Komolika (Urvashi Dholakia and Hina Khan) in Kasautii Zindagii Kay
If We Talk About Vamps On Television the first name that pops Into Our Mind Is Urvashi Dholakia. Komolika is considered as an iconic Daily Soap Opera Villain.
Today, Urvashi is Remembered For Her Over the Top Facial Expressions and her Distinctive Fashion Sense. Her changing hairstyles to her love for Saree’s with Daring Blouses, loud makeup and, Stylish Bindi’s has inspired Many Trends.
Interestingly, Even Hina Khan is winning hearts as Komolika. It was one such challenge for hina to pull of Komolika on Television Again. And, there is no denying fact that After Playing Protagonist Akshara For 8 Long Years In Star plus Longest Running Show “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” Hina Khan portrayed iconic character“Komolika “.
