After the success of the previous five seasons of the supernatural revenge drama Naagin, producer Ekta Kapoor is set to launch Naagin 6 in a few days from now. While Bigg Boss 15 winner Tejasswi Prakash and co-contestant Simba Nagpal are set to play the lead pair on the show, actress Mahekk Chahal will also be seen in the lead role.
Chahal is playing the role of a shape-shifting serpent on Naagin 6 and she is super charged up about her character. “I am super excited. You know as kids, boys wanted to be Spider-Man and Superman, and likewise girls wanted to be superwoman. So, I am really looking forward to this. My first launch into TV is with this show. I did Kavach... Kaali Shaktiyon Se in the past, but that was only for a couple of weeks,” the actress told a publication.
When asked about her favourite Naagin from the previous seasons of the show, Chahal said, “I think it is Mouni (Roy) because she kind of set the stage for everybody, as all the other Naagins came after her. I think she just put the whole base there, made it so glamorous, did it with such ease, did it very classy, and that girl is also very classy. So, she will always remain my favourite Naagin.”
The actress also revealed that the Sridevi-starrer Nagina (1986) is her favourite film in the genre. “She has always been my favourite and that goes without saying. Whenever you think of this character, the first person who comes to your mind is her. It was so appreciated at that time,” she added.
Chahal happily accepted to have taken inspiration from Sridevi’s iconic performance for her show Naagin 6. “Obviously you take the inspiration. Like I said, Mouni set the tone, but she did it prior to that and she is such a great artist and did it with so much glamour. Even if we get 5 to 10 percent of what she did that will be great. The way she carried herself, the way she looked in the movie, her eyes, obviously you try to think about that. Like a lot of the time, I do something, and my director says, ‘no Mehekk, make the eyes stronger’, and then I automatically think about her,” she signed off.
Naagin 6 premieres on February 12 on Colors.
