The day begins with a great piece of news for all Shraddha Kapoor fans as the actress is all set to play Bollywood's iconic role of a shapeshifting serpent in Nikhil Dwivedi's backed trilogy. Yes, taking to her Twitter handle, Shraddha shared the news. Shraddha is all set to step into the world of 'Naagin' as she has said yes to a three-film series based on the shape-shifting snake. Previously, many Bollywood stars like Sridevi, Rekha, Reena Roy and more have played similar roles of Naagin in Indian films. Now, Shraddha will be joining the likes of the iconic stars as a new-age Naagin. 

On Twitter, Shraddha shared the news about taking on the role of a new-age Naagin, Shraddha wrote that she is beyond delighted to be playing the iconic role on the big screen. She further mentioned that she has seen Sridevi in films like Nagina and Nigaahen and hence, always wanted to do something similar on the silver screen. The Stree star was beyond excited to be a part of the three-film series that will star her as the shape-shifting serpent. As per the report, Shraddha's film will have exciting visual effects and will be a trilogy. 

Not just this, the report claimed that the film will be helmed by Vishal Furia, who has been known for his Marathi film, Lapachhapi. Reportedly, Shraddha will be playing the role of a naagin in a story that will essentially be a love story. It will be bankrolled by Nikhil Dwivedi. Talking about it, Shraddha said, "It’s an absolute delight to play a 'naagin' on screen. I have grown up watching, admiring and idolising Sridevi ma’am in 'Nagina' and 'Nigahen' and always wanted to play a similar role that is rooted in Indian folklore."

Shradda is a much much better actress than Sridevi so hopefully this will be the best nagin film to date

Are you for real? I think most people would class Sridevi as iconic, Shraddha’s name can’t even be i the same sentence let alone talk about talent

Don't even compare shraddha to Rekha wat an insult

Let's wait for the truth regarding her involvement in drugs consumption. Let NCB declare it first . But yes if these celebrities are into all this then it should come out . We can't promote such things in our society . When you are a public figure, you need to be responsible . I hope the truth will come out.

She. Is a naagin already no need for special effects bet she can change form with special effects and I actually saw it when she was summoned. And the Bollywood is is filled with nags and naagin who are shape shifters

I wish Shraddha will be in Naagin Season 6 and I know she can beat Morning Roy and Surbhi Jyoti.

For your kind information, she has not consumed drugs. It is a wrong news. NCB said nothing further. Guys, drugs consume karna yeh bohat bada ilzaam hai. Think before your speak. You have no proof. She is someone's daughter. Someone's friend. Agar aap logo pe yeh ilzaam lagaya vo bhi bina proof ke toh aap logo ko bura nahi lagenga?

Good to see that bollywood celebs are doing roles what they actually are but a druggy naagin would have been better for this 2 faced snake and demon

So I guessed it right that shraddha was at Nikhil Dwivedi's office bcz she is doing the naagin trilogy. As there were rumours doing rounds that he is making Naagin film.. It will be amazing to see shraddha as naagin. Well there were Deepika, Alia, Disha, Kiara and Tara in the race too but Shraddha is the best choice. She will nail it. God bless.
