For ac­tor Adaa Khan (far left), the TV show Naa­gin and its se­quel hold a spe­cial place in her heart. The rea­son is not just that the shows were a hit, but also be­cause her look in the se­ri­als was com­pared to that of Sridevi (left) in the 1986 movie Nag­ina.

“The re­sponse to Naa­gin and Naa­gin 2 was en­cour­ag­ing for all of us,” says Adaa. “That the au­di­ence loved my por­trayal of She­sha added to my hap­pi­ness. I en­joyed play­ing the char­ac­ter, as it had sev­eral lay­ers to it. The show has been a turn­ing point in my ca­reer.”

The Am­rit Manthan ac­tor also got sev­eral com­pli­ments for the way she looked in the se­ri­als. Many have com­pared her look in Naa­gin to that of ac­tor Sridevi in Nag­ina. “I am a huge Sridevi fan, so get­ting such com­pli­ments made me feel re­ally spe­cial,” says Adaa.

Naa­gin 2 re­cently ended and Adaa says that she will miss her co-stars from the show — work­ing to­gether for so long, they re­ally be­came close to each other. “Work­ing with Mouni (Roy) and Sudha Chan­dran was, in a word, won­der­ful. We all used to have so much fun on the sets and now I am miss­ing that al­ready. I feel Naa­gin was one show where ev­ery­one had put in a lot of hard work and that helped in mak­ing the show such a suc­cess,” says Adaa.
