Aamna Sharif has replaced Hina Khan in Ekta Kapoor’s reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 as the iconic vamp Komolika.
In media interactions, Aamna has now opened up about the pressures of playing such an iconic character and her efforts of not letting her fans down.
Speaking with a news outlet, she says: “It’s not easy to recreate such an iconic role.
Both Urvashi Dholakia and Hina Khan have portrayed it so beautifully that I can’t take this role for granted.
They made the character so popular that the audience will look up to me with more expectations, and I don’t want to let them down.
There is a lot of pressure on my shoulders. I am trying my level best to do justice to the role.”
She further explains what motivated her to choose to do the role: “I was listening to a lot of scripts but I did not find anything interesting.
When I was offered this role I took it up because it’s extremely exciting for an actor to try something new and I guess the audience now wants to see different dimensions of an actor in you.
They don’t want to see you doing the same thing. As an artist, it is important to entertain fans with different characters, and this made me pick up this project.”
Interestingly, Aamna began her career as playing the endearing and strong protagonist Kashish in Kahiin Toh Hoga.
One looks forward to seeing what she has to offer in this legendary character!
