Hrithik Roshan has reportedly given the nod to Tigmanshu Dhulia to play the lead in the Indian interpretation of William Shakespeare۪s ‘Hamlet’.
The film is produced by Goldie Behl and goes on the floors in mid-2014. An actress is yet to be confirmed.
A source told Mid-Day, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Hrithik have been holding meetings for a while now. Hrithik has loved the way Tigmanshu adapted Shakespeare۪s Hamlet to fit into rural India. The filmmaker specialises in having the hinterlands as the backdrop for his films.
Goldie has already signed Hrithik who will begin work on it after he finishes Siddharth Anand۪s Bang Bang and Karan Malhotra۪s Shuddhi.
Previously, it was reported that Abhishek Bachchan was to play ‘Hamlet’, followed by rumours of Shahid Kapoor being associated with the project.
