Shahid Kapoor's 'Haider' shooting

Actor Shahid Kapoor is quite busy shooting for his movie ‘Haider’ in Srinagar. This is a Vishal Bhardwaj movie and an adaptation of Shakespeare epic tragic drama ‘Hamlet’. ‘Haider’  is the first Bollywood movie to be entirely shot in Kashmir amid tight security. The film has Shahid Kapoor and Shradhha Kapoor in the lead role with Tabu and Irrfan Khan also playing a part. Irrfan Khan and Shraddha Kapoor on Monday attracted large crowds in the city centre, Lal Chowk during their shooting.




According to sources, Shahid Kapoor, who will sport a bald look in the film for some of its scenes, took to Twitter to inform his followers about his arrival in the Valley. “Reading scenes for the final schedule of ‘Haider’.. Nervous and excited.. Last four days of hair I can run my hands through.. Snowed out Kashmir calling.”

The film crew will stay in the Valley for over three weeks. Most of the shooting will be done in Srinagar. Then the crew would move to south Kashmir tourist resort Pahalgam. The first schedule of the movie was cut short when controversy eclipsed the movie while shooting in the university when students protested over hoisting of the national flag atop a makeshift bunker.

Hope this time around there isn’t any obstacles and the shoot gets completed on time .
