Naagin 3 is a supernatural thriller based on two shape shifting naagins. Karishma Tanna is joined by Anita Hassanandani, who also plays a snake woman. Of her show, Karishma told mid-day, "I am happy to be back, especially with this show. My character has many shades. And, even though I don't believe in folklore, people are gripped to the show." Naagin 3 also stars Surbhi Jyoti.
Though were hugely popular, the show was criticised for its plot. Mouni Roy had headlined both the shows. On being asked about if she thinks Naagin influences people into believing in superstitions, making them regressive, she told mid-day, "Everyone knows it's a fictional show. It's a concept explored for entertainment only. There are many who even ridicule the show, but, it enjoys a fan-following. The beauty with which the female actors are portrayed adds to its value."
Of the comparisons drawn between Indian and international TV series, Karishma told mid-day, "I am a big GoT. fan. I would say, we are getting there. Internationally, show makers don't drag storylines. If I have a production house, I'd only make finite stories. In case of daily soaps, I think they should not extend beyond six months."
Ekta Kapoor's Naagin 3 also stars Rajat Tokas, Rakshanda Khan, Chetan Hansraj and Pearl V Puri. The first episode of the show aired last weekend.
