Karishma Tanna, who essayed the character
of Naagin Ruhi in Season 3, exited the show after her brief appearance for few
days. She then entertained the audience in another supernatural series Qayamat
Ki Raat with Vivek Dahiya. However, Karishma returned to Naagin 3 in February
to add a twist to the show. She played a negative character named Huzoor
(Hukoom’s right hand). The actress’ character recently died on the show.
Now, our source tells us that Karishma Tanna opted out from the show as she was unhappy with Surbhi Jyoti fans trolling her miserably after her re-entry, as they were of the opinion that Karishma should not hog the limelight when Surbhi has made the show a hit, all by herself. We also heard that Karishma got in touch with producer Ekta Kapoor and shared her disappointment and said she is not willing to continue. Understanding her side of the story, Ekta apparently gave her a green signal to take the decision of leaving the show. But to know her side of the story, we decided to get in touch with Karishma.
Talking about her exit, Karishma Tanna
said, "I had to leave the show as I had prior commitments. I have taken up
some shows and events which I couldn't have backed out from as the organisers
have already started advertising. I can’t be unprofessional."

When asked if Karishma was upset with the hatred she was receiving from Surbhi Jyoti’s fans, Tanna said, "You really think I have so much time to see whose fans are talking what? Trolling has never affected me. I feel I am too important in their lives that they talk n troll me. It should be a matter of pride (laughs).”
A quick recap for those unaware- Karishma
Tanna played the original Naagin Ruhi in the show. After her lover Vikrant
(Rajat Tokas) gets brutally killed in the first episode, she gets a new face
and identity as Bela (Surbhi Jyoti). She enters the family of the killers by
tying the knot with Maahir (Pearl V Puri) in order to take her revenge.
Meanwhile, Karishma is currently working in AltBalaji's Karle Tu Bhi Mohabbat
Season 3, along with Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar.
Coming to Karishma's exit, our source still maintains that it was indeed the trolling which forced Karishma to quit the show in just 3 days. Also, we wonder why would anyone take work assignments after having signed a show like Naagin 3.
