Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor to play naagin avatar for a trilogy titled Nagin to be directed by Vishal Furia. The film, bankrolled by Nikhil Dwivedi, is being described as a love story.
Shraddha, who was last seen in Tiger Shroff-led Baaghi 3 earlier this year, said she is excited to play the shape-shifting serpent immortalised by many veteran actors, most memorably by late actress Sridevi.
“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 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,” said Shradha.
