Zeeshan Khan is currently playing the antagonist, a shape-shifting mongoose aka nevla Rainaksh, in Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural thriller series Naagin 6.
After his short-lived stint in Bigg Boss OTT, actor Zeeshan Khan decided to try his luck at another reality show and entered Kangana Ranaut ’s celebrity prison Lock Upp as a wild card contestant. However, he was shown the doors after he physically assaulted fellow kaidi Azma Fallah , who insulted his girlfriend Reyhna Pandit on the show. Well, after his eviction from Lock Upp, the actor was roped in to play the role of the antagonist, a nevla named Rainaksh, in Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural thriller series Naagin 6.
In a recent chat with ETimes, Zeeshan opened up about the love he is receiving for his role of a shape-shifting mongoose. He was quoted saying, “I can't express how grateful I am for the kind of love I have been receiving, it's very overwhelming. I have wanted this kind of a role for a very long time and now that I have it, I feel blessed that I am able to do justice to the character. Even though my character is negative it has made place in the hearts of the audience in such a short span of time.”
He went on to add, “Lastly, I just want to add that I am grateful to Ekta Ma'am for giving me this opportunity and I am what I am because of the fans so keep showering me with all the love.” Starring Tejasswi Prakash in the lead as Sarvashreshth Shesh Naagin and her Bigg Boss 15 co-star Simba Nagpal as her on-screen love interest, Naagin 6 is one of the most popular series on television.
