Mumbai, Dec 01, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRLog Press Release) – ACE FILM director Vishal Bharadwaj may soon rope in Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai in his adaptation of the famous Shakespeare play, Hamlet. The pair which has already set the screens ablaze with their sizzling on screen chemistry in movies like Dhoom-2, Jodhaa Akbar and the very recent Guzaarish are the director's first choice in the adaptation.

Rumours are strife that if the casting materialises, Hrithik will be seen playing the role of Prince Hamlet of Denmark and Aishwarya will be seen as Ophelia. Incidentally, Vishal had earlier maintained that he wanted to make three Shakespearean adaptations. Vishal had earlier adapted Macbeth in Maqbool andBard's Othello in Omkara. Like his earlier films too, the adaptation will be pertaining to the Indian settings and will be very dissimilar to the original play but the crux of the story will be same.


Sources have stated that Vishal has already met Hrithik and Aishwarya with Hamlet as he was charged about doing the last of his Shakespearean trilogy. In the past, he has approached both Hrithik and Aishwarya. Somehow things haven't worked out. This time, he's determined to make it.

Meanwhile, Guzaarish found itself entangled in the legal web as the story is said to be plagiarised. As per Akhil Rajendra Dwivedi, who is a struggling script writer and a small time film maker, he has accused Sanjay Leela Bhansali of taking inspiration from the formers story when he narrated it to the director during a 'five minute' meeting in Bhansali's office. However, Bhansali has rubbished the claims and has instructed his lawyers to look into the matter when he receives a legal notice.
