During a recent interview, Ekta revealed that she had approached Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Katrina Kaif for a Naagin movie. She also shared the responses given by both of them.
Ekta claimed that when she approached Katrina, Kat thought that she had smoked something nice. Katrina had even questioned whether something like Naagin would work in today’s time.
‘Are you serious? You want to make something called Naagin in today’s time? Will people watch it?’
Ekta, later revealed that when she approached Priyanka Chopra, PC was leaving for abroad. She said that while Priyanka said yes to the film, Katrina ‘didn’t get the bigness of folklore’.
In an another interview, Ekta said that even though both of them said no to the script, she admires both the actresses and wants to work with them in the future.
