Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagi Kay 2 is one of the highly-rated shows on TV. Apart from Prerna Sharma and Anurag Basu's sizzling chemistry, it is Komolika and her adaayein that was one of the USPs of the show. So when the news of the actress leaving the show mid-way in March broke in the media, it left her fans shocked. Though there were speculations of her coming back on the show, Khan recently confirmed her exit from the show. With her exit, SpotboyE.com revealed that it is Aamna Sharif who will be slipping into Hina's shoes, post which, tongues started wagging.
So when asked her if she is apprehensive about comparisons with Hina Khan, she told TOI, "I haven’t seen the show and so, didn’t get a chance to see the way Hina portrayed it. But I have heard she was doing a commendable job. Urvashi Dholakia had played the character many years ago in 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay' in such a powerful way that Komolika became a cult figure."
Talking about the hiatus and returning to TV, Aamna said, “The reason for the break was the need to reinvent my personal life. It would have been easy to stay in my comfort zone and come back with a love story, but that wouldn’t have satiated me as an actor. It’s always a different kind of rush to surprise your audience. So, when I was offered the role of Komolika, I instinctively knew that this is what will challenge me the most as an actor.”
Well, now the question is, will Sharif be better than Hina in Ekta Kapoor's KZK reboot? Better or not, we do know Aamna is one heck of a performer who has been sorely missed on screen and we couldn't be happier that she is back.
