Aamna Sharif as Komolika in <i>Kasautii Zindagii Kay</i>

One of the most loved antagonists of Indian television, Komolika is all set to return to Kasautii Zindagii Kay, as shown in the show’s new promo. While the fans thought that Komolika has left the show after she fell off the terrace into the river, she’s now back with a bang and that too with a new face. Earlier played by Hina Khan, the character will now be portrayed by Ek Villain actor Aamna Sharif.

The promo shows that Komolika will return in Prerna and Anurag’s life, donning a new face after plastic surgery. From the looks of it, Aamna has already adapted to the mannerisms of the character, with the signature smirk and expressions of Komolika.

Ekta Kapoor too shared the teaser and wrote, “Bihar ka bebaaakpan .... bengal ki adaaa say hi to KOMOLIKAAAA! Amna not so ‘sharif’ anymore as #komolika.”


Playing a negative role on screen for the first time, Aamna said in an interview, “It is very easy to be in your comfort zone and come back with a love story. However, this kind of role is challenging as well as exciting. So, when I was offered Komolika’s role, I immediately said yes.”

“I haven’t seen the show, but I have heard that Hina 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,” she added. The actor will be reuniting with Ekta Kapoor after their 2004 hit soap Kahiin Toh Hoga, in which she starred opposite Rajeev Khandelwal.
