Ekta Kapoor's iconic daily soaps like 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi', 'Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki and 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay' revamped Indian television back in the day. Her shows have given us stars like Vidya Balan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Prachi Desai, Ronit Roy among others who have paved their way to the big screen. On February 15, 2018, Ekta Kapoor took to Twitter hinting that she is set to revamp one of her TV dramas. Much to the delight of fans, it was later revealed that she is set to storm the silver screen with a reboot of her much-loved daily soap ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ which ran for 9 years in the early 2000s. While a small teaser released earlier unveiled Erica Fernandes as the female lead, Ekta had stated that Shah Rukh Khan will be the one introducing the actors playing the popular jodi Anurag and Prerna. And as promised, the teaser of the show with a short monologue by Shah Rukh Khan has been dropped on social media.
Ekta Kapoor took to Instagram to share the video and said, “ANURAG N PRERNA ..!they were so different no one cud imagine them with each other not even them themselves... destiny laughed fate smiled and said ‘ u both will always b with each other ....no not LIVE with each other but LIVE FOR each other! Introducing Anurag PLAYED BY @the_parthsamthaan n Prerna PLAYED BY @iam_ejf two karmically connected lovers ...introduced by the KING OF ROMANCE.”
While Erica Fernandes will be seen as Prerna earlier played by Shweta Tiwari, Parth Samthaan will portray the role of Anurag played by Cezzane Khan and later Hiten Tejwani in the first edition of the show.
It was reported that Shweta Tiwari had revealed it was her daughter Palak who was originally approached for the lead role in the revamped version of the show which made the actress a household name. Ekta Kapoor, however, refuted the rumours stating that she wasn’t aware of Shweta’s daughter being considered for the role. While Ekta has found her new Komolika in Hina Khan as fans wait with bated breath for the actress to be introduced in her on-screen avatar.
‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ will air from September 25 on Star Plus.
