However, their conjugal bliss is rudely interrupted by a group of rowdies who kill Rajat Tokas and sexually molest and kill Karishma. Karishma Tanna reincarnates as Anita Hassanandani to take revenge from the group.

The trailer

The chemistry between Rajat Tokas and Karishma Tanna is superb, but it is Tokas who has stolen the thunder from Karishma. He is there only for a few seconds but has left a mark in the minds of the viewers. Anita is also visible in the promo for a few seconds but is unable to make an impression.

However, viewers are of the opinion that the promo could have shown a bit more of Surbhi Jyoti whose character seems to be much in lines of Shivaya i.e., Mouni Roy. The Shiva temple in the background also looks magnificent.

"Naagin 3" will be the third season of the series and is being eagerly awaited by its fans. The earlier version of the series featured Adaa Khan and Mouni Roy as the Nagin's.

The fans were disappointed when they got the news that the actors have bid farewell to series and a new cast will be seen in the third season. However after names such as Rajat Tokas, Anita Hassanandani, Karishma Tanna and Surbhi Jyoti were associated with the serial, it created a big buzz among fans who are now eagerly awaiting the show.

The music and the voice over were same, and it was Rajat who stole the thunder from the main character. Twitter has been flooded with tweets asking Ekta Kapoor to give a meatier role for Rajat. The Naagins look super hot and are oozing with oomph. Both Karishma and Anita are being talked about; it is Surbhi who is missing from the rushes except a few seconds.

Surbhi Jyoti of “Qubool Hai” fame will be replacing Mouni Roy, but it must be seen if the audience will accept this change. However unconfirmed reports reveal that both Mouni and Adaa were recently spotted on the sets of "Naagin 3."
