Ekta Kapoor's Naagin 3 has been in news ever since the producer announced that Mouni Roy will not be a part of the third instalment of the supernatural series.

Recently, it was confirmed that Surbhi Jyoti will replace Mouni as the face of Naagin 3. Surbhi beat other front-runners, Krystle D'Souza and Sanjeeda Shaikh, to bag the lead role.

Now, reports have been doing the rounds that Anita Hassanandani is likely to play the antagonist on the show. Anita will replace Adaa Khan, who essayed the negative role of Sesha for the past two seasons.

"After an intensive search, these actors have been finalized. While names of Krystle Dsouza 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," a source told Indian Express.

Anita is currently seen as Shagun in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. Although her character has shades of grey, it has earned her immense popularity. Now, it remains to be seen if Anita manages to juggle between two shows or quit Yeh Hai Mohabbatein for Naagin 3.

It has been reported that Naagin 3 would be very different from the Naagin series we have seen so far. The story would kick-start with college friends Shivani and Taksha. Their lives would take a drastic turn when supernatural connections invade their lives.

The fictional series will go on air in January 2018. The finite series had in the first two seasons consistently topped the Television Rating Point (TRP) charts from the start.
