Naomi Scott who played princess Jasmine in 2019 Aladdin remake, recalls the time when she was mistaken for Deepika Padukone. Her interview with BBC during the film’s promotion is going viral, in which she reveals that one of her crew members thought she was in the Nagada Song, however, Naomi didn’t correct the person but went ahead with the flow. During the interview, when the interviewer asked her if Jasmine was inspired by Bollywood actor, Naomi said, “I have to tell you this funny story. Do you know Nagada Sang Dhol? I was playing it on set and I had an American cast and crew so I’m playing it because I love that song so much, and literally someone was like, ‘Oh it’s so beautiful, Nay, is that you?’ and I was just like, ‘Yeah, it is, it is.’” Naomi is glad to be mistaken with Deepika as she’s one of the topmost Indian actors. Reportedly, Will Smith, who played the character of Genie, said in an interview that he encouraged Guy Ritchie to go full Bollywood. Aladdin went on to become a billion-dollar hit.
