Pearl V Puri enjoys a massive fan-following but during the lockdown the actor has been unable to entertain them on the small screen. So, we recently connected with Pearl for an elaborate video chat. The first part of it, we brought to you a few days back, and now we are here with Part 2.
We spoke to Pearl about the Naagin franchise and the kind of pressure he felt while doing the third season of the show. The actor replied, "It's true that there was a lot of pressure on me as two seasons were already very successful and Ekta pays a lot of attention to Naagin. It's very close to her heart and now my heart also. So, when you become a part of a hit franchise you always want it to be better than the previous one. And I tried my best to do that as I didn't want the audience to say, 'pehle wala better tha', warna bada hurt hota hai."
Pearl further added that how he felt the show will be all about Naagins but it turned out to be a love story. "Thankfully, the audience gave a lot of love to my character Maahir and the best part was I got to play so many characters in the same show. When I initially started shooting, I thought it would be all about Naagin but ultimately it was a love story," said Pearl.
Pearl's chemistry with co-star Surbhi Jyoti is loved by the audience, even today. Talking about it, he added, "Surbhi is such a sweetheart and it was lovely working with her. I would love to work with her again. We bonded really well and she is a good friend of mine now."
We also asked him if he will be open to doing Naagin 5, if it is offered to him and he said, "I would love to do it. It's a beautiful concept and due to Naagin, I have received so much love and popularity, how can I say no?"
