Dheeraj Dhoopar has recently confirmed that he will be starring in Naagin 5. The Ekta Kapoor show also stars Hina Khan in the lead role as the central actress in the show. Recent reports have revealed that Dheeraj will play the role of a shape-shifting serpent. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror Dheeraj said, "Naagin has emerged as a big brand and I didn't think twice before giving my nod. I am a fan of the hot Naagin ladies... my favorite part of the show is watching them dance."
The actor has said that he thinks playing a role of a supernatural serpent will have its own new challenges. He said, "For a VFX-heavy show like Naagin, you have to pretend act with props, which are later enhanced or replaced on the edit table."
The actor has also starred in hit Hindi tv shows like Sasural Simar Ka. He recently appeared in the highly popular show Kundali Bhagya. In the show Dheeraj plays the flamboyant cricketer Karan Luthra. Dheeraj has confirmed that he will be doing both Naagin 5 and Kundali Bhagya at the same time.
"Since I have a lean frame, I won’t have to work much on my physical appearance. But since I will be shooting for the two shows simultaneously. I'll have to be conscious to ensure my body language is distinctly different. I am watching a lot of films from the era too," he added
He concluded saying, "I trust the production house implicitly and I love Ekta; whatever I am is because of her. So far I have not been informed about who else will be a part of the show or even the arc of my character. It will all unfold as we go along. I am looking forward to the shoot."
