The Kaminey director-actor may work together again to adapt another one of Shakespeare’s dramas for the big screen
We’re not really sure whether Vishal Bhardwaj and Shahid Kapoor ever really fell out or had a major fight, as the media speculated when SK refused to work on Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola with the director. However, all that speculation may be put to rest now considering the two may work together again very soon.
Bhardwaj, who has been a fan of Shakespeare and has adapted a number of the Bard’s plays for the big screen rather successfully, plans to adapt another one of the author’s works for a new film, with Shahid Kapoor playing the lead. And this time, we don’t think Sasha is in any position to refuse, considering the fact that the only notable project he has going for him is Prabhu Deva’s Rambo Rajkumar. He does have two other films on his roster – Phata Poster Nikla Hero and Bejoy Nambiar’s next, which he has rumouredly now dropped out of – but a Vishal Bhardwaj film at this juncture could make a world of difference to his career.
We’re glad that the two are working together considering Vishal too is in dire need of a hit after MKBKM and Ek Thi Daayan failed to work the numbers magic on the box office. So will the two get lucky together this time? Wait and watch…. what else!
