Ekta Kapoor to remake cult film ‘Nagin’
TV and film producer Ekta Kapoor, who has bought the rights of the yesteryear blockbuster film ‘Nagin’ is remaking the Jeetendra – Reena Roy starrer with a contemporary feel to it.
“We are remaking ‘Nagin’ but it will be set in today’s time. It will have a contemporary feel considering the sensibilities of today’s audience. We are actively working on the script and it would take three-four months,” a source close to the project said.
‘Nagin’, which released in 1976 starred bigwigs like Sunil Dutt, Feroz Khan, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan, Vinod Mehra, Rekha, Mumtaz and Reena Roy, who played the title role. The director will also be locked followed by casting.
“We haven’t identified the director yet. Once the director is finalized then we will think of actors. It is too premature to talk about a cameo appearance of Jeetendraji and Reenaji,” the source said.
