Ekta Kapoor opens up on offering Naagin to Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra, says, ‘admire them’

Ekta Kapoor is a star in herself. She has created a big name for herself through her hard work. She was ruling the television industry for so many years and now she is slowly-slowly capturing the web series and film industry as well. She knows what the audience wants to see and creates it exactly like that, thus fulfilling their expectations. During an interview recently, Ekta Kapoor opened up about her first film that was Naagin and she also said that she approached Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra Jonas for the same, although it was declined by them.

Ekta Kapoor in an exclusive chat also opened about the struggles that she faces in the day to day life, what she apprehends and what challenges come in her way. She also shared her ambition to work with Katrina and Priyanka by offering them Naagin.

On this entire thing, Ekta gave a clarification saying, "I had just mentioned it. I should have given the context. They did not know how big the folklore in India is. Priyanka had said yes, Katrina did not get the bigness of folklore but both these women are great women. They are women I admire and love. I am hoping to work with both of them in my career. Everyone has this ambition of working with big male stars, even I have the ambition of working with Priyanka or Katrina because they are such smart women. Katrina did not know Hindi but she has picked it up brilliantly, fought being from non-film family on her own and Priyanka did the same. So yes, they said no to a script but I was giving an example of how we don't understand the power of folklore in India. But both are great."
