Haider is said to be inspired from Shakespeare’s famous plays, Hamlet. The film is the first Bollywood movie to be entirely shot in Kashmir. Except for the lead stars, Vishal’s Haider has around 200 artists from Kashmir.
Actors, Shradha Kapoor and Irfan Khan, were spotted shooting a sequence of the film in Srinagar’s press enclave.
As soon as Shradha Kapoor of Ashiqui 2 fame alighted from her vanity van, crowds started to fill the narrow lanes housing newspaper offices. The lanes were crowded with the spectators.
Authorities had made tight arrangements of security and a considerable number of police personnel were deployed in the area.
Irrfan khan, who has also acted in some of the acclaimed Hollywood movies, will be seen in a guest appearance in the film. Meanwhile, the film is scheduled to release this year clashing with Ranbir kapoor’s Jagga Jasoos.
