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."
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.@Nikhil_Dwivedi @FuriaVishal @saffronbrdmedia— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) October 28, 2020
