Shahid Kapoor sports a neat buzz-cut in the movie that will see him play the desi Hamlet. After giving you the cult hit, Kaminey, the trio of Vishal Bhardwaj, Shahid Kapoor and Disney UTV brings you Haider that is set to release on September 12 this year. The movie which also stars Tabu, Shraddha Kapur and Kay Kay Menon is Vishal Bhardwaj’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Being currently shot in Kashmir, Haider is Vishal's last film of his trilogy based on William Shakespeare's tragedies.
Commenting on the look Shahid Kapoor says, "I believe in the script and have completely surrendered to Vishal sir's vision on my character and my look."
"Disney UTV Studios' previous association with Vishal Bhardwaj and Shahid Kapoor delivered the cult box office hit 'Kaminey'. The audiences have long awaited the next installment from this team, and in 'Haider' we believe the audiences will find the wait was well worth it. With an incredible ensemble of actors including Tabu, Shraddha Kapur and Kay Kay Menon, this Shakespearean interpretation set against the backdrop of militancy in Kashmir, has some remarkable performances and great music. We believe 'Haider' will be a worthy successor to 'Maqbool' and 'Omkara'," says Amar Butala, Creative Director, Studios, Disney UTV.
