Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor will soon begin shooting for Naagin. Back in 2020, it was declared that Shraddha has come onboard Nikhil Dwivedi's backed trilogy and will be essaying a shapeshifting serpent.
Set to be directed by Chhorri director Vishal Furia, the filmmaker plans on starting shoot this summer. As per media updates, the VFX-heavy movie is presently in pre-production. "We need specific locations for Naagin, as the energy of (shooting) in natural locales has an effect on the actors’ performance,” revealed Furia.
The filmmaker also disclosed that Shraddha loved the concept and it did not take too long for her to come onboard. "Shraddha liked the concept and came on board after just one meeting. We have had a few sittings over the script and looks. She is loving the process. We intend to have workshops for Naagin. It is an unusual character and will need a lot of prep."
Furia also credited producer Nikhil Dwivedi for the concept of Naagin. “I come from a background of VFX, so anything that has this level of special effects, excites me," told Furia.
