Remember when Ekta Kapoor announced the reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay and we couldn't wait to find out who will play the role of Anurag, Prerna and Komolika? Ekta revealed Parth Samathaan and Erica Fernandes would play the lead pair, but she kept us guessing who would do justice to Urvashi Dholakia's performance as Komolika.
The minute she shared the news that Hina Khan has been approached for the role, netizens went into a frenzy. The actress has an immense following, thanks to her role as Akshara in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Later, she became an household name when she participated in Big Boss Season 11 and had a love-hate relationship with fellow contestant Shilpa Shinde.
We weren't really surprised when Komolika got the grandest entry in Kasautii Zindagii 2. Despite her blink and miss appearance on the show initially, she captivated her fans' hearts with her stylish avatar.
Once she became a regular on the show, the TRPs sky-rocketed. You know you're a fab performer if they hate you when you play an antagonist, right? Komolika received all that love in the form of hate and fans couldn't get enough of her. From getting Prerna's dad killed, causing a rift between Anurag and Prerna to marrying Anurag, Komolika redefined badassery on the show.
Fans were shocked to know she's quitting the show as the role is tailor-made for her. A source recently revealed that Hina wouldn't be a part of Kasautii from April onwards. Wondering why?
Well, Komo is in great demand. She has signed a film with horror filmmaker Vikram Bhatt. As per the reports, Hina will be seen in Vikram’s women-centric film. In order to commit time to the project, she decided to take a break from Kasautii Zindagii Kay. While the other actors of the cast have not yet been revealed, Hina will be the lead in the film.
But this isn't the only film in her kitty. Hina will also be seen in a film called Lines, which is based on the Kargil War, directed by Hussein Khan. The film also stars Farida Jalal and Rishi Bhutani. Hina shared a picture with Farida on her Instagram with the caption, "She’s not just a veteran star but also a creative powerhouse and Bollywood’s encyclopaedia. Oh but her sassy, sweet attitude keeps us entertained on the sets. Such a lifetime worth of experience and a complete privilege it is to work with dear Farida Ji."
We'll miss you as Komolika, but hey! We'll get to see you on the big screen!
