The soap opera queen had earlier unveiled the look of former Bigg Boss contestant Karishma Tanna, who will play a snake shifting creature in the show.
Interestingly, both Anita and Karishma have worked with Balaji Productions before. While Anita is currently seen in Ekta’s long-running show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Karishma was part of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu.

There have been a lot of speculations over the star cast of Naagin 3 ever since it was announced that Mouni and Adaa won’t be part of the show. Grapevines are buzzing with the rumours that Surbhi Jyoti would be revealed as the third Naagin very soon.

Naagin created ripples on the small screen when it was launched in 2015 on Colors. The show set the TRP ratings on fire, all thanks to twists and turns and impeccable pe4formabces of the lead actors.
Fans still love Mouni and Adaa for their respective roles of Shivanya and Shesha. It will be a tough job for the two new actresses of Naagin 3 to fill in their shoes but we are sure Karishma and Anita would surpass all the expectations.
