New Delhi, October 29, 2020: Shraddha Kapoor is set to become Naagin. This is huge considering she follows in the footsteps of magical Sridevi and Rekha and Reena Roy.
Naagin will be a trilogy and will be directed by award-winning filmmaker Vishal Furia. The three-film series was announced this Wednesday.
Shraddha Kapoor in a statement said that:
“It’s an absolute delight for me to play a Naagin on screen. I have grown up watching, admiring and idolizing Sridevi ma’am’s Nagina and Nigahen and always wanted to play a similar role rooted in Indian traditional folklore. It’s like playing an iconic character, which has always been so fascinating for the audience.”
Director Vishal Furia welcomed Shraddha on board the film and tweeted:
“It will be lovely to direct you as ‘Nagin’.. you will totally rock it coz of your belief.. together we’ll create a totally magical ‘Indian’ story of an ‘Indian’ female mythical super-character.. welcome aboard.”
