Supernatural drama Naagin 4 is set to launch soon on Colors. After revealing Nia Sharma as the lead of the show, creator Ekta Kapoor has now unveiled Jasmin Bhasin as the second naagin.
Giving a warm welcome to Jasmin, Ekta posted a 12-second video on her social media account. In the video, Jasmin shows off her glamorous avatar, looking like a femme fatale. The audience also gets a glimpse of snakeskin on her as she slithers along with a huge five-head snake. Ekta wrote with the video, "Welcome to the world of Nagins. @jasminbhasin in and as NAGIN Bhagya ka zehreela Khel ...."
Reposting the video on Instagram, Jasmin Bhasin wrote, "And for everyone who wanted to see me back on television, I am back in an as nagin. Can’t thank enough to @ektaravikapoor mam @muktadhond mam @balajitelefilmslimited for this. And my apologies to everyone for denying or ignoring your questions about whether I am doing nagin 4 or not, I had no intention to lie or ignore but it’s best for some things to be revealed at the right moment . I hope you all will forgive me and give me the same amount of love like always."
A source shared with indianexpress.com, "Jasmin was one of the first to be approached for the show. She has always been known as the bubbly young girl and this was a chance for her to break that image. It would be also her first attempt at supernatural drama and she is quite excited about it. Along with her and Nia, Sayantani Ghosh will also join the cast as one of the pivotal characters. The actors are already prepping up for their roles, and the show will go on floors soon."
Jasmin Bhasin made her debut with Tashan-E-Ishq and then went on to star in Dil Se Dil Tak and Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji. She has also been part of Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 and was last seen in Khatra Khatra Khatra.
Last month, Ekta Kapoor had introduced Nia Sharma as the face of Naagin 4. She had shared, “Welcome to the world of Naagins "Nia Sharma" @Theniasharma #Naagin- Bhagya Kaa Zehreela Khel only on @ColorsTV Coming Soon.” Excited about joining the franchise, Nia replied to her saying, “And thank you a ‘million’ times for this opportunity @ektaravikapoor It’s an absolute honor and privilege.”
The Naagin series launched in 2015 with Mouni Roy and Adaa Khan playing the female leads. The two actors reprised their roles in the second season before moving out. Surbhi Jyoti and Anita Hassanandani stepped in for the third installment. Arjun Bijlani, Karanvir Bohra and Pearl V Puri have played the male leads in the three seasons.
