MUMBAI: Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj, who has made a niche in Indian cinema with films based on William Shakespeare’s works, has now set his eyes on iconic writings of Agatha Christie.
In an interview with the media, he said that he loves mystery stories and finally Agatha Christie prompted him to make a movie on one of her novels.
He acknowledged that Christie has a huge fan base even today.
He adapted Shakespear's 'Othello,' 'Macbeth,' and 'Hamlet' to make 'Omkara', 'Maqbool' and 'Haider.'
All three films were well received, especially 'Haider' where Tabu and Shahid Kapoor received several accolades for their performances.
Agatha Christie is one of the highest-selling authors in the world and was known for her murder mystery.
She created Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.
