Reports were doing the rounds that Krystale D’Souza has replaced Mouni Roy in the third season of her popular show, Naagin. Also, buzz was that for the character played by Adaa Khan, names like Vindhya Tewari & Aastha Sharma were being considered.
However, looks like Ekta Kapoor has made her choice for the upcoming season of her supernatural show. As per a report in Indian Express, Surbhi Jyoti will be portraying the lead role (earlier played by Mouni) while Anita Hassanadani will portray the antagonist, Shesha (previously played by Adaa). Karanvir Bohra will reportedly be retained for the male lead.
After an intensive search, these actors have been finalized. While names of Krystle D’Souza and Sanjeeda Sheikh were also in the running, Ekta personally got involved in the casting to choose the best face for Naagin 3. The team is currently in the process of signing the deals with the other cast and hopefully, the show should go on floors soon.
Naagin 3 will go on air in place of Bigg Boss 11 Weekend Ka Vaar, January onwards.
