Vishal Bhardwaj had worked on many of William Shakespeare’s works like Othello, Macbeth and Hamlet now has opened his eyes on another iconic English literature – Agatha Christie. On his speech to Times of India, during the corona pandemic, he was confused on which genre he should direct. He said his love for murder mysteries, Alfred Hitchcock and finally Agatha Christie prompted him to make a movie on one of Christie’s novels.
He stated to Times of India that…”I love Agatha Christie. India has a huge fan base of hers and people of our generation, those who did not grow up with mobile phones and social media – you know we lived on novels. Summer vacation, libraries..those memories wishing that the book never ends!,”
