Hina said that she is not interested in doing television shows at the moment. She said, “I had made it pretty clear months ago that I don't want to do television for a while. I still stick to it. Ideally, I didn't want to do the three episodic thing. I wasn't sure whether I should do it as I am exploring a different space. I really can't say no to Ekta and I really really respect her a lot.”

Hina said that's why she didn’t refuse the Naagin 5. Hina revealed that because of Ekta Kapoor she couldn’t say no to her. She said, “When she (Ekta) called me herself I couldn't say no. Had it been somebody else, I am openly saying I would have said no. But it was Ekta so I could not. I have a lot of respect for that lady. She is like an inspiration to me.”

She further said that “I don’t want to do television. I was also offered Naagin 4 as well. Obviously main karna nahi chahti hoon, nahi toh I would have done it but I don't want to do TV.”


During the chat, Hina also told that Ekta approached her to launch the show that’s why she nodded.

“I got such an overwhelming response from you all. Naagin is a different show. All these girls are so hot. I was quite nervous and skeptical. I feel blessed that I have reached a certain level that I have been considered to launch a show. I have only gratitude and I am blessed that way as I was given such a huge responsibility."
