Here's Karishma Tanna's first look from Ekta Kapoor's Naagin 3.
Qubool Hai actress Surbhi Jyoti and Anita Hassanandani, best known for her role in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, star in lead roles in Naagin 3. "With the already popular faces Mouni Roy and Adaa Khan missing from the screen, the makers decided to get well-known actors Anita and Surbhi in their places," a source earlier told Indian Express. Surbhi will play a positive role while Anita will be seen as the antagonist. Indian Express also reported that actor Pearl V Puri will play the male lead in Naagin 3.
In January, Mouni Roy had shared a heartfelt note for Ekta and team Naagin and wished everyone good luck. "I have been holding onto this emotion for quite some time now. But it's time to let go of something that holds a very large part of my heart. The show that gave me everything; Shivanya & Shivangi, embodying them was a privilege I was given by Ekta Kapoor. Thank you ma'am, I shall always be thankful and they'll always be a part of me," read an excerpt from her post.
