After it was reported that Parth Samthaan aka Anurag Basu of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, is leaving the show, buzz is that the leading lady Erica Fernandes is also planning to quit. While Parth has already given a notice to Ekta Kapoor’s production house and will shoot till September 10-11, not much is known about the last day of our beloved Prerna.
For the uninitiated, Parth had tested positive for coronavirus last month. The shooting of the show was stalled for a few days while Parth was in self-quarantine after getting diagnosed. It’s being reported that Parth, who resumed the shoot last week, is calling it quits due to the shift in focus in the storyline to Prerna and Mr Bajaj, played by Karan Patel. He also wants to focus on his health and the other projects he has his hands on.
Meanwhile, several reports suggest that Erica is planning to leave for better prospects. However, there is no official confirmation about their exit. The actress shot from home for a little while and got back on set a couple of days ago as she thought the show was suffering. She had also moved out of her family house. If reports are to be believed, Erica doesn’t want to take any risks as her father has had four heart attacks and her mother has a history of TB.
Amidst all the speculations, rumour mills have been abuzz with reports of Yeh Hain Mohabbatein actor Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya replacing Erica in the show. However, she took to her Instagram handle to clear the air.
In one of her Insta stories, Divyanka wrote, “DTD as Prerna in KZK? IT’S A RUMOUR! (Just clearing the air for those who care)”.
So, that’s one thing sorted right?
Parth and Erica have been entertaining the viewers with their portrayal of Anurag and Prerna in Kasautii and the news of them quitting the show and surely left their fans disappointed. There are reports that Ekta Kapoor is trying to persuade Parth to continue his journey but the actor has wished to opt out. The production house, in the meantime, has started considering actors who can step into Parth’s shoes.
The exit of Parth and Erica from the show will definitely impact the popularity of the show. What do you think?
