While Erica Fernandes has been finalised to play Prerna in the reboot of ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ (2001), the search for an actor to play Anurag is still ongoing.
The original serial had Shweta Tiwari and Cezanne Khan playing the lead roles, reprots DNA India. A source says that producer Ekta Kapoor has been meeting TV actors and auditions are underway.
“Several actors have already given look tests, but Ekta wants somebody who will match the traits of Anurag. The hero has to be a little khadoos, a workaholic and a man who is stuck between two women,” says the source, adding, “There was talk of Shaheer Sheikh doing the role, but he is not in the reckoning. Ekta has two actors in mind, Angad Bedi and Mohit Raina, but is yet to take a final call. Nonetheless, she will decide soon as the shoot is scheduled to begin in two weeks.”
