Post Aashiqui 2, Shraddha Kapoor’s Bollywood fortune has definitely turned around! The actress, who delivered two flops before tasting the sweet success of Aashiqui 2, is reportedly gearing up for a big project with the Bollywood heartthrob Shahid Kapoor.
The buzz is strong that Shraddha Kapoor might be cast in Vishal Bhardwaj’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.Vishal has set the ball rolling, and has already finalized Shahid Kapoor as the hero, and the hunt for the leading actress was on.
A few days back, a rumour of Anushka Sharma as Shahid’s choice for the lead was also doing the rounds. Shahid and Anushka have been good friends ever since they worked in Badmaash Company. Thus it was heard that if the director heeds Shahid’s recommendation, Anushka might just be on board.
However, now it seems that scales have tipped in favour of Shraddha Kapoor. The actress has apparently even met Vishal Bhardwaj to discuss the script. Shraddha is more than eager to work with a director like Vishal, but her dates could be an issue.
“Everything is getting finalised. Shraddha is very keen to work with Vishal. On the other hand, she is also doing a film with Mohit Suri, so she is waiting for things to fall in place,” a source is quoted as saying.
Vishal has successfully adapted Bard’s tragedies on big screen, be it Maqbool inspired from Macbeth or Omkara from Othello. Now, he has Hamlet on his mind. The movie is expected to go on the floors by the year end.
