Shraddha Kapoor now finds a spot in the top three most followed Indian celebrities on Instagram. The Baaghi 3 actor was ranked number four but surpassed Deepika Padukone to take her position. Now Kapoor has more than 56 million followers and Padukone has 52.3 million followers on the photo-sharing site. The most followed Indian celebrity on Instagram is Virat Kohli with over 82 million followers. Priyanka Chopra Jonas takes second place with more than 58 million followers.
On the work front, Shraddha Kapoor will next appear in the Naagin trilogy, which will be directed by Vishal Furia. The Chhichhore actress will shed her girl-next-door persona and step into the shoes of a ‘naagin’ for a three-part film series produced by Nikhil Dwivedi.
When it comes to ‘icchhadari naagins’, Ekta Kapoor’s Naagin TV series has been quite popular among folklore fans for a number of years now. Actresses like Karishma Tanna and Anita Hassanandani, among some others, were part of the fantasy drama. On the big screen, Reena Roy, Rekha and Sridevi have portrayed shape-shifting snakes.
Speaking of Deepika Padukone, the actress will next be seen in Shkun Batra’s rom-com alongside Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi. Dippy also has the remake of ‘Intern’, a film starring Prabhas, a multilingual PAN India project directed by Nag Ashwin and another film, Draupadi.
Not only this drama, but Padukone is also gearing up for 83 with Ranveer Singh and directed by Kabir Khan. This film, based on the Indian cricket team’s victory in the 1983 World Cup, was set to hit theaters on April 10 this year, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic that resulted in the global lockdown. A new release date has yet to be announced.
