The movie based on William Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet stars Shahid Kapoor in the lead. The actor- director duo earlier gave an off beat hit ‘Kaminey’.

Bhardwaj explained why he chose Kapoor for the role, saying simply: “The character requires a younger casting. Of all the stars of his age group he is the best actor. I had to make a choice and I thought that Shahid is one of the best actors and I realised the challenges the film would have and I needed someone that I could trust and who could trust me.”

While the actor Shahid Kapoor added: “Hamlet is a very coveted part and it’s a huge complement being considered for it.”

The film also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu and Kay Kay Menon.

Shahid Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj attended a press conference in London for Haider earlier.

Haider is scheduled to release on October 2.
