Former Anurag Basu and once a popular TV actor Cezanne Khan who played the male lead in Ekta Kapoor’s TV show Kasautii Zindagii Kay in 2001 is super-excited about the revamped version of his show. The 2018 version of Kasautii Zindagii Kay will have Erica Fernandez and Parth Samthaan playing Prerna Sharma and Anurag Basu respectively.
"This show is very close to my heart as it has given me everything that I am today. I am super excited for the reboot of the show. It's refreshing and feels wonderful," Cezanne said in a statement.
"Watching the musical teaser made me feel super nostalgic. I relived my time as Anurag and cannot wait to see what the how the new Anurag (actor Parth Samthaan) will be in the show. I have not seen too many episodes of my season as I was busy shooting most of the time. Hence, I am all the more excited to watch the show now."
Asked if he would like to reprise his role, he said: "I wish I could play Anurag again in 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay' but this time the cast is going to be young and vibrant. It will be a delight to watch them for all the generations who might have missed out on ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay' back then."
Last month, Balaji Telefilms released the teaser of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 which featured Erica Fernandez as Prerna. However, Parth Samthaan’s look in the show hasn’t been revealed yet.
