There had been talks of Nikhil Dwivedi working on a next movie centred around a female superhero character for a while now. However, today it has been announced that he will bring the Super Natural Powers of the “Icchadhari Nagin” to the big screen once again. The movies will showcase some very exciting Visual Effects to highlight the superpowers.
While the name of the lead has been kept under wraps, the three-film franchise will be directed by Vishal Furia. Vishal had directed the web series, Criminal Justice which had Vikrant Messey and Marathi superhit Lapachhapi, Vishal is also helming the Hindi remake of Lapachhapi, titled Chhori.
Known for his vision, Nikhil has decided to mount his three-film Nagin franchise on a monumental scale. The film will feature top stars and will be a love story, heavy on VFX and special effects. He has always been one of the most commercial makers in Bollywood and with Nagin too, it will be no different. He wants to set a different standard for mytho-dramas, designing this project on an international scale. Nikhil is already in talks with an A-list heroine to step into the primary role, the announcement of which will be made official once everything is locked.
Previously too, Bollywood films based on ichchadhari nagins have worked wonderfully well at the box office. Sridevi’s Nagina and Nigahen were the last ones to have hit the marquee. Even, the TV series has recorded terrifically high TRPs, proving the pan India reach and consumption of such content. And now, with him announcing his Nagin trilogy, anticipation has ready sky-rocketed.
