Whenever we talk about villain characters on the small screen, Rakshanda Khan’s name tops the list. From playing the grey-shaded character of Mallika Seth in Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin to the vicious Tanya Irani in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Rakshanda Khan is loved for her negative roles. And currently, Rakshanda Khan is essaying the role of Sumitra in Colors’ supernatural show Naagin 3 and although we have seen Rakshanda play negative roles in a couple of shows but with Naagin 3, she has challenged herself as this role is a tad bit different than her previous roles. In an interview, Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin actor Rakshanda Khan said, “My negative characters in my earlier shows had a strong emotional reason for what they were. But in Naagin, Sumitra has nothing else but to satisfy her greed. This is the reason why I cannot pull things out of my reservoir as a person which I could for my earlier characters. But over here, she is greedy to the extent that she does not consider any form of bond to be more important for her in life. What is important is her vision and anyone that comes in her way is not important.”

Prior to Naagin 3, Rakshanda was essaying the role of Mohini in Brahmarakshas and the actress feels that while the character of Mohini was negative, Sumitra is like the baap of all negative characters that she has played till date. “When I took up the role of Mohini in Brahmarakshas, I felt that I had taken up something which was really negative. But now, I feel like Sumita is the Head Mistress in the school where Mohini was in the Kindergarten (smiles). There is just no stopping her. She just goes to any level she wants. Everytime I feel that she has reached the zenith of whatever bad can be done, there is something which is more evil that gets cooked up. This is by far the most bad-ass character that can be played by an actor,” Rakshanda said.

But given the enormous success of Naagin 3, Rakshanda feels lucky to be part of the show and says that it feels amazing to be part of a show that has not been dethroned for more than a week. “It is incredible to be part of a show which has not been dethroned for more than a week since it has gone on air. We have always been up there, and made sure that no show has come dangerously close to Naagin,” she shared.
