According to the reports by Indian Express, a source told the daily, "Hina has mostly been finalised. The financial contract and the final creatives are being locked with her. As for Kushal, the channel has liked his look test and things will be taken ahead with him. Ekta is personally keeping a tab on all the developments, as the show is very important to her. She will announce the final cast mostly by end of the month."
Upon coming across these reports, actor Kushal Tandon took to his Twitter handle to address the news saying, "Hina Khan and Kushal Tandon to join Erica Fernandes in Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot? who are these reliable sources." While Kushal brushed off the rumours about being one of the leading characters Anurag Basu on the show, Kishwer Merchant went ahead and spoke about it, too.

She is expected to sign on the dotted line soon." Ekta Kapoor took to her Twitter handle to talk about choosing the right antagonist and said,
