Vishal Bhardwaj to adapt Hamlet for his next film
Film maker Vishal Bhardwaj is back to what he does best – adapting Shakespeare’s plays to Bollywood commercial film format. His film Maqbool was inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Omkara was Vishal’s version of Othello. Both the films earned critical acclaim and succeeded at the box office.
Now, Vishal Bhardwaj is planning a film based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet and is thinking of casting Hrithik Roshan to play the Prince Of Denmark and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, his Ophelia.
If Hrithik and Aishwarya agree to act in the film it will be their fourth movie together after Dhoom 2, Jodha Akbar and Guzaarish.
