Actor Rajat Kapoor may have adjusted four of William Shakespeare’s shows for stage, yet he says that he is not in hurry to make any film on his fills in as he feels chief Vishal Bhardwaj is making enough films on the Bard.
Rajat has brought ‘Villa’, ‘Lord Lear’, “Macbeth” and ‘As You Like It’ in front of an audience in his eccentric takes like ‘The Clown King’, ‘Not at all Like Lear’, ‘What’s Done, Is Done’ and ‘I Don’t Like It As You’ respectively, according to a report in Indian Express.com.
Rajat feels that movies and stage preparations are two distinct things as what may work in a play may not tap on the silver screen. “I would prefer truly not to make a film (on Shakespeare’s works). Film scripts are altogether different from theater preparations. What works on stage may not work on screen at all. What’s more, in any case, Vishal (Bhardwaj) is doing enough Shakespeare on screen I ought not meddle with that,” the performer, Rajat , who was recently seen in ‘Kapoor and Sons’ , was cited as saying in the report. He added that he never planned doing so many stage adaptations of Shakespeare’s works but it just happened ever since he directed a play based on ‘Hamlet’ in 2008. “There was no plan on doing Shakespeare’s plays. I did ‘Hamlet’ in 2008 and now we have done four plays. It just happened,” he was quoted as saying.
Rajat Kapoor who has done movies like ‘Monsoon Wedding’, ‘Bheja Fry’, ‘Phas Gaye Re Obama’, ‘Midnight’s Children’, ‘Drishyam’, says that he appreciates theater and movies as he finds both the mediums equally satisfying. “Films have a different kind of joy and so does theater. The kind of cinema that I have made I have always had control. So, I have always had the freedom to do what I want,” he was quoted as saying. “CINEWS”
