Indian born filmmaker Tarsem Singh, who made it to Hollywood's A-list with the sellout, The Cell is producing an Indian version of Hamlet. The film, titled Aditya, will be produced by Los Angeles based James Killough and New Delhi based William Gains.
Killough had earlier written scripts for Indian films including Muzaffar Ali's Zooni and Pamela Rooks' Miss Beatty's Children. The film will be shot on locations in Jodhpur Fort, with some scenes in England. The multi-million-dollar international film will be cast with major Indian actors in every single role.
The film has already sparked off a controversy in India with the Indian Superstar Hritik Roshan denying that he is acting in the film though the filmmakers claim they have signed him as the lead.
