When contacted, Irani confirmed Shweta's inclusion in the show. She said, "I have seen Shweta's work in Kasautii... and that is the reason I roped her in to play Queen Surmaya. According to me, she fits the bill perfectly."
However, Shweta, we hear, has not started off very well with this snaky re-entry. Our source said, “Shweta almost fainted when she saw a real snake on the sets. She was so petrified of the reptile that the shoot was held up for two hours till she had calmed down.” Oh dear, now this behaviour must have bitten the producers hard! As for you Shweta, didn’t you know that Naaginn will have, er, snakes?
