Hamlet to get Bollywood treatment
Vishal Bhardwaj adapted the two other classics in his films `Maqbool` and `Omkara`. He had planned to complete the trilogy by making a film on `Hamlet` but things did not fall into place.
And now Dhulia is moving ahead with his version of `Hamlet` and has roped in model-actor Pravesh Rana to play the tragic hero, who uttered one of the most famous lines in literature: `to be or not to be`.
Rana, a former Mr India, was one of the finalist in `Big Boss 3` and now hosts the very popular show `Emotional Atyachar`on Bindas. Paresh Rawal has also been approached to play the role of the uncle, Claudius.
The film will be produced by Brand Smith Motion Pictures.
