Ekta Kapoor Says Mouni Roy Starrer ‘Naagin 2’ Was Bit Of A Mess Up

Darpan News Desk IANS, 18 May, 2019
  • Ekta Kapoor Says Mouni Roy Starrer ‘Naagin 2’ Was Bit Of A Mess Up

Producer Ekta Kapoor has entertained the audience with three seasons of "Naagin", but she admits that the second installment of the supernatural show was a "bit of a mess up".


When the first season of the show with actresses Mouni Roy and Adaa Khan fronting the cast of "Naagin" premiered in the last quarter of 2015, it managed to slither its way up to the top spot.


After a successful run, it returned with two more seasons. While its third season will soon go off air, Ekta is ready with two more shows -- second season of "Kawach" and "Bepanah Pyaarr".


"'Kawach' is the second season of a show with a very popular first season. This is probably the most exciting season of any of the shows that I have done. I think I usually mess up in the second season," Ekta told the media here on Wednesday.


"I think 'Naagin 1' was great, 'Naagin 2' was a bit of a mess up and 'Naagin 3' picked up again."


After its second season, the third one got a new story and cast, including actors like Karishma Tanna, Anita Hassanandani, Surbhi Jyoti, Pearl V Puri, Rajat Tokas and Rakshanda Khan.


On the new season of "Kawach", she said: "It has got nothing to do with the first season. It deals with occult. I know that it's pretty abused.... We will play a positive story behind it."


"Occult, horror and spirits... I feel are superb things for me to do. I actually love doing them," added Ekta, who has backed projects, including the popular horror film "Ragini MMS".


"Bepanah Pyaarr", on the other hand, is a "love story written in a page turning thriller way".


"From the time it begins till the 15th episode... there's an absolute turn after the 15th episode. It's probably the most riveting story I have done in a long time," said Ekta, fondly known as the czarina of TV.


"Television has seen supernatural, love stories...television misses a nice fiction thriller that makes you come back day after day to see what's going to happen next," she added.


It's also interesting for her because it's the first show that she has done from a man's point of view.


"He (male protagonist played by Pearl V. Puri) goes through three phases and has three women in different stages of his life," said the producer of saas-bahu dramas like "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" and "Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii".


"Kawach Mahashivratri" and "Bepanah Pyaarr" will soon premiere on Colors channel.
