Shifted this plant into another pot, but all leaves are dead. New are growing right. What should I do.

If the new leaves are growing correctly, care for it normally. It will shed the old leaves and fill out again in its own time.

I agree I've never seen a croton that's turned into a tree.

Your Gold-dust Dracaena is in poor condition and will be difficult to revive. The soil it is growing in looks more like mud than good potting mix. That soil has probably suffocated the roots and prevented them from absorbing water from the soil.

If there are any remaining healthy roots then you can prune back all of the stems and new growth should emerge from those stems. But I am not hopeful.

I imagine repotting was the original problem - the plant went into shock. I don't know what your plant is but, if new leaves are growing right, I wouldn't re-pot again. Give it a chance to recover.
