Popular Hindi filmmaker wants to cast Rajinikanth in King Lear

Prominent Hindi filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj wants Superstar Rajnikanth to play the role of King Lear if he decides to make a fourth film on English writer Shakespeare’s tragedies.

Vishal Bharadwaj has remade Macbeth, Othello and Hamlet into iconic Bollywood films such as Maqbool, Omkara and Haider.

“Before making Haider, I had worked on the script of ‘King Lear’ and visualised Rajnikanth in the lead role. He will be my first choice, if and when I decide to make the film,” Bhardwaj said at an interaction in the recent film festival.
