The reboot of 2000s popular daily soap Kasautii Zindagii Kay went on air on Tuesday. After several posters, teasers and statues of the lead actors, the audience finally met Prerna and Anurag. TV mogul Ekta Kapoor made sure to take the viewers on a nostalgia trip as she introduced the lovebirds in a similar manner as she did eighteen years ago. The first episode of the revamped version of the show was almost a replica of the first episode of the original Kasautii Zindagii Kay.
The makers have utilised the first episode of the Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot to establish the characters. Every character has been introduced well and you also get a hint of Prerna and Anurag’s future. Before you watch the next episode, here’s a guide on who plays who in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2.
1. Parth Samthaan as Anurag Basu
Parth Samthaan plays the ideal son Anurag Basu but he is different from Anurag (Cezzane Khan) of 2001. If he is dedicated towards his studies, he is also the one who is interested in sports. Unlike the previous Anurag whose ultimate aim in life was to make a name for himself, the Anurag of 2018 knows how to enjoy life.
2. Erica Fernandez as Prerna Sharma
There is not much of a difference between the Prerna (played by Shweta Tiwari) of 2001 and Prerna of today. She is outgoing, ambitious, bubbly and believes in living in the moment.
3. Uday Tikekar as Moloy Basu
Originally played by Deepak Qazir, Uday Tikekar has taken up the role of Anurag Basu’s father. He keeps the ambience of Basu mansion light with jokes on his wife Mohini Moloy Basu.
