Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is all set to surprise his fans with his new fierce look in director Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet.
Shahid, who had shocked his fans with his good-boy-gone-bad image in ‘Kaminey’ a few years ago, looks deadly in his bald avatar.
The actor, who began his career with a few romantic movies, took to Twitter to share the first look of ‘Haider’.
A stark contrast from his avatars in past flicks, ‘R…Rajkumar’ and ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’, Shahid Kapoor looks nothing resembling the usual chocolate boy or roadside Romeo that we’ve all seen him portray more than a few times.
In ‘Haider’, the Kapoor boy, who shaved off his head and grew a beard, looks deadly and dark with emotional turmoil written all over his face.
Based on the adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’, the film also stars ‘Ek Villain’ actress Shraddha Kapoor. A poster revealing both Shahid and Shraddha locked in an embrace has also been released.
The chemistry between the pair, who will be seen together on screen for the first time, seems electrifying.
