Producer Ekta Kapoor has bought the rights for her father’s ‘Nagin’ (1976) and vows that she will be giving the remake a contemporary treatment.

“We are remaking ‘Nagin’ but it will be set in today’s time. It will be 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 confirmed to IBN Live.

The source continued, “We haven’t identified the director yet. Once the director is finalised then we will think of actors. It is too premature to talk about a cameo appearance of Jeetendraji and Reenaji”.

Apart from her father, Jeetendra, ‘Nagin’ also starred Sanjay Dutt, Reena Roy and Mumtaz to name a few.
