Vishal Bhardwaj is gearing up for a film to be based on Shakespeare’s famous tragedy Hamlet, and will team up once again with his ‘Kaminey’ actor Shahid Kapoor. And as per sources, the actor has apparently recommended Anushka Sharma to Vishal Bhardwaj as his heroine in the film.
Shahid and Anushka share a great rapport ever since they worked in Badmaash Company, and reportedly the actor thinks Anushka will be perfect for the role. “Shahid and Anushka are good friends and their last outing was Badmaash Company,” a source is quoted as saying.
Incidentally, Vishal Bhardwaj has already worked with Anushka Sharma in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Thus, if the director favours Shahid and ropes in Anushka for the film, one could see her play the character based on Ophelia, the tragic heroine of Hamlet’s love story.
It’s also heard that Shahid Kapoor is willing to experiment for the role of desi Hamlet. There was even buzz that the actor is contemplating going bald to look the character.
