Star Bharat’s new television show, ‘Shaitani Rasmein,’ is set to premiere on January 15. Starring Naqiyah Haji and Vibhav Roy, the series is quite a unique tale that the Indian audience hasn’t seen yet. In a recent interview, Naqiyah Haji revealed that she took inspiration from a popular character of an iconic American show for her debut role. 

The Times of India quoted the actor saying that she took inspiration from Nina Dobrev's character in ‘Vampire Diaries.’ She drew parallels between her role in the serial with Nina Dobrev’s characters. She said that these two characters have similar backstories. Naqiyah Haji said, “With fictional characters, supernatural powers, and a unique storyline, it bears a resemblance to the American show 'Vampire Diaries.' My character, Nikki, mirrors Nina Dobrev's character, where the line between good and bad becomes blurred. Similarly, Nikki enters a new world where the boundaries between good and bad are not so clear for her. Nina's character was adored by many, and I hope the viewers will shower the same love on Nikki and the show.”
