Hamlet to get Bollywood treatment

New Delhi: After `Macbeth` and `Othello`, Shakespeare`s another popular tragedy `Hamlet` is getting a Bollywood makeover by `Haasil` director Tigmanshu Dhulia.

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.
