Ever since Ekta Kapoor has made the official announcement regarding the fifth instalment of her ‘Naagin’ franchise, there have been multiple assumptions and speculations of who will be the lead cast in the show. According to latest reports, television divas Hina Khan and Surbhi Chandna have been apparently shortlisted as the leads.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, a source was quoted saying as, “Ekta has apparently finalised Surbhi Chandna, ‘Ishqbaaz’ fame and Hina Khan to play Naagins in the fifth season. They were looking for a fresh yet famous face to carry on the Naagin legacy and both these ladies enjoy a massive social media following and are extremely famous amongst the Indian audiences.”

In an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Twitter, Hina Khan was asked about ‘Naagin 5’. One user wrote, “Naagin k bary me kia khichdi pakk rhi ha? #AskHina (What’s cooking about Naagin).” To this, the on-screen Komolika replied, “Pata nahi aap bataao (I don’t know, you tell me).”

Ekta had taken to her Instagram handle to share with her audience why she scrapped ‘Naagin 4’. Ekta also revealed that she has let her cast down this time by working less on the script, “I want to thank all my actors, Nia, Anita, Vijayendra and Jasmin. You guys did a brilliant job. If anything, I have let you all down. I think we worked a little less on the script this season. It was mediocre and I promise we will do better this time. Hope all of you (the audience) will come back. We want to make something special and amazing. We are working hard and diligently for the new season.”

Let’s hope Ekta makes the official announcement regarding the cast as well.
