Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi, Erica Fernandes had stepped into the shoes of Shweta Tiwari’s character Prerna from the original Kasautii Zindagii Kay. The actress even shot for a promo video, and images of the same had surfaced on the internet.
However, there had been a lot of speculations about the actor portraying the role of Anurag on the show. Names like Erica’s Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi co-star Shaheer Sheikh, and Ssharad Malhotra had come up.
But today, the show’s maker Ekta Kapoor rubbished all these rumours with a tweet stating that an actor in his mid-twenties will be playing Anurag.
Now, according to a report, the actor who will be playing Anurag in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 is none other than Parth Samthaan, of the Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan fame.
A source associated with the show informed, “Parth was finalised on Friday, despite stiff competition from other contenders. While Erica has already shot an announcement video, he will soon join her in another video that will announce them as the leads of the show.”
The show is scheduled to air on Star Plus from August this year.
The original Kasautii Zindagii Kay revolved around the love story of Prerna Sharma and Anurag Basu, who could never become one due to several circumstances.
Prerna then got married off to a rich, but a much older businessman, Mr. Bajaj, while Anurag got married to Kamolika. Kamolika was the main villain on the show, and it was played by Urvashi Dholakia.>
