Last Monday Cezanne Khan's character was finally bumped off on the long-running Kasauti Zindagi Kay. This, after weeks of dillydallying.
Says a source at Balajee, "Like Iqbal Khan, Cezanne is hoping for better prospects. He thinks he has a movie career waiting for him. Without a single offer from films
Cezanne decided to quit."
Without commenting on reasons for Cezanne's departure from Kasauti, Ekta Kapoor says, "I didn't really need him on the show any more. Ronit Roy too will taking a break.
The men will now be marginalized on Kasauti.... Prerna (Shweta Tiwari) will be setting up a gurukul. After Anurag's death Prerna will now be against men."
Prerna's character will replicate Amitabh Bachchan in Aditya Chopra's Mohabbatein.
Reveals Ekta, "Prerna has seven grand-daughters and she runs a guru-kul where men aren't allowed. And the girls aren't allowed to meets boys. Prerna has brought them up
without the presence of the opposite sex."
The hunt is on for a new Prerna. "She'll be the eldest grand daughter. We're casting for Kasauti Ki Nayi Prerna."
Ekta is all praise for Shweta Tiwari. "She's so young and she looks like a Vogue model. She's drop-dead gorgeous. And she isn't afraid of playing a grand- daughter."
