Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 is a remake of Ekta Kapoor's old show of the same name which aired from 2002 to 2008. It featured Shweta Tiwari and Cezanne Khan as Prerna and Anurag, who were soulmates divided by a scheming Komolika, played by Urvashi.
In a Twitter conversation, Ekta Kapoor revealed the traits of her new Komolika - less OTT for starters. Ekta Kapoor added: "The actor will have to look very innocent... child-like face and unbelievably sharp. Hoping to give this antagonist a complete reboot."
