Tigmanshu joins hands with Goldie and Shrishti for his next

After the stupendous success of Paan Singh Tomar, all eyes are on Tigmanshu Dhulia, the versatile director who rode in with a dark horse of a film and rode out with accolades galore. Tigmanshu has now joins hands with producers Goldie Behl and Shrishti Arya of Rose Movies for his next directorial venture.

Ironically their last respective films, London Paris New York and Paan Singh Tomar, released on the same day. While both films did encouraging business, the makers now team up for an idea they discussed while working on Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai over ten years ago.

In 2001, Tigmanshu discussed the idea of doing an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in Hindi and Goldie loved the idea.

Says Tigmanshu, “Goldie and I had planned to make Hamlet when he made his debut – Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai, for which I wrote the dialogues. I guess every film has its destiny and we could not do it back then. But Hamlet has risen again and now we will translate the tragic hero’s story on screen.”

Adds producer Goldie Behl, “Tigmanshu and I go back a long way… We started our careers around the same time in Rose Movies so it feels great that he’s coming back home but this time as a director… We both are very passionate about adapting Hamlet as it’s the ultimate revenge drama.”

Known to encourage and nurture young contemporary talent, Rose Movies post the success of its crossover entertainer London Paris New York is already well on its way to working out the details of their ambitious next.

Says producer Shrishti Arya, “We at Rose over the last two years have been working towards nurturing fresh voices in contemporary cinema. Tigmanshu is the perfect person to take a subject of the scale and size of Hamlet and infuse into it a dimension all of his own… I’m very excited with the way the script is shaping up.”
