Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor is set to don the naagin avatar for a trilogy titled Nagin to be helmed 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 was excited to play the shape-shifting serpent immortalised by many veteran actors, most memorably by late 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,” the actor said in a statement.

The makers are planning to mount the trilogy with VFX and special effects. The last time Shraddha Kapoor played a character with supernatural powers was in Raj & DK’s hit horror-comedy Stree (2018). Director Vishal Furia is best known for his 2017 Marathi horror film Lapachhapi. He is currently helming Lapachhapi’s Hindi remake titled Chhori.
