Shahid’s work in Haider impresses dad Pankaj Kapur

‘I am happy to see my son doing well,’ said acclaimed actor Pankaj Kapur referring to Shahid Kapoor's work in his forthcoming film Haider, an Indian adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Within a span of a few weeks both father and son will come on screen to woo the audience.
 If English language Finding Fanny will see Pankaj tickling the funny bones of the audience, Shahid's Haider will keep the audience on the edge of their seats. ‘I am happy to see my son doing well.

Haider is certainly a special film and coming from Vishal Bhardwaj makes it all the more special. I am extremely happy to see Shahid's work in Haider,’ Pankaj has been part of Bhardwaj's well crafted dramas Maqbool and The Blue Umbrella.

Homi Adajania's quirky drama Finding Fanny, which also stars Dimple Kapadia, Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor, is coming out on 12 Sep, while Haider, part of director Bhardwaj's Shakespeare trilogy after Maqboo’ (Macbeth) and Omkara (Othello), will hit the screens 2 Oct.

In the film Shahid has teamed up with Shraddha Kapoor.

If the 60-year-old is impressed with his son's work, he is equally excited about Finding Fanny.
He said: ‘When Homi came to me with the script I said yes to the film. It's a very unusual film, which I have not done before.’
