Kausatii Zindagii Kay turns 18: Urvashi Dholakia, Ekta Kapoor hit major nostalgia with throwback videos
Actor Urvashi Dholakia, who shot to fame as the iconic villain Komolika on Kasautii Zindagii Kay, is celebrating 18 years of the popular show. The actor shared a throwback video showing her grand entry on the show in a blue saree and trademark bindi.
She captioned the post, “18 years of Kausatii Zindagii Kay! The show which changed the way viewers saw Indian Television, gave them their most loved show and probably their most memorable vamp, Komolika. What it gave me was a decade full of love, recognization, and character that became synonymous with my name and me. It shaped me, changed me, taught me and most importantly thank you to each one of you, to @balajitelefilmslimited , @ektaravikapoor and @shobha9168 especially... Komolika became what she did because of you. Forever humble and grateful to god #komolika #lifechanging #18years #18yearsofkasautiizindagiikay.”
Urvashi recently participated on the dance reality show Nach Baliye with her ex boyfriend Anuj Sachdeva. The two were eliminated but returned as wild card entries. Pooja Bannerjee, who plays Nivedita Basu in the Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot, also participated in the dance reality show but opted out due to severe injuries. She reacted to the post saying, “Love love love this... And youuu.”
Producer Ekta Kapoor also changed a promo of the show featuring lead actors Shweta Tiwari and Cezanne Khan. The show also featured Ronit Roy and Hiten Tejwani in pivotal roles. Celebrating the achievement, Ekta wrote, “18 years ago I launched two shows on d same day oct 29 th! Both busted d rating charts ! One on SONY #kutumb n one on star #kasautiizindagiikay ! Thanku audience teams Channels ! Always grateful credit: @balajitelefilmslimited...

Ronit, who played Mr Bajaj on the show, commented on the post, “Thank you @ektaravikapoor for having me in this role. Mr. Bajaj was not only a game changer but also a life changer for me. Owe you forever .” Karan Singh Grover, who stepped into Ronit’s shoes in the 2018 reboot, reacted, “Woah!! Awesomeness!!”
