Former Bigg Boss contestant Karishma Tanna, who developed a love for reality shows lately, is all set to make her comeback to fiction genre after a gap of over three years.
The actress will be seen following Mouni Roy’s footsteps as she will become a naagin in Life OK’s much popular ‘Nagarjun’.
Tanna, who is quite excited to be a part of the show, will be playing the antagonist seeking revenge from Astika (played by Nikitin Dheer) in the show.
This will be the first time Karishma will be seen as a naagin and confessed that she has always found such roles interesting.
“Audience have taken a liking for supernatural and fantasy shows. The genre is doing well on the small screen and I wanted to get into that mould”, Karishma told a leading daily.
Apart from Mouni, actresses Adaa Khan, Debina Bonnerjee and Priyal Gor too have been seen in similar roles on the small screen.
Talking about her absence from the daily soaps for a long hiatus, Karishma Tanna says she was looking for substantial roles to come her way. Moreover, the actress also claimed that many have assumed that she wasn’t interested in doing daily soaps and was more inclined towards reality shows.
Karishma was seen in Bigg Boss season 8, later she also participated in dance based reality show Nach Baliye 7 with ex-beau Upen Patel. The two even went to host MTV Love School as well.
While Karishma’s love affair with Upen became a talk of the town after the two got engaged on the national TV, their relationship ended on a sour note lately.
Quizzed about her split, the actress refused to talk about it and stated that she wants to focus on her career.
Currently, Karishma Tanna is seen in popular celeb based dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikkha Jaa 9’ as a contestant.
