Filmmaker Onir, known for his film My Brother Nikhil starring Juhi Chawla and Sanjay Suri is ready to release his second movie Bas Ek Pal in the month of September. However, even before his second venture hits the screens, Onir has expressed his desire to work with Hrithik Roshan for his next film.
Talking about his next film, Onir says, "I'm planning to make a film based on Shakespeare's Hamlet. The film will be based on the novel but will be set in urban times." Currently, they are working on the script of the film. The script is been written by Bhavani Iyer who shares the writing credits for Black with Sanjay Leela Bansali.
Says Onir, "It's only after the script gets ready will I be approaching Hrithik." The film will be produced by Ambika Hinduja and Dinesh Raheja who had also produced Being Cyrus. Onir says that relationships fascinate him and hence, he is very fascinated with Hamlet's relationship with his mother and father. He would therefore, like to explore those relationships in his film.
