Television actress Karishma Tanna, who shot to fame with Ekta Kapoor‘s popular daily soap Kyunkii Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, will now be seen in the third installment of the much-celebrated fiction series Naagin. While she has bagged a role as one of the naagins in the upcoming supernatural series Naagin 3, the actress has been approached for yet another supernatural thriller on Star Plus.
Yes, you read that right. The actress is all set for a long second innings with her mentor, Ekta Kapoor. If the reports are to be believed, the leggy lass is apparently in the running for the lead female role on Star Plus’s upcoming show. Reportedly, the actress will be starred alongside Vivek Dahiya. Vivek, who is currently seen in Star Plus’ much-celebrated show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, has done a supernatural show before in Kavach – Kali Shaktiyon Se.
Reports also suggest that the show, which will air in the next few months, is based on Daayans i.e. witches. There are reports that Karishma has replaced Asmita Sood as the first choice. Talking about it, the actress, in a statement to India Forums, said, “I don’t anything about if I am replacing someone or not. But yes, I am in talks, but things haven’t finalised yet.” ALSO READ: Naagin 3: Karishma Tanna And Anita Hassanandani’s Fictional Drama To Go On Air From June 2

Till I know, things were looking good, but it has been a while since a conversation happened.” For the uninitiated, Asmita has garnered quite a bit of fan following as Meher from the show, Phir Bhi Na Maane Badtameez Dil.
