Ekta Kapoor’s super hit show Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 will be soon going off-air and all primary cast including Erica Fernandes aka Prerna have wrapped up their shooting parts. “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,” said Erica to E Times. When asked whether she is disappointed by the show coming to an end, Erica replied, “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.”
When questioned that the second season didn’t matched up to the expectations like the first one, she responded, “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.” She also agreed that the lockdown played a spoil sport and said, “Yes, to a great extent. There were many restrictions on the set after shooting resumed in June. Issues like social distancing and lesser crew members hampered the industry a lot.”
The actress said that she developed great chemistry with all the costars and asserted, “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.” When asked about missing the fun on the sets, she replied, “I am not a morning person and I hate getting up early. So, I am enjoying this phase, when I can sleep till late without worrying about the shoot’s early call time. However, I am missing being on set — having fun, doing masti with co-actors, the chit-chat sessions, leg-pulling, gossiping and playing pranks during the breaks.”
Erica revealed that she now wants to play a character like warrior princess in the future. “Now, I want to do something that I have not tried so far. Maybe, playing a warrior princess would be great, as it will have various dimensions to it,” concluded Erica.
