Mumbai: "I am happy to see my son doing well," said acclaimed actor Pankaj Kapur referring to Shahid Kapoor`s work in his forthcoming film ‘Haider’, an Indian adaptation of Shakespeare`s ‘Hamlet’.
Within a span of a few weeks both father and son will come on screen to woo the audience. If English language ‘Finding Fanny’ will see Pankaj tickling the funny bones of the audience, Shahid`s ‘Haider’ will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
"I am happy to see my son doing well. `Haider` is certainly a special film and coming from Vishal Bhardwaj makes it all the more special. I am extremely happy to see Shahid`s work in `Haider`," Pankaj, who has been part of Bhardwaj`s well crafted dramas ‘Maqbool’ and ‘The Blue Umbrella’ said.
Homi Adajania`s quirky drama ‘Finding Fanny’, which also stars Dimple Kapadia, Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor, is coming out on Sep 12, while ‘Haider’, part of director Bhardwaj`s Shakespeare trilogy after ‘Maqbool’ (Macbeth) and ‘Omkara’ (Othello), will hit the screens Oct 2.
In the film Shahid has teamed up with Shraddha Kapoor.
If the 60-year-old is impressed with his son`s work, he is equally excited about ‘Finding Fanny’.
He said: "When Homi came to me with the script I instantly said yes to the film. It`s a very unusual film, which I have not done before. "
