Haider song Aao Na: Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar give Shahid Kapoor

 Haider song Aao Na: Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar give Shahid Kapoor a powerful track

The song has modern beats and is becoming quite a hit with the Hindi rock lovers in the country…
Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Haider‘s first song Aao Na‘s music video was recently released. The pulsating rock number has been penned by Gulzar, composed and crooned by Vishal Dadlani. The mood of the song has a slight Metallica feel to it and for all those existentialist souls out there, this whacky number is highly recommended!

The video has scenes from the film that build up in a crescendo along with the words. What has piqued our interest the most is Shahid’s relationship with Tabu in the film. If Vishal Bhardwaj has kept true to Hamlet‘s plot then you mustn’t expect Shahid and Tabu to share a typical mother-son bond.

Shraddha looks radiant in a Kashmiri girl’s role and her chemistry with Shahid is one to look out for.

Check out Aao Na here and tell us if you are excited about this Vishal Bhardwaj film!

Shraddha Kapoor landed a role in Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Haider, thanks to co-star Shahid Kapoor. The actress confessed during a promotional event that Sasha recommended her to the filmmaker.

Shahid, who was present at the meet was left speechless and could only flash a grin. Earlier, Vishal had remarked that Shraddha was selected because of her eyes, which looked Kashmiri, like the character she essays in the film. Now whom do we believe?

Comedy Nights With Kapil ‘Haider’ special: Shraddha Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor

 Comedy Nights With Kapil ‘Haider’ special: Shraddha Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor have a gala time promoting the movie

Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s forthcoming film is only set to release in October this year, yet the stars seem to have already set out on a promotional spree. The duo recently appeared on the sets of popular comical show Comedy Nights With Kapil to promote their film Haider.

The episode started off with a very thanda act in which Kapil Sharma was seen in a Goan avatar trying hard to make the audience laugh with his silly and lame jokes. The presence of daadi and Kapil’s wife Manju in the act also couldn’t light up the mood of the audiences. All in all, the first half was uninteresting, colourless and mundane.

However, all the fun started with the entry of Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the second half of the episode. Shraddha looked pretty cute in a grey and white coloured crop top and a knee length skirt while Shahid looked uber cool in a skull t-shirt. Also, not to forget Shahid Kapoor’s dimples! Oh my God! His smile is to die for!

Shahid couldn’t stop laughing when Gutthi performed an item number on the Kashmiri folk song ‘Bismil Bismil’ from Haider. The audiences laughed their heads off watching Shraddha and Kapil perform a spoof on Romeo and Juliet. On asking about her role in Haider, the ‘Ek Villain’ actress said that she plays a very intense character in Haider. Her role in the film is that of a journalist. Haider is Shraddha’s first film with Vishal Bharadwaj and Shahid Kapoor. The director of the film, Vishal Bharadwaj, who is known for directing dark romantic films like Omkara and Maqbool, also joined in to promote his much-awaited film Haider. The film, which is an adaptation of William Shkespeare’s ‘Hamlet’, is slated to release on October 2, 2014.

Shahid Kapoor wants Vishal Bharadwaj to direct Kaminey 2 Movie

 Shahid Kapoor wants Vishal Bharadwaj to direct ‘Kaminey 2′

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, who will soon be seen in filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj’s next ‘Haider’, wants to join hands with the director for the third time.

Shahid collaborated with Vishal Bharadwaj for the first time in 2009 for ‘Kaminey’ . The actor, who is in London to promote the adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘Hamlet’, ‘Haider’, with the man himself, took to Twitter to share that he has been trying to convince the director for ‘Kaminey’ sequel.

Shahid also thinks that the director is ‘lucky’ for him and has given him the best roles so far.
“Vishal sir gave me so far the best role of my life in ‘Kaminey’. It is amazing to work with him again. It is a rare opportunity and very few actors get to play Hamlet,” Shahid said in an interview earlier.

“When he (Vishal) wrote the script of Haider, he called me and said ‘You are very lucky. Whenever I cast you in any film, your role is written really well.’ I guess, he is really lucky for me,” Shahid said earlier.

‘Haider’, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and is set in Kashmir. The film stars Tabu, Kay Kay Menon and Shraddha Kapoor apart from Shahid Kapoor.

Haider Movie Trailer (Official) | Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor

Haider' and 'Bang Bang' are both very different films: Shahid Kapoor

 Haider and 'Bang Bang' are both very different films: Shahid Kapoor

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, whose upcoming film 'Haider' is set to clash with superstar Hrithik Roshan's 'Bang Bang' on October 2, feels that both the films can sustain together because they cater to different audiences.

"I saw the promo of Bang Bang and I loved it and I will definitely go and see the film. I wished good luck to Hrithik. It is a five-day weekend, the five-day holiday period is coming after a long time and I think any big holiday weekend is good enough for two films to sustain. Two big films can release (together), there is no problem," Shahid said in an interview here.

While Vishal Bharadwaj's Haide' is a desi adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, starring Shahid, Tabu, Irrfan Khan, Kay Kay Menon and Shraddha Kapoor, Bang Bang, directed by Siddharth Raj Anand, is a remake of the hit Hollywood movie Knight and Day, with Hrithik and Katrina Kaif in the lead.

"I think if Haider is black then Bang Bang is white. What Haider is offering you that Bang Bang can't offer and vice versa. We are confident about our film. Our film is not very expensive so we have nothing to lose. So getting a five-day weekend is fantastic for a film like ours," Shahid said.

The actor feels that both the films are of different genres and will cater to audiences with different tastes.

"I don't think there is going to be any confusion for people. If people want to see something edgy, different and out-of-the-box then they will see Haider and if people want to see something entertaining, fun and a potboiler then they will see 'Bang Bang'. Had there been two similar kinds of films then it would be a different scenario but that is not the case here," he added.

Shahid Kapoor to face tough competition from siblings

 Shahid Kapoor to face tough competition from siblings

Shahid Kapoor has competition at home, from his half brothers and sister. While his mother Neelima Azmi's son with her second husband Rajesh Khattar, Ishaan, is gearing up for his Bollywood debut, Shahid's father Pankaj Kapur's children with his present wife Supriya Pathak, Sanah (23) and Ruhaan (20), have also got their eyes on the silver screen.

Confirming this, Pankaj said: "Sanah and Ruhaan have trained in acting. Sanah took a course in New York City, while Ruhaan honed his acting skills in London. I am so proud of them." So, will Pankaj direct a film for them? Pat comes the reply, "I definitely will. But not right away. I think they should first make a place in the industry on their own."

Listen to the songs of Shahid Kapoor on

Added the friend; "Pankaj didn't direct Shahid when he started out though if he had wanted, he could have. He believes that his children should stand on their own feet without his help. That will make them stronger." Pankaj's previous and only directorial venture Mausam (2011), starring Sonam Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor didn't fare well at the box-office.
