I remember watching Kasautii Zindagii Kay as a kid and hating a particular character from Ekta Kapoor’s daily soap. There are no brownie points to guess that every 90’s kid disliked the vamp of the show, Komolika. She was really vicious, man! Urvashi Dholakia essayed the role to the T so much that even today whenever the signature tune plays, we always remember her face. After Ekta recently announced that the show was making a comeback with new actors, Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes essaying the role of Anurag Basu and Prerna Sharma, I was excited to know who would be playing the role of Komolika. The suspense is finally over, as Urvashi has revealed that Hina Khan has stepped in to essay the role, reported Spotboye.
In an interview, the actress said,
Ekta (Kapoor) put her trust in me 18 years ago, the same she is doing now on Hina. Ekta has an eye for detail. Ekta has an eye for performers. Like she extracted what she wanted from me, I am sure she will extract it from Hina too. The baton has been passed and I wish Hina ‘Good Luck’ in all honesty.
The show went on the floor yesterday and it was every bit amazing. While initial reports suggested that Hina was in talks for the role, names of other television actresses were also making rounds. Now that Urvashi has finally let the cat out of the box, I cannot wait to see what the new Komolika will be up to.
