There are high changes that Colors’ popular drama series Naagin will not see Mouni Roy in the lead. Shocked? Well, so were we.

A few months ago, Ekta Kapoor exclusively told that Mouni will star in the 3rd instalment of the successful fictional series.

However, recently we snooped around Balaji Telefilms’ corridors and found out that the makers are auditioning for the lead heroine of Ekta’s Naagin 3.

So, what went wrong between Ekta and Mouni that a new face is being searched for the role?

Well, there is no difference in opinion or a rift here but it’s due to Mouni's packed schedule.

The sexy actress, who just shot for her debut film Gold with Akshay Kumar, will start shooting for her Alt Balaji web series Mehrunisa from next month which will end by January.

Come February and Mouni will start shooting for Dharma Productions’ Brahmastra with Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. The film is being directed by Ayaan Mukerji.

On the other hand, Naagin 3 will go on air from January and replace the on-going show, Chandrakanta. Unfortunately, Mouni will not be able to give time to Naagin 3 and hence a new face is being searched.

Our well-placed sources also inform that many popular television actresses have already auditioned for the role. But no one has been finalised yet.

There is no doubt that Mouni is going through the best phase of her life, professionally, but sadly she will not be able to do the show which brought Mouni's career in the limelight and made her a household name.
