Soon after Shraddha Kapoor was confirmed as the heroine of the three-film franchise based on the superhit TV series Nagin On Wednesday, the hashtag #ShraddhaAsNagin started trending on Twitter. Responses to the news have been mixed, with memes featuring and targeting Shraddha going viral.
While fans have praised the actress saying she is suitable for the role, many others are not convinced. Some have even raked up the issue of Shraddha being summoned by Narcotics Control Bureau in a drug-related case recently. Yet others criticised Bollywood saying it lacks creativity because the concept of Nagin and the shape-shifting serpent has been a subject on film and in TV shows several times in the past.
