Shraddha Kapoor's Naagin remake to have no iconic songs remade, reveals filmmaker Nikhil Dwivedi

The announcement of the remake of Naagin has left the audience quite excited, especially when the original one starred the late actor Sridevi, and the remake will see gorgeous Shraddha Kapoor step into her shoes. Talking about how he came up with the concept of this remake, filmmaker Nikhil Dwivedi told a leading website, "I’ve always wondered why we don’t have our own superhero and superheroine concept, which we can give out from our traditional stories. That’s when I got thinking – ‘let me see which is the most organic superhero or heroine power that originates from our own folklore’. Immediately, the ichchadhari naagin with the shape-shifting power that can take any form came to me."

 
 
Why he thought Shraddha was perfect for the role, he added, "Right from day 1, my focus was always Shraddha. She is one of the very few actresses who can play the girl next door and the next moment, turn into a very sensuous woman. She was our first choice. There also remains an interesting fact. When I met Shraddha for the very first time, she told me that when the news of Nagin broke out, that we will be making it – she thought to herself that I hope the makers approach me because I have grown up watching it. I never got any kind of hint from anybody from all ecosystems. I approached her all on my own and she was there, waiting for someone to contact her for Nagin." However, Nikhil refuses to have any iconic songs from the old film in this one. Stay tuned with us for more latest updates on Bollywood.
