In Haider, we knew that Irrfan Khan would be playing a very major role but we couldn’t have guessed that the role would be that of a ghost! You read it right..Irrfan Khan plays the role of a ghost in the Indian adaptation of Shakespearean Hamlet. The ghost will be that of Shahid Kapoor’s father in Haider. Irrfan’s character will be murdered by some people in the movie and he comes back as a ghost to help his son in avenging his death.
Although the role supposedly will not last for a very long time, it will be a very crucial one. Irrfan Khan is yet to begin shooting for Haider and join the sets by the end of this month. The shooting of Haider is taking place entirely in the Kashmir valley.
This will not be the first time that Irrfan Khan will be playing the role of a Shakespearean character though, as he has already played the lead role in Maqbool (film adaptation of Macbeth). Haider also stars Tabu and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles.
