Mouni Roy, who played the role of the shape-shifting serpent Shivanya and her daughter Shivangi in the first two seasons of Naagin, will not be seen in the upcoming instalment. As the third season of Naagin is approaching, she took to Instagram and wrote a goodbye note thanking the team behind the show.
Mouni wrote in an Instagram post, “I have been holding onto this emotion for quite some time now. But it’s time to let go of something that holds a very large part of my heart. The show that gave me everything; Shivanya and Shivangi, embodying em was a privilege I was given by my @ektaravikapoor. Thank you maam, I shall always be thankful and they’ll always be a part of me. My little land of make belief ~ Naagin 1 & 2. Anyone who knows me knows how attached I am with what I love. So without much ado I bid adieu. Waiting eagerly for the next season telecast & wishing the new team all my love & luck. P.S this one’s gonna be epic too.”

The first season of Naagin was the highest rated show on TV which is why it was renewed for a second season. Naagin was a launching pad for Mouni and made her a household name. The show also starred Arjun Bijlani, Karanvir Bohra, Sudha Chandran and Adaa Khan in its initial two seasons.
The promo for the third season is out and B-Town is buzzing with rumours as to who will play the lead. Names like Surabhi Jyoti, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Tanya Sharma and Vindhya Tiwari have been making the circuit rounds.
The twenty second promo shows two men dragging a woman dressed in white towards the vicinity of a temple. After she’s dumped onto the ground, the next scene shows snakes crawling around her body and her eyes open to reveal her true nature. Meanwhile, Mouni Roy is heading to Bollywood and she’s slated to mark her debut in the Akshay Kumar starrer Gold.
Would audiences be ready to delve into a Naagin Universe without Mouni Roy? Will the new Naagin keep the audiences hooked onto the TV screens like before? Only time will tell.
