Ekta Kapoor’s Kasautii Zindagii Kay has garnered unprecedented fame. Erica Fernandes aka Prerna has undoubtedly become a household name. Same is the scenario with Parth Samthaan, who plays her love interest. Unfortunately, as per reports, the actor has decided to quit the show.
Ever since the news broke, the show has been in the soup. It is rumoured that Parth has a Bollywood debut planned which he wants to put his complete focus on. He has also been quite inactive. As per reports, Samthaan missed 2 days of shoot in a single week and is adamant on opting out. He has also given his notice, even though Ekta Kapoor is trying to convince him to stay.
But if Parth Samthaan leaves, who could be a possible replacement? Several names have surfaced online for the new Anurag Basu. From Vijayendra Kumeria to Barun Sobti and others, check out the list of possible replacement of the male lead in Kasautii Zindagii Kay:
1. Vijayendra Kumeria
The actor has recently proved his acting chops in Ekta Kapoor’s Naagin 4. The show might not have been praised as much, but Vijayendra, as well as Nia Sharma and Rashami Desai, were all loved for their portrayal. It was the script that somewhere lacked, as per many. But with Kasautii Zindagii Kay nailing that aspect, the makers could opt for Kumeria.
2. Barun Sobti
Barun rose to fame with his portrayal in Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? He played the role of Arnav Singh Raizada and turned into a national heartthrob in no time. With Erica Fernandes’ personality being no less, Sobti and she could make an adorable pair together. What do y’all think?
3. Vishal Aditya Singh
Vishal has been a part of several shows previously. However, he rose to fame all over again when he participated in Nach Baliye with ex-girlfriend Madhurima Tuli. That also fetched him Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss. While his infamous ‘pan’ fight is known to all, let’s see if Ekta Kapoor is keen on roping in him.
4. Harshad Chopda
Last seen with Jennifer Winget in Bepannah, Harshad’s fan following is no less. There are fangirls all across the country that just wait for an update from the actor. Also, this isn’t the first time Chopda has been rumoured to be a part of Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Back in May, rumours were rife that he would romance Erica on the show. So is it, better late than never?
5. Aashim Gulati
Aashim began his showbiz career in 2015. There has been no looking back for the actor ever since. Just the following year, he even made his Bollywood debut opposite Neha Sharma in Tum Bin II. Last seen in Karn Sangini opposite Tejasswi Prakash, could Kasautii Zindagii Kay become a breakthrough point in his career? Everything is in Ekta Kapoor’s hands!
