Confirmed! Aamna Sharif replaces Hina Khan as Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay
Post Hina Khan’s exit from Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, fans were left disappointed. Ever since then, viewers couldn’t help but wonder who will portray the iconic vamp Komolika in the show. Well, the good news is, the wait is finally over! After much speculation on who Ekta Kapoor would finalise as the new Komolika, it has now been confirmed that neither Gauhar Khan nor Karishma Tanna but Ekta has roped in Aamna Sharif to portray Komolika.
Aamna is a known face in the entertainment industry and rose to fame in the early 2000s with Ekta Kapoor’s show Kahiin to Hoga and was later seen in films like Aloo Chaat and Ek Villain. Her last appearance on TV was Ek Thhi Naayika. The actor is set to return to the small screen after a hiatus of over six years.
Aamna confirmed her association with the show and expressed her excitement over playing a negative role for the very first time in her acting career. She told Bombay Times, “The reason for the break was the need to reinvent my personal life. It would have been easy to stay in my comfort zone and come back with a love story, but that wouldn’t have satiated me as an actor. It’s always a different kind of rush to surprise your audience. So, when I was offered the role of Komolika, I instinctively knew that this is what will challenge me the most as an actor.”

Opening up about the comparisons with Hina Khan that would come her way, she replies, “I haven’t seen the show and so, didn’t get a chance to see the way Hina portrayed it. But I have heard she was doing a commendable job. Urvashi Dholakia had played the character many years ago in ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ in such a powerful way that Komolika became a cult figure.”
Although Hina will be missed in the show, we are sure Aamna will take over and bring her own charm to the coveted role and keep audience entertained.
