Many people credit Vishal Bhardwaj with extracting the best performance out of Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey – or performances, we should say, since he played a double role in the film. Those people will be pleased to know that Vishal and Shahid have joined hands yet again, for a Hamlet adaptation titled Haider. Shahid begun shooting for the film in Srinagar, and we hear that Shahid is extremely excited, since he places a lot of trust in Mr Bhardwaj.
In fact, we had even heard that Shahid told a few friends the role was so prestigious, that he wouldn’t mind going bald for it. When we asked him, he said that the look had not been decided at that point, and his look may require him to go very short instead of completely bald. Either way, it speaks volumes for how much he cares about this role. A source tells us that Shahid considers Vishal an institution, and expects the director to push him to new heights – so he’s extremely excited to be back on sets with the director.
We’re excited to see what the pair deliver this time!
