Ekta Kapoor's iconic love story, Kasautii Zindagi Kay is being remade! The show that starred Shweta Tiwari, Cezzane Khan (later replaced by Hiten Tejwani), Urvashi Dolakia and Ronit Roy in the lead roles, was a big hit! The show ran for seven long years. Recently, Ekta Kapoor revealed that she met the Star Plus team and is about to announce a 'remake' of an old epic saga, which we assume to be KZK! The makers were busy finding right replacements for the iconic characters Prerna and Anurag.
It's confirmed that Erica Fernandes will be seen reprising Shweta Tiwari's role, Prerna.
Erica Starts Shooting
Recently, Erica was spotted shooting for the promo of the show and the pictures had gone viral on the social media. In one of the pictures, Erica was seen wearing black dress with red (long) dupatta, which reminded of the old poster of KZK that featured Shweta Tiwari!
Shaheer Sheikh Is Not Considered For Anurag’s Role!
On the other hand, the makers seem to be still finding the right replacement for Anurag's character. Earlier, it was said that Erica's co-actor, Shaheer Sheikh might be roped in for the show as he shares amazing chemistry with Erica. But, now it is being said that the actor is not considered as he has signed Mughal-e-Azam on Colors.
Angad Bedi & Mohit Raina Were Approached!
Recently, there were reports that Angad Bedi and Mohit Raina were considered for Anurag's role. Apparently, Ekta wants somebody who will match the traits of Anurag who is 'khadoos', workoholic and a man who is stuck between two women!
Barun Sobti Or Sharad Malhotra To Play Anurag’s Role!
But now, according to Spotboye report, Barun Sobti and Sharad Malhotra are being considered for Anurag's role! A source was quoted by the entertainment portal as saying, "Star Plus is keen that Barun comes on board whereas Ekta is considering Ssharad for the part."
Barun Sobti was last seen on Gul Khan's show, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 3. He will also be seen on Ekta Kapoor's web series, Dysfunctional Family, which also stars the Bollywood actor Kay Kay Menon.
On the other hand, Sharad is currently seen in Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki. There are reports that the show might go off air on soon! Since both are seen on Ekta's shows, there is equal chance for both the actors! Well, let's see who will bag Anurag's role!
