Vishal Bhardwaj is all set to collaborate with his Kaminey actor once again for Hamlet’s Indian adaptation

Shahid Kapoor has been sporting a buzz cut look for his upcoming film Haider. The R…Rajkumar actor is all set to play a character that he has never played before. The actor himself once said that playing Haider was the toughest part of his acting career. We wonder what the new poster is all about…

The actor tweeted, “To be or not to be” and posted this poster where he is seen holding a skull in his hand and looking towards it. We think he might be playing the role of a soothsayer, who believes in the doing black magic, which maybe an almost exact Indian adaptation from the famous ‘To be or not to be’ soliloquy from Hamlet.  Now we can’t predict anything more than this. All our doubts will get cleared once the trailer of Haider is out tomorrow.

So go ahead BollywoodLifers, have a look at the poster and let us know your thoughts on the same.

    Haider is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet… one of the most renowned classics of all time. The skull is part of the famous “to be or not to be” soliloquy Hamlet performs in the play. anyone who has read Hamlet will know the importance of the skull and this scene. Bharadwaj has picked an iconic moment for the poster, really draws attention to it! Can’t wait for this movie!!! also Hamlet was a prince..

    Unbelievable! You really don’t know why he’s holding a skull? Do you know anything about the film at all? Version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet? Does this give you a clue?
