The posters of Haider show a different side of Shahid Kapoor. One poster (see it ahead) has blood dripping from the actor’s head as he is embraced by another character whose face isn’t shown. Another poster has Shahid holding a skull in his hand.
Haider is essentially a story of love and revenge. It also stars Tabu and Irrfan Khan, both of them playing Haider’s step-parents.
Haider has been shot in Kashmir. It is Vishal Bhardwaj’s third Shakespearean adaptation after Maqbool (MacBeth) and Omkara (Othello).
