Recently, it was revealed that Karishma Tanna will be one of the leads in the supernatural show. However, according to an Indian Express report, Karishma will be murdered and reborn as Surbhi. The actress will replace Mouni as the face of Naagin 3.

Anita Hassanandani of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein fame is likely to play the antagonist on the show. Anita will replace Adaa Khan, who played the negative role of Sesha for the past two seasons.

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 consistently topped the Television Rating Point (TRP) charts from the start in the first two seasons.

Recently, the makers released the promo of Naagin 3 and it created a lot of buzz among fans of the supernatural series. The trailer doesn't reveal the face of the lead actress, thereby raising the curiosity among the fans.
