It's a small film made with a lot of heart. Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Haider', his twist on William Shakespeare's tragic play 'Hamlet', is climbing up the Bollywood box office ladder thanks to a positive word of mouth, say experts. It has earned a cumulative of Rs.13.07 crore within two days of its release.
Despite being tagged as "mindless", "loud", "dumb", "pointless" and "exhausting", action thriller 'Bang Bang!' has emerged as a clear winner at the box office with business of Rs.27.54 crore on the first day with simultaneous release 'Haider' minting just Rs.6.14 crore.
One of the most awaited films of the year 'Haider', starring Shahid and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles has hit the silver screens today. Directed by ace filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj 'Haider' is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's play 'Hamlet'.
Mumbai: Veteran actor Pankaj Kapur, who has frequently collaborated with Vishal Bhardwaj, says he cannot thank the director enough for casting his son Shahid Kapoor as Hamlet in his upcoming movie 'Haider', an adaptation of William Shakespeare's revenge tragedy.
