had posted, “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, Bombay Times now has it that Hina Khan is in talks with the makers to play the epic character of Komolika in the reboot. “Talks have reached an advanced stage and the makers are keen on roping in Hina for the part. She is expected to sign on the dotted line soon,” an insider revealed to the daily.
The show will be Hina Khan’s comeback to the fiction genre after two years. She was television’s favourite bahu as ‘Akshara’ in Ye Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. After quitting daily soaps, she tried her hands at reality shows like Big Boss and Khatron Ke Khiladi.
