Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, which faced protests while it was being filmed in Kashmir, walked away with five National Film Awards this year.
Humbled by the recognition, the filmmaker says he has already forgotten about all the obstacles, and terms shooting in Kashmir a ‘lovely experience’. The Shahid Kapoor-starrer Haider is a modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Hamlet with Kashmir as its backdrop.
“That is past for me. I have forgotten about it already. I don’t think I faced any problems while shooting there. It was a lovely experience,” Vishal Bhardwaj told IANS in an interview.
