Shilpa Shinde and Hina Khan were the two most talked about housemates during season 11 of Bigg Boss reality show on Colors. Shilpa went on to win the competition, while Hina finished as the first runner-up.
However, it’s Hina, whose acting career has received a new lease of life post Bigg Boss, while Shilpa has once again slipped into oblivion of sorts.
Both Shilpa and Hina were acclaimed TV actors before they took part in the Bigg Boss competition. Perhaps, this added to their fierce rivalry that was witnessed during the show. One would have thought that Shilpa’s winning the competition may bring peace between the two. But the former Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain star’s latest comments show, she continues to be bitter about her former Bigg Boss housemate.
Shilpa was asked to comment about media reports about Hina Khan possibly being cast as the new age Kumolika in Ekta Kapoor’s iconic TV series Kasauti Zindagi Kay. Shilpa sarcastically replied, “”Wasn’t she the Komolika of Bigg Boss 11 already?”
“Well, she is a good actress and playing a negative role shouldn’t be difficult for her. So yes, she will essay the role well. Comedy was difficult for her but otherwise she is good,” Times of India quoted her as saying.
Ekta had recently tweeted about relaunching Kasauti Zindagi Kay with a new star cast. Taking to Twitter, Ekta had written, “So much speculation on who is komolika ! Just that she will b totally diff than d earlier one ! Smarter less OTT as fierce just less obvious!
“So d actor will have to look v innocent ! Child like face n unbelievably sharp hoping to give this antagonist a complete reboot!”
Kasautii Zindagii Kay, had shot to fame in the past with Shweta Tiwari and Cezanne Khan playing the lead roles. In the relaunched series, Erica Fernandes of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi will be seen playing the role of Prerna, while no one knows who will be the remaining cast.
Speaking about the rumours, Hina had recently told Hindustan Times, “I won’t say it’s not happening, but I suggest let’s wait for the official announcement. Yes, I did go to meet Ekta and somehow people started to speculate, and it came to a point where they even confirmed that I’ve been roped in for the show, whereas I’m yet to sign anything. I mean you don’t know what talks we exchanged in a room and how it works, so let the makers make the final announcement.”
Hina had recently stunned everyone by saying that she did not want to remember anything about her time in Bigg Boss. One wonders, why would she do that given that her acting career got an extraordinary boost because of this reality show?
