The first episode of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 aired tonight at 8 pm on Star Plus and fans can’t help but compare it with the first episode of the original show. The premiere episode gave a lot of nostalgia, but it was also refreshing at the same time. The Ekta Kapoor TV show is based in Kolkata with Parth Samthaan stepping in the shoes of Anurag Basu’s character, whereas Erica Fernandes is the new Prerna.
Twitterati can’t stop praising Erica and Parth after watching the first episode.

Erica had confessed that she has mixed feelings about the show. “I am excited and nervous. There’s also a feeling of responsibility. So there are too many emotions right now,” the TV actress was quoted as saying to . Interestingly, the Kasautii reboot is Erica’s second stint on Hindi television.
Since it has been 17 years since the Balaji Telefilms show aired its first episode, a lot has changed. From the first few promos of the reboot, the locations now seem more authentic, we are indeed in real-time Kolkata.
The actors are also not the same. All our favourite characters from the show have found new faces to represent them.
This is currently, Ekta’s dream project and she is giving in her 200 percent to make sure that every scene is turning out to be magical and flawless.
In terms of creating buzz for the show, the ace producer is not leaving any stone unturned. Even if it means keeping fans all confused about who is playing Komolika. Reports have it that Bigg Boss 1 fame Hina Khan is the new Komolika and even, original Komolika aka Urvashi Dholakia recently confirmed the news to Spotboye.
