Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 has been one to be in the news ever since it first went on-air and even before that. While the show has brought to us a fresh pairing for Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes as Anurag and Prerna, it also presented to us a different side of Hina Khan as Komolika. We witnessed another heroic entry in the form of Karan Singh Grover as Mr. Bajaj, however, the equations did not last for long as replacements followed.
Hina had to opt-out of the show due to her commitments while Karan Singh Grover seemed to have been at the behest of the circumstances and soon, Karan Patel stepped in. Hina was later replaced by Aamna Shariff, who has been doing a fair job as Komolika after all. None the less, this saga of replacements doesn't seem to be stopping after all.
Now, reports about Parth Samthaan calling it quits have been doing the rounds and well, how fair is it to have audiences hooked onto a show with three major replacements? We all saw how the show went for a little bit of a toss when Hina was replaced and in fact, she is still loved for the role she played for those couple of days.
The question that now emerges is will another replacement by the end of the show? In fact, there have been reports that Ekta Kapoor might end the show if she does not find the correct replacement, and it is only the smart thing to do maybe? There is no doubt that fans get habituated to replacements eventually, however, the TRPs suffer and the story undergoes a natural shift, even though in reality, only the faces change.
We have had multiple instances when things just did not work out for the makers after replacement, Ishqbaaaz is one example. When Surbhi Chandna made way for Niti Taylor, things weren't quite the same. A different season of a show, one like Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? too, failed to keep the audiences hooked when anyone but Sanaya Irani and Barun Sobti came together.
When iconic shows are being made, and Kasautii is one, after all, the leads and the cast indeed play a key role and the replacements, more often than not, end up doing more bad!
None the less, who knows things might work for Kasautii Zindagii Kay after all? What do you think? Drop your comments in the section below.
