When Ekta Kapoor found Parth Samthaan, her hunt for perfect Anurag Basu finally stopped. The announcements were made that ’Kasautii Zindagii Kay Reboot’ is going to be launched by Ekta Kapoor soon. The role of Prerna would be played by Erica Fernandes, while Hina Khan would be playing the iconic role of Kamolika. With an expected launch time of next month, the show will be on the floors soon.
According to the sources, “Ekta and the team had a tough time finding the perfect Anurag. A lot of actors were in contention but the rebooted show required a young face. After numerous look tests and auditions, the team finally zeroed on Parth. The actor was finalized last night and an official announcement will happen soon. While Erica has already shot for the first teaser, a promo with Hina and Parth will also be released soon.”
We cannot forget that Parth faced Ekta’s irk publically a few years back. It was because of his dispute with Vikas Gupta which was soon reconciled. Later, he got welcomed by her in her gang as well.
Ekta even confirmed some of the rumors about the star cast on twitter. She tweeted, “None of d names floating can be d lead for kasauti as all r way past their prime !!! It’s a reboot of a ‘ young( mid twenties) love story’.” It was followed by another tweet which read, “The lead Anurag cannot b over thirty playing twenty four na?”
