Ekta Kapoor’s super natural drama show Naagin is one of the favourite show on Indian television. The last season with Surbhi Chandna, Sharad Malhotra and Mohit Sehgal stood out because of the chemistry between the main leads. Some days back, a rumour was doing the rounds that Rubina Dilaik might join the franchise as the main Naagin. But now the name of Niyati Fatnani is doing the rounds. Everyone knows her as Pia from Gul Khan’s show Nazar. It was in the same genre and she has great experience of working in chroma, which is a pre-requisite for Naagin. Niyati Fatnani is known as a good actress as well.
According to SpotboyE. A source close to the show told the portal, “Auditions are being done for the new season of Naagin 6 and there are high chances that Niyati Fatnani will play the lead in the show. The actress was also considered for season 5 but Surbhi Chandana was finalised later. But this time the makers are keen on finalising Niyati for the role.” The actress has also done the Sony TV show Yeh Moh Moh Ke Dhaagey that had Eijaz Khan in the lead role. Her work was appreciated there as well.
The first season with Mouni Roy and Arjun Bijlani was a huge success. The second season flopped after a decent start. The makers gained lost momentum with Naagin 3 that had Surbhi Jyoti and Pearl V Puri in the lead roles. People loved the plot, and the fiery chemistry of the couple. Naagin 4 turned out to be damp squib though. The show got affected by the coronavirus pandemic too. It had Nia Sharma and Vijayendra Kumeria in main roles. The highlight of that season was the entry of Hina Khan who set the ball rolling for season five.
