It is known to all of us that TV show ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2’ is soon going off-air. Prerna Sharma aka Erica Fernandes has finished her filming part. Opening up on the same Erica says, “Every good thing comes to an end, and daily soaps are no different. In order to make way for a new show, the older show has to come to an end”.
The show is going off-air and is Erica disappointed? Erica replied saying, “Not at all. Actually, an actor has no say in whether the show will run for years or come to an end all of a sudden. We are actors and cannot control the storyline, which is the prerogative of the makers and channels.”
Original KZK starring Shweta Tiwari was quite successful what do you have to say about it?
Erica replies saying, “It’s not necessary that what worked 20 years ago, will receive similar attention and fame today. Back then, the audiences were different, but viewers have evolved over the years. Similarly, the script and content of daily soaps have evolved and there’s no set formula that works every time.” Post lockdown, while filming of TV shows resumed, many shows were also pulled off air abruptly. So, did the lockdown play spoilsport? “Yes, to a great extent. There were many restrictions on the set after filming resumed in June. Issues like social distancing and lesser crew members hampered the industry a lot.”
It is also believed by Erica that her on-screen chemistry with co-star Parth Samthaan was a result of their friendship. Opening up on the same she said, “Not just Parth, I had developed great chemistry with all my co-actors in the show. While I already knew some of them, Parth and I met on the set and became friends. If two actors are comfortable with each other, that chemistry translates on the screen.”
