Star Plus serial Kasauti Zindagi Ki latest news: Erica Fernandes to play female lead role in the show
Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming serial Kasauti Zindagi Ki starring Erica Fernandes and Parth Samthaan in lead roles, has already created a lot of buzz much before its premiere!!
Beautiful and talented actress Erica Fernandes, who is popular for her role of a self-respecting doctor, Sonakshi Bose in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, will be seen essaying the role of Prerna in Kasautii Zindagii Kay. She will be seen romancing heartthrob Parth Samthaan who is know for his role in MTV’s Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan.
Recently in an interview with a leading web portal, Erica spoke about her character Prerna.
When asked if the actress had watched the original series ie.e Kasauti 1 she said “Yes I did, but I was a kid back then. My main recollection of the old Kasautii was the hero (Cezanne Khan) with the dupatta (promo). But yes, I did binge watch a lot after being selected, which brought back a flood of memories regarding the story and characters/actors”.
Talking about playing her new show having a Bong connection yet again, she said Well, it seems to stay with me (smiles). I was Bong, in Kuch Rang, while I am getting married to one, in Kasautii. I told Parth about all the regional stuff I picked up during my above Sony outing.
Talking about her character Prerna and how different its is from her previous role as Sonakshi Bose in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, she shared “Prerna is A fun-loving, free-spirited girl, who always stands for the right. For her, nothing is above her family, and she will do what it takes to protect their interests. The characters of Sonakshi and Prerna are poles apart, and this is what I was looking for, not wanting to get typecast in one particular mould. I am not taking too much tension; I prefer putting in my 100%”.
When asked about grabbing the lead role in Kasauti 2, she said “Every TV actor wants to work with Balaji. When I first signed on the dotted line, I was not sure of the project, but still went ahead, trusting Ekta mam’s vision. Later, when I came to know that it was Kasautii and STAR Plus, what more could I ask for? I am really amazed at the amount of work she pulls off, not only paying personal attention to all her TV shows, but also to movies and web series. Does she ever sleep?”.
Kasautii Zindagii Kay will air on Star Plus from 25th September 2018, every Monday-Friday at 8.00 PM.
