Shraddha Kapoor to play Bollywood's newest 'Nagin'
Vishal Furia will direct the film to be produced by Nikhil Dwivedi.
Shraddha Kapoor has signed her next biggie - a three film series based on the shape-shifting ‘Nagin’. Yes, the gorgeous heroine is all set to step in as Bollywood's newest ‘Nagin’, a role that has been essayed by several top actresses in the past.
Previously, Vyjayanthimala, Reena Roy, Rekha and Sridevi have played similar roles. In fact, Sridevi's role as an ‘ichhadhaari nagin’ in Nagina and Nigahen was a hit.
Shraddha shares, "It's an absolute delight for me to play a 'Nagin' on screen. I have grown up watching, admiring and idolising Sridevi'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."
Nagin will be directed by Vishal Furia and produced by Nikhil Dwivedi under the banner of Saffron Broadcast & Media Ltd. The date of the release is yet to be decided.
