Producer Ekta Kapoor, who has bought the rights of the 1976 film Nagin, is set to remake the Jeetendra-Reena Roy starrer. However, this film will have a contemporary twist. Sources reveal that the film will be set in today's times and that they will be writing the script, which will take three to four months, keeping with the sensibilities of today's audiences.
The original Nagin featured Sunil Dutt, Feroz Khan, Sanjay Khan, Rekha and Mumtaz. The director and the cast of the film is yet to be finalised. It is also believed that Jeetendra and Reena Roy may have special appearances in the remake.
