She was also looking for a show with good content.

"As an actor, to play the same role again and gets a little stagnant. We have to have something interesting in a character to act. As far as films are concerned, you do it for three-four months and then you are out of the character.

"In shows, you are going on (playing the same character) for at least one year. When I got 'Naagin', I thought that it was a good show with good TRPs and good fan following so, I thought I should be doing this. Hence, I took it up," said

This will be her second time as a "naagin".

"I had done a cameo in 'Naagarjuna - Ek Yoddha'. But that is absolutely different from this," she said.

On her character in the upcoming Colors show, she said: "I will play an 'Ichchadhari Naagin' who is a shape-shifter. She has come for revenge. I have hardly had any scenes with the other 'naagin' Anita (Hassanandani) but as far as other people are concerned, they are very nice."

"It's very important for actors to be compatible because you are working with them for 12 hours," she added.
