Even as viewers of Ekta Kapoor's successful show "Naagin" are eagerly waiting for the second season of the supernatural series, speculations regarding the lead pair have started doing the rounds.
While it is known that Mouni Roy will continue to play the protagonist in Season 2, Arjun Bijlani, who was seen as the male lead in the first season, will not be a part of the new instalment. Karanvir Bohra has been approached to play the lead role, India Forums reported.

Meanwhile, the teaser of "Naagin 2," which was released a few months ago, had raised the curiosity levels among fans of the supernatural show. The promo featured lead actress Mouni and a new cast member, whose identity was not revealed in the video.
"Naagin 2" will see Adaa Khan and Sudha Chandran reprising their roles of Sesha and Yamini, respectively. Also, Aashka Goradia, who entered the show in the finale of the first season, will play a pivotal role in "Naagin 2."
