Erica Fernandes (Prerna), another TV hottie has been roped in to be a part of
Ekta Kapoor's upcoming show, Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. SpotboyE.com
has it that Madhurima Tuli will play the antagonist, Komolika, which was so
beautifully portrayed by Urvashi Dholakia in the original show.

Saath Nibhana Saathiya actress Rucha Hasabnis was also in contention for the role. Rucha, who quit acting after marriage and moved into certain business ventures, was called to step into Urvashi’s shoes, and on Star Plus’ request, even did a mock test. But then, she had second thoughts and opted out. When we contacted her, she did not deny that she had contemplated Ekta's offer, but simply said, “I am happily occupied with my business assignments, right now. So, I am not coming back on TV anytime soon.”
We also hear, Arshi Khan auditioned for the same role but her histrionics didn’t impress Balaji and Star Plus much.
Urvashi Dholakia As Komolika
Just yesterday we brought to you a picture of Erica Fernandes shooting for the promo of the show. Wearing the identical black salwar kameez with long red dupatta as Shweta Tiwari (Prerna) did in the title track of the original series, Erica gave us major nostalgia. We also told you how Ssharad Malhotra and Barun Sobti are running neck to neck in the race of playing Anurag Basu. Earlier Shaheer Shaikh was approached for the lead role, however, he opted for Mughal-E-Azam instead.
Coming back to Madhurima, well, if all goes well, the actress will play the famous villain of the show, Komolika, who won many hearts even with her negativity.

This is sort of a homecoming for Madhurima as she was last seen in Ekta’s Chandrakanta on Colors.
