Zee TV has announced a new show, ‘Naagin - Waadon Ki Agniparikshaa’, which is an interesting saga of ‘ichadhari’. The show premiered on the channel on October 5 in the time slot of 8.30 pm.
The show has been created by AK Films that has worked on other soaps like ‘Rabba Ishq Na Hove’ and ‘Mehndi Tere Naam Ki’ in the past.
Launching the new show, Punit Goenka, Business Head, Zee TV, said, “The past one and half years has seen Zee TV recover its sheen and glory through an excellent mix of programming and marketing. After meticulously conquering weekdays, Zee TV takes one more step towards strengthening the weekend slot. Shows like ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’, ‘Antakshari’, ‘Fun on the Run’ have created an audience for themselves, which has encouraged us to extend the weekend slot.”
Goenka further said, “We have always believed in creating subjects in viewers’ interest. The concept of ‘naaginn’ and its unfamiliarity with the masses has always been of intrigue for the Indian audiences, and I am confident that this show would largely appeal to them.”
The show is set in a Rajasthani background, and has Shayantani Ghosh playing the lead protagonist, along with Aroona Irani, Ali Hasan, Siddhart Dhawan and Shabaaz Khan.
‘Naagin - Waadon Ki Agniparikshaa’ is the tale of an ‘ichadhari naaginn’ who transforms herself to take revenge from the Rathod family that had killed her parents for attaining the invaluable ‘naagmani’. She gets married in the same family but her duty as a wife comes in between her revenge and her love for her husband.
