Welcome, Aamna Sharif! The actress has stepped into the shoes of Hina Khan to play the new Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Sharif will be seen playing the iconic negative character in Ekta Kapoor’s show. In the new promo of KZK, the TV czarina introduced as Aamna as the new Komolika, a villain in Parth Samthaan (Anurag Basu) and Erica Fernandes’ (Prerna) life. Needless to add, viewers have a lot of expectations from the actress as Hina Khan had set the bar high by bringing own swag to this iconic character. Recently, in a chat with India Forums, Aamna Sharif got candid about playing Komolika, comparisons with Hina Khan and the baggage of living up to people’s expectations.
On being asked about the comparisons made between her and Hina, Aamna said, “Comparisons are inevitable and surely it’s a huge responsibility as Hina has really performed wonderfully and I hope I can also do justice to this iconic character in my own way.” Well, we hope Aamna pulls off her responsibility really well.
Further, in a chat with the entertainment portal, Aamna Sharif spoke about playing a negative character for the first time in her acting career, she added, “I don’t look at roles as positive or negative, they should be entertaining and challenging. When you get such a larger than life character to perform, it’s compelling enough to do it.”
Aamna returns to the small screen after a period of six years. She was last seen in Ek Thhi Naayika (2013). Opening up about the long break that she took to reinvent herself, the actress had earlier said, “The reason for the break was the need to reinvent my personal life. It would have been easy to stay in my comfort zone and come back with a love story, but that wouldn’t have satiated me as an actor. It’s always a different kind of rush to surprise your audience. So, when I was offered the role of Komolika, I instinctively knew that this is what will challenge me the most as an actor.”
