Mumbai: Actress Adaa Khan is back in the sixth edition of Naagin series produced by Ekta Kapoor. Here, she will be seen in a special appearance. Adaa had earlier played Shesha, Kaali Naagin, Ruchika and Takshika in the first two seasons of the hit TV show.
“I have already shot for this special episode. It is always amazing to be back as Shesha. It’s a beautiful feeling filled with nostalgia and more than me, fans were excited to have me back. My Instagram is filled with messages, collage of Shesha’s famous dialogues and photo edits,” says Adaa, who was seen as a participant in Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 10.
The actor, who recently worked on an OTT project, is keen on doing “power-packed roles” on TV. She is also willing to be part of non-fiction shows.
“I love powerful characters, especially parts that have some impact. Why just fiction, I am also interested in non-fiction shows. I always wanted to do Khatron Ke Khiladi, so when I got the opportunity, I lapped it up. I enjoyed the journey and therefore, was satisfied with that,” she adds.
On the changing waves in daily soaps in terms of content and quality, Adaa says every time there is a new phase that is coming. “There was a phase of saas-bahu drama, then came the time of supernatural shows, and now it’s about real stories and unique approaches. At the end of the day, everything depends on how much the audience is able to connect. So, I think it’s just more about the way of life and how our society functions,” says the actor.
Meanwhile, her debut OTT film Shubh Mangal Mein Dangal has just released. There are two other projects lined up.
“In TV, we shoot everyday and we don’t know how long the show will go on. Obviously, I want it to last for years and years. When it comes to OTT, you just have either a month or two-month-long shoot. It’s a finite series,” explains the actor, talking about the difference between both the mediums.
Adaa likes period dramas and fantasy shows on OTT. “I enjoy such shows. And of course comedy is also my favourite. I don’t like shows that are negative or make me anxious,” says the actress, who became a household name after playing Akashi in the TV show Behenein.
The actor is quite active on social media but hardly seen socialising. She does not party a lot or attend many events.
“Well, I’m an introvert and I think over the years everybody knows that. I am really not a social person and like to stay indoors when I am not working. I do meet friends for coffee. And only if it is someone very close to me, I would just sit in the party, but just attend for some time and then come back home. That’s how I am,” she signs off.
