Former Bigg Boss contestant Gauahar Khan, who has gone missing after a couple of TV roles, might make her small-screen comeback soon with Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. The actress, who was last seen in the Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss, where she emerged as the winner in December 2013, is reportedly being considered to play Komolika in the show. Reports suggest that the actress, who will step in Hina Khan's shoes as Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, is currently in talks with the makers for the same. Earlier, Dil To Happy Hai Ji actress Jasmin Bhasin was rumoured to be replacing Hina Khan as Komolika. However, the actress dismissed the rumours.

Speaking of Hina Khan's replacement, now the latest name to have popped up is Gauahar Khan. However, the actress has not confirmed or dismissed the reports yet. Pinkvilla, on the other hand, quoted a source close to the show as saying, "The makers are very keen on having Gauahar on-board to play Komolika on the show. Gauahar even gave the look test and has been in constant talks with the production house. The makers seem convinced and are insisting on having Khan as the new Komolika, but Gauahar is in a dilemma given that she has other web series and projects in hand. However, final talks and modalities are yet to be discussed." Jasmin Bhasin On Being Approached for Komolika’s Role – ‘I Am Not Interested in Stepping Into Someone Else’s Shoes’
Meanwhile, Hina Khan, who won hearts of the audiences with her acting chops in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 and garnered unprecedented success and adulation for her portrayal of vivacious Komolika, took a break from Ekta's Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, owing to her film commitments. While the actress had promised that she will be back soon, reports suggest that the makers are on a lookout for the new Komolika. Given Hina's shoot schedules, it seems quite unsure that the actress will be able to keep up her promise about returning to the show.
