I remember somebody had put up a promo of Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi on Facebook. One of my friends and I saw the promo. And I instantly made a call to someone and asked, ‘who’s this girl?’ They said her name is Erica. I wanted to cast her since the day I saw her in promo. And then I offered her the show as soon as hers ended.”
Ekta was also asked how she roped in Parth Samthaan for Anurag Basu’s role. To this, Ekta replied, “As for Parth, I auditioned many guys but none had the eyes that speak like his does. I saw his picture and casted him.”
