After the blockbuster success of Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Veere Di Wedding, producer Nikhil Dwivedi is all set to produce an all-female superhero trilogy featuring nagins. The movies will be based on folklore and a best-selling book.

The films are set to be a modern take on the concept of ‘Ichadhari Nagin’ (shape-shifting serpent) who wield superpowers.

As of now, no actor has boarded the project. Nikhil Dwivedi is still on the lookout for ‘the perfect heroine’. If all goes well, India will get its first female-led superhero film.

On the work front, Nikhil has his hands full as he is also bankrolling the highly-anticipated Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3. He is co-producing the film with Arbaaz Khan and Salman Khan Films.

Helmed by Prabhudheva and featuring Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sudeep and debutante Saiee Manjrekar, Dabangg 3 is slated for a December 20 release.
