Kishwer Merchantt to star in Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot?

Reports suggested that Kishwer Merchantt has been approached to play a significant character in Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot. Kishwer clears the air on the speculations.

A lot of chatter regarding the casting of Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot has been going on for the past few weeks.
 
Kasautii Zindagii Kay was an epic love story of Prerna and Anurag which was played to perfection by Shweta Tiwari and Cézanne Khan. The antagonist Komolika (played with finesse by Urvashi Dholakia) is considered as amongst the best villains in Indian Television history. 
 
The role of Prerna will be reprised by Erica Fernandes and she recently shot for the promo which paid tribute to the iconic theme song with the red dupatta. When it comes to the casting of Anurag, Barun Sobti and Ssharad Malhotra have been shortlisted for the show. 
 
According to Telly Chakkar, Kishwer Merchant was reportedly cast to be a part of the show and will be playing a significant character.
 
However, when Kishwer was contacted, she replied to TC, "No. I have not been approached for the Kasautii remake."
 
Meanwhile, many names popped up when it came to casting Komolika and talking about the same on Twitter, Ekta simply tweeted, "Even though there will b a reboot in her character ... it’ll b a v difficult casting for this iconic antagonist! So first choice will b hopefully d last choice JAI MATA DI. So many sources claiming so many actors in this epic characters casting’ I have approached only one person n she is d ONLY CHOICE."
 
The latest updates on the casting suggest that Hina Khan is in the final stages to play Komolika and if this is indeed true, it will be Hina and Ekta's first collaboration.
