There are some shows in the history of Indian television which are embossed in gold, reinstating its importance and evergreen relevance in the minds and hearts of audiences.
One such serial from Ekta Kapoor’s golden ‘K’ series saga of hits is Kasautii Zindagii Kay.
Kasautii hit airwaves in the year 2001 on Star Plus and went on to become a rage in the country. Its actors enjoyed super stardom. The show’s intriguing twists & turns and well-knit characters etched a niche of its own, drawing a cult status.
Be it the romantic bonding of Anurag (Cezanne Khan) and Prerna (Shweta Tiwari) or the viciousness of Komolika (Urvashi Dholakia), or the power packed demeanor of Rishab Bajaj (Ronit Roy), Kasautii’s casting line-up was nothing short of being legendary. The theme music by Priya Bhattacharya and Babul Supriyo became country’s love anthem, being hummed across length & breadth of this country and beyond.
Now, given Star Plus’ slipping prominence in the fiction space (with most of its recent attempts mis-firing), the creative bosses have decided to ride on the popularity of its yesteryear show, Kasautii, in hope to re-live the euphoric experience.
Our sources have informed that Ekta is working on season 2 of Kasautii and the project has been given wheels which move fast.
Cuts in a source: “The new series will retain the characters, of course the actors will be new. The flavor and feel would also be mostly same.”
So when will it begin to air? We have been informed that it’s one of the flagbearer shows with which Star Plus intends to return to its reigning position, thus ensuring & enabling fast-track execution of plan.
Here, we would like to observe that availability of content back in time was less, thus ensuring lesser competition. In today’s time, can Kasautii cut through the content clutter and once again make an impact?
Well, with Ekta… anything is possible.
We texted Ekta to seek a confirmation but she did not revert.
Gaurav Banerjee from Star Plus too did not reply to our query till the time of putting the article to bed.
Are you guys excited to watch Kasautii season 2? Who should play the iconic Prerna and Anurag? Should Urvashi return as Komolika?
Well, we will soon update the space with more info. Stay hooked.
