I am a fan of the hot Naagin ladies: Dheeraj Dhoopar excited to play a shape shifting serpent in 'Naagin 5'


Just yesterday the makers of Ekta Kapoo's supernatural show Naagin 5 unveiled the promo. The latest promo featured a new Naagin with her face covered with serpents. With the eyes of the actress visible, fans of the supernatural thriller were quick to judge that she is none other than Hina Khan. Previously, reports suggested that Hina, who worked in Ekta's Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 as Komolika, was in talks to frontline Naagin 5. Now, actor Dheeraj Dhoopar has also confirmed being a part of the show. 

"Naagin has emerged as a big brand and I didn’t think twice before giving my nod. I am a fan of the hot Naagin ladies... my favourite part of the show is watching them dance," Dheeraj joked as confirmed the news with a leading daily.

When asked will he be shaking a leg with the Naagins too, the actor said, "I hope so, it will be a dream come true." Vinny Arora, Dheeraj's actress-wife is also pretty excited about Dheeraj joining the show. Further, Dheeraj opened up on challenges of being a part of such a show. "It’s going to be challenging because I have only played normal, human characters till now. Also, for a VFX-heavy show like Naagin, you have to pretend act with props, which are later enhanced or replaced on the edit table, so that will be new," he said.

Dheeraj revealed that he has begun prepping for the show since it is likely to go on floors next month. "Since I have a lean frame, I won’t have to work much on my physical appearance. But since I will be shooting for the two shows simultaneously, I’ll have to be conscious to ensure my body language is distinctly different. I am watching a lot of films from the era too," the Kundali Bhagya actor told.

When asked about who the new Naagin is, Dheeraj insisted on not knowing about it while heaping praise for Ekta and the production house. "I trust the production house implicitly and I love Ekta; whatever I am is because of her. So far, I have not been informed about who else will be a part of the show or even the arc of my character. It will all unfold as we go along. I am looking forward to the shoot."
