Naagin 2 will have Adaa Khan as a hot and sultry Maasi!
Shesha is back to sizzle on screen! Adaa Khan has signed on the dotted line to play the sultry yet wicked Shesha in Naagin season 2. This week, Adaa formalized her contract. There was speculation that her character Shesha will not be there in season 2 with Mouni Roy. The story will now open with Ritik (Arjun Bijlani) and Shivanya’s (Mouni Roy) daughter swearing to avenge her parents’ death and this role will be played by Mouni Roy only. In October, Naagin season 2 will launched along with Big Boss on October 16. After the thanda TRPs of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and 24, the channel is looking to bring some zing back in weekend programming.
While Arjun Bijlani will not be seen in season 2, Shakti Arora currently seen in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa will be new main lead of Naagin 2. Incidentally, Arjun and Shakti are pitted against each other in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and have worked together in Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi. The shoot of Naagin 2 will start this month as the new season will go on air in October. Mouni Roy is already working on her new look, which will be very different from what she played as Shivanya in season 1. Adaa will play Shesha only and will be the Maasi of Mouni Roy. As they say, Naagins don't age this aunty will be young and glamorous.
Meanwhile, casting is one for other characters as well .The show will take the same slot of Kavach on Colors. The opening episode will be an outdoor shoot planned by director Santram Verma and producer Ekta Kapoor.
Naagin made history in the since that it retained its top position on the TRP charts till its end. It gave TV new ideas about the supernatural genre and triggered off a number of new shows.
For Adaa, this was her most popular show that she had done till date. Same for Mouni Roy who has shows like Mahadev and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhie Bahu this to her credit but Naagin opened Mouni’s door to stardom and fame.
While producer of the show Ekta Kapoor was initially contemplating having new faces in Naagin 2 the channel insisted on original cast. After the lukewarm response to Kavach, this time Colors does not want to take any chances with Naagin 2. Ekta Kapoor’s other supernatural show, Brahmarakshas is also doing quite well on TRP charts.
