After weeks of speculations around who is playing Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay, actor Hina Khan and showrunner Ekta Kapoor have confirmed that Hina will be replaced by a new face.Ekta Kapoor tweeted about searching for a new ‘Komo’ and Hina was quick to send her best wishes for the search.
“New komo!!!?????? But whooooooooooo;)” Ekta tweeted and Hina responded with a sweet, “Best wishes,” and added a few clap emojis.
Reports suggest that Gauahar Khan and Karishma Tanna have auditioned for the negative role of Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay.
Speaking to Bombay Times in March, Hina had said: “I will be back on the show whenever I am required. In the earlier season too, the track would change and Komolika would take a break and come back. As of now, I won’t be seen post March.”
Ekta had also earlier claimed that Hina would not be replaced on the show. Hina had once shared a video where Ekta could be heard saying, “This is the only Komolika we have and this is the only Komolika who is staying.” Urvashi Dholakia played the iconic character in the original show.
