Bollywood Actress Shraddha Kapoor has some exciting news for her fans. The Baghi actress will be seen shedding her girl-next-door persona, and getting into the skin of a ‘naagin‘ for a three-part film series produced by Nikhil Dwivedi.
Taking to Twitter to share the news, Shraddha wrote, It’s an absolute delight for me to play a Naagin on screen. I have grown up watching, admiring and idolising Sridevi ma’am’s Nagina and Nigahen and have always wanted to play a similar role rooted in Indian traditional folklore.
It sure will be interesting to see what Shraddha Kapoor brings to the table as a shape-shifting serpent. The trilogy will be helmed by Vishal Furia, who directed the Marathi horror film Lapachhapi (2017).
When it comes to ‘icchhadari naagins‘ Ekta Kapoor‘s Naagin TV series has been quite popular amongst fans of the folklore for quite a few years. Actresses like Karishma Tanna and Anita Hassanandani, amongst several others, have been part of the fantasy drama. On the screen cinema, Reena Roy, Rekha, and Sridevi have portrayed shape-shifting serpents.
