It is one of the most exciting birthdays for Surbhi Jyoti. Her mega TV show Naagin 3 will go on air from a few days. The Qubool Hai actress has stepped into the shoes of Mouni Roy for the serial. Surbhi is playing the role of the simple and hard-working Bela on the show. This is also her first show with Colors and Balaji Telefilms. She is also turning a year older today. BollywoodLife caught up with her for a chat. She told us, "My birthday is coming at a crucial time. I do not work on my birthdays. But this year it is different. Honestly, I am very nervous. It feels like my exam results are round the corner. I have not planned anything. This show is my biggest gift. It is the No.1 show of Indian Television. The serial goes on air on my birthday week." The actress told us that nervousness motivates her to do better. When we asked her about her fave actor and superhero character, she said, "I am a huge fan of Wolverine. I adore Hugh Jackman. It is my dream to be in the same screen as him. I love him. I also want to work with Al Pacino and Meryl Streep as well."
Talking about Indian supernatural shows she said that though we lagged behind technically, we were a nation that grew up on folklore and fantasy tales. "We are very fascinated by these tales, which is why such shows do well. As an actor, I want to do something different all the time. So far, I have played realistic characters. Naagin is something I have not done before but then I told myself that I am a good actor and can deliver," she says.
Naagin 3 stars Anita Hassnandani, Karishma Tanna, Rajat Tokas, Rakshanda Khan and Pearl V Puri in lead roles along with Surbhi. The story is reportedly inspired by Jaani Dushman - Ek Anokhi Kahaani. Karishma Tanna is the shape shifting serpent who returns to avenge the death of her lover played by Tokas. The Jodha Akbar actor has undergone huge transformation for the role.
