Television producer Ekta Kapoor has been a flag bearer in a lot of ways. In a recent interview with a senior journalist, Ekta revealed that her most popular franchise on television, Naagin, was earlier supposed to be a film. Ekta revealed that she had actually thought of making Naagin into a film and she even went to Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra for it, but since they weren't convinced, she decided to bring it to television. 

Ekta said, "After Dirty Picture, I decided to make Naagin as a film. I decided to take that concept to two people. I went to Katrina Kaif and she told me 'after Dirty Picture, you want to make something path breaking' and I suggested her Naagin and she just looked at me and thought I had smoked something (laughs). She told me if I was joking to make something like this in today's time. Then, I went to PeeCee; it was at the time when she was going abroad. Both of them were not sure if that will work. Then I decided to make it a TV show."

Meanwhile, Ekta Kapoor has just launched Naagin 4 which stars Nia Sharma and Jasmin Bhasin in the lead role. The show is one of the most-watched shows on Indian television and is highly rated on TRP charts.

Smart people's can't really have crap like Naagin

That would have been fun. Something darker, more modern yet keeping to the traditional culture.
