Vishal Bhardwaj’s fascination for Shakespeare’s body of work is well known. After all, he has adapted not one but two of the Bard’s works on the big screen with Maqbool and Omkara. And sources say the director is all set to base his next on another of the playwright-poet’s dramas. And once again, Vishal has signed Shahid Kapoor for the film.
A source says, “Vishal’s outing (Kaminey) with Shahid last time was a success. However they weren’t on very friendly terms as both had creative differences. Later, Shahid even refused to do Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. But now all’s well between the two.” While some insiders believe that Vishal’s next would be based on Hamlet, some say it could be King Lear.
