Mumbai – “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, who has been part of Bhardwaj’s well crafted dramas “Maqbool” and “The Blue Umbrella”, told IANS.

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

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 instantly said yes to the film. It’s a very unusual film, which I have not done before. ”
