We asked Ronit Roy if he’s in touch with Shweta Tiwari and other members of the iconic show and he said, “I shot with Shweta (Tiwari) some years back for another show of mine. Cezanne (Khan) I’m not in touch with at all. In fact, he quit Kasautii before it shut down. He stopped coming to set so we lost touch and we kind of never became such thick friends.”

The actor added, “None of the actors from Kasautii one is in touch with so to say on a regular basis and that could also be because I am a very reclusive person. I don’t go to parties. I don’t go out. Thoda shor-sharab I stay away from all that. You get to know through social media who’s doing what. Once in a while you exchange a word. On the other side, Tassnim (Sheikh) is like a sister. Rakshanda (Khan) is like a sister. Mandira (Bedi) I am still in touch with. Mandira has become a friend now. So Mandira, I am very fond of her, so we exchange messages. So there are few people even if you don’t meet, I am in touch with and with some I am not in touch with at all.”
Given the success of the show, Kasautii Zindagi Kay was remade starring Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes in the lead roles. Recalling his reaction to the reboot, Ronit said, “I had no feeling at all because coming to TV from.. for years you had seen you know the classic songs getting remixed and rebooted and so it was that in a different way.”
The actor went on to add, “For example I did a show for Balaji called Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai. I did three seasons and I was told that I will be doing a fourth season but with the entire new cast and a new story. I thought it was a good idea. When you bring in new actors, all those actors have characters who have their own truth and who are not trying to live somebody else’s truth. So that I thought was a better option but you know, in hindsight nobody was the loser so it’s all good.”
