As if the trend of Bollywood film remakes weren’t enough, now Ekta Kapoor is all set to reboot her popular serial Kasautii Zindagii Kay that featured Shweta Tiwari, Cezzane Khan and Ronit Roy in lead roles. The show will see Erica Fernandes of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi fame stepping into the shoes of Shweta’s famous role of Prerna Bajaj. However, speculations are rife about the male leads and especially who will play the popular role of Anurag Basu that was played by Cezzane.

Names of Shaheer Sheikh, Mohit Raina and even Angad Bedi were doing the rounds but Mohit and Angad vehemently refuted them on record. Shaheer is rumoured to be a part of Mughal-E-Azam that is being remade for TV and will be aired on Sony TV. Now according to rumours, the name of Barun Sobti is at the forefront. The Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 3 actor is one of the leading contenders for the role. Sources confirm that he is the favoured contender for the role and probably would be paired opposite Erica in the reboot. However, no official confirmation has come and when PeepingMoon.com contacted Barun, he dodged the question.

Kasam Tere Pyar Ki star Ssharad Malhotra is also being considered for the role. It will be interesting to see who takes the cake. On the other hand, Ekta took to Twiter to dispel rumours about who will play Urvashi Dholakia’s role of Kamolika in the show. Kamolika was the main antagonist and Urvashi’s iconic performance is a part of the pop culture now. Ekta said that she has already approached an actress for the role and she will hopefully be able to lock her for the role.
