India’s undisputed TV Czarina Ekta Kapoor and Bollywood’s king, Shah Rukh Khan, on Friday were two of the biggest trends on internet. The reasons were the news of two of the most successful entertainment personalities coming together for a new TV project and an ‘oops’ moment caused by Ekta on social media platform.
Ekta, who is currently busy finalising the launch schedule of her reversion of Kausautii Zindagi Kay show, had posted a short video of herself with Shah Rukh. In the video, Shah Rukh was seen teasing Ekta by asking about her love interest in real life. This caused Ekta to blush prompting her to go in Shah Rukh’s arms with a confession ‘I love you sir.”
But within minutes, the video had disappeared from her timeline but not until someone had already downloaded the video to post it using another account. Although Ekta did not specify any reason why she was taking down the video, all she wrote was “Oooooops! I was dying to say it’s you sir! But I shut up! Otherwise I’m in love with my work #halftruths #mugshots.”
Moments later, it was clear that the short video was a part of the promotional video of Kausautii Zindagii Kay, which has brought the two incredibly successful individuals from the TV and Bollywood together for the first time. Launching the promotional video, Ekta wrote, “Ok announcing the new Anurag and Prerna …it’s me n @iamsrk ????????kidding announcing the new date #KasautiiZindagiiKay releases on 25 th September #mugshot #love #forevers JAI MATA DI”
Ekta confirmed the reports her collaboration with Shah Rukh after she retweeted a tweet of her production house, Balaji Telefilms. The tweet read, “If @ektaravikapoor and Shah Rukh Khan are coming together, you know there’s something brewing. #KasautiiZindagiiKay, Starts 25th September at 8pm only on @StarPlus @iamsrk”

In the relaunch edition of Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Erica Fernandes plays the lead role of Prerna (played by actor Shweta Tiwari in the original version), while Parth Samthaan will reportedly play the role of Anurag Basu, which was played by Cezanne Khan. Former Bigg Boss contestant Hina Khan will also be reportedly seen in Komolika’s role.
A report by Pinkvilla website had recently said, “Shah Rukh Khan will introduce the lead characters and will also be the narrator for the first three episodes of the serial. This is as a part of his deal with Star India. But it is sure to add to the excitement of the masses.”
