This adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy 'Hamlet', directed by director Vishal Bhardwaj, is set against the unrest in the Kashmir valley and revolves around a character who wants to avenge his father's death. "For the shoot, I was Haider. And now, Haider is me," said Shahid. “Apart from other things, the 33-year-old actor even shaved off his head to get under the skin of the character. "I haven't regretted it for a single day," he added.
