MUMBAI: With his last film Paan Singh Tomar garnering both critical acclaim and audience response, Tigmanshu Dhulia will adapt William Shakespeare‘s tragic play Hamlet in Hindi.
The project will be produced by Goldie Behl and his sister Shrishti Arya under the Rose Movies banner. Abhishek Bachchan has been tipped to play the title role.
The project was first discussed with filmmaker Behl over a decade, when Dhulia was writing Behl’s film Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai in 2001. That‘s when Dhulia suggested him a Hindi adaptation of the William Shakespeare play.
"Tigmanshu and I go back a long way... We started our careers around the same time in Rose Movies. So it feels great that he‘s coming back home but this time as a director. We both are very passionate about adapting ‘Hamlet‘ as its the ultimate revenge drama," observed Behl.
The last movie released under the Rose Movies banner was London, Paris, New York.
