Parth Samthaan who is best known for his role of in Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan, has been finalised as the male lead in Ekta Kapoor’s reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay.
A source told an Indian news outlet, “Ekta and the team had a tough time finding the perfect Anurag. A lot of actors were in contention but the rebooted show required a young face. After numerous look tests and auditions, the team finally zeroed on Parth.
The actor was finalised last night and an official announcement will happen soon. While Erica has already shot for the first teaser, a promo with Hina and Parth will also be released soon.”
Not many years ago, during the Vikas Gupta-Parth Samthaan controversy, Ekta had taken good friend Vikas’ stand. But, it seems now that they have reconciled, she too has buried the hatchet with the Kaisi Ye Yaariyan star.
Ekta on Saturday posted a series of mysterious tweets confirming the reports of Parth being on board. “None of d names floating can be d lead for kasauti as all r way past their prime!!! It’s a reboot of a ‘young (mid-twenties) love story’,” the producer wrote.
Ekta followed it with another tweet, “The lead Anurag cannot b over thirty playing twenty four na?”
It shall be interesting to see how Parth and Erica’s (who is the female lead) chemistry will translate on-screen.
Most importantly, we are quite curious to see whether they will be able to leave the same legacy as Anurag and Prerna!
