Ekta revealed, "Naagin 4 is going to be getting a fantastic end because you can't start a story from the middle. You have to end it so that a new one can begin. So we are going to be ending Naagin 4 with a 4-episode fantastic finale and then getting into Naagin 5 immediately."

Ekta continued, "Now what I really have to say about the actors is Nia (Sharma), Anita (Hassanandani), Vijayendra (Kumeria), Jasmin (Bhasin), you guys have been outstanding. You guys have done a brilliant job. If anyone has led you guys on, it has been because I worked a little less on the story this time. So I am trying my best to do my best." Naagin 4: Jasmin Bhasin's Character Comes to an Abrupt End in Ekta Kapoor's Supernatural Show.
