One of the highest TRP rated television shows in the Indian industry, Naagin 5 is already making headlines. As Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural franchise enters its 5th season, the audience will get to see some popular talented faces. Naagin 5 stars Mohit Malhotra, Hina Khan, and Dheeraj Dhoopar in the lead roles. So it is only natural that the excitement level for this season is unlike any other.
Recently in an interview with Koimoi actor Mohit Malhotra shared his experience of working with Hina Khan. The actor also talked about the criticism supernatural shows receive in India.
On Being Part of Naagin 5 franchise
Honestly, I was really excited when I heard that I am doing Naagin 5, I was elated. Naagin is one of the successful franchises of our country. It’s India’s favorite show and it was a great opportunity. I was super ecstatic to be a part of this franchise.
On asked whether he felt pressurized considering the last season’s drop in rating, Mohit said: Absolutely not. Yes, of course, the cast this time is more powerful than last season. But last season didn’t work because of the lockdown which was a problem globally, not just here. I would not say that didn’t work out. Having said that, as the new normal started coming in and the lockdown has sort of opened up, I feel people are looking up for more entertainment. Naagin 5 has come at the right time and with this power-packed cast, we will do more wonders to this. It will be one of the highest-rated seasons.
On criticism of supernatural shows like Naagin 5
I don’t feel there’s a lot of criticism around Naagin. If the show wasn’t watched by people of the country, season 5 would not have been made. This is the only show that will go down in history for making so many seasons. It is a cult show. I feel people enjoy it. They love this genre. It’s super interesting to watch these special dramas and special effects that take place in the show. It takes the viewers to the sci-fi zone.
Mohit also talked about his magical chemistry with Hina Khan. Both the actors have worked in Hacked which was a dark thriller. The actor says that his friendship with Hina Khan translates onscreen; so the bond creates magic when they’re together. Mohit also said that he is confident “people would love it.”
Naagin 5 comes at a time when the entire country is battling the coronavirus pandemic. While shooting restrictions have been lifted, makers are required to follow strict safety guidelines. Talking about the precaution on sets, Mohit said: “I am very glad that the channel and production house have taken the utmost safety precautions. The temperatures and pulses are checked before anyone enters the sets. People around us are wearing the PPE kits. Personally, I also try to be safer. I keep drinking hot water and kadha. I think Kadha has become one of my favorite drinks lately.”
Message to Naagin 5 fans
Naagin 5 is one of the most anticipated shows on Indian television. The show has been all the rage ever since the first teaser dropped. In his message to diehard Naagin fans, Mohit said: “It’s going to be more exciting this season. You will be experiencing a new world of Naagin. You will be ecstatic to see the new version that has been created now. There will be more entertainment, more drama, and more twists and turns. Watch out for this more powerful and entertaining Naagin 5 season!”
