For actor Adaa Khan, 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 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. I feel that doing 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 have been praised for the way I looked on the show. But the best [compliment] was when people said that I looked like Sridevi. 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.
