After Erica Fernandes and Hina Khan bagging the roles of Prerna and Komolika respectively in the Kasauti Zindagi Kay reboot, Kaisi Ye Yaarian actor Parth Samthaan has joined the cast of the remake of the 2000s romantic saga as Anurag Basu, according to Mumbai Mirror.
Erica is the only cast member who has been officially confirmed and has shot for an announcement video. Parth too with shoot with Erica for another video that will introduce them as the leads of the show.
“Parth was finalised on Friday, despite stiff competition from other contenders,” a source told Mumbai Mirror.
The names of Kushal Tandon, Shaheer Sheikh and Ssharad Malhotra were doing the rounds for the past few weeks.
Hina Khan has confirmed that she has been approached to play the iconic role and has met Ekta Kapoor regarding the same, but is yet to sign on the dotted line.
“I won’t say it’s not happening, but I suggest let’s wait for the official announcement. Yes, I did go to meet Ekta and somehow people started to speculate, and it came to a point where they even confirmed that I’ve been roped in for the show, whereas I’m yet to sign anything. I mean you don’t know what talks we exchanged in a room and how it works, so let the makers make the final announcement,” she told Hindustan Times.
Hina said she will play Komolika in her own way and in the reboot Komolika will not twirl her hair. “No, that’s not going to be there and if at all it’s going to happen, it is definitely going to be different than what you saw earlier. You see it’s a reboot version, so it can’t be the same, she said.
The new version of the show will start airing from August on Star Plus.
