Shweta Tiwari became a household name with her stint of Prerna in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. Thanks to Ekta Kapoor for launching such talented actors. The show was not only popular in India but became a benchmark across the globe. The makers are all set to return to the small screen with a reboot version and speculations about the cast have been rife since the announcement. Erica Fernandes was revealed to be playing Prerna and fans couldn’t stop rejoicing. But Shweta Tiwari, in an interaction, mentioned that her daughter, Palak was also offered the role. And this left Ekta in utter shock.
Confirming the news to Hindustan Times, Shweta had said, “In fact, everybody was saying, even from Balaji (production house) that she should do it. It was she who said ‘No mom, I don’t think I can do a daily soap and work day in and day out. I cannot do that at this point in time.’ And not only Kasautii, many other television shows were offered to her, she said no to every show. She said, ‘Right now I don’t want to do it. Even if I have to do it, then I’ll do it later.’” However, the TV czarina has denied having offered the role to Palak. She took to Twitter to deny the news and wrote, “Aaah reaaaaaly?????????? How come I don’t know.” [sic] (Also Read: Rumour Has It! Hiten Tejwani to play Mr Bajaj in Erica Fernandes-Parth Samthaan’s Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2)
