Two months after students of Kashmir University disrupted the shoot of Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider in Srinagar, the crew returned to the city on January 27, for the next schedule, only to be met with trouble once again.
Though Vishal Bhardwaj's last venture, Haider (2014), clashed with the release of Bang Bang (2014), it didn't affect his film's box-office performance.
Film-maker Vishal Bhardwaj minces no words when he says that he finds it annoying when people attempt to hog the limelight by creating an issue around a film, just before its release.
Singer Suresh Wadkar, who is associated with pretty much all Vishal Bhardwaj ventures, shares a special bond with the director.
Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is a relieved man after all the controversy around his last film, Haider, has finally settled. The film, inspired by William Shakespeare's Hamlet was a satire on the political system set in early '90s in Kashmir, and received flak for being anti-national.
Last year, the October 2 (Gandhi Jayanti) weekend saw two big releases - director Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang (2014) and Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider (2014).
Last year, his film Haider impressed critics and moviegoers. But the Shahid Kapoor-Tabu-starrer also ran into controversy, as it was set in the insurgency-hit Kashmir of 1995.
Till date, he has successfully adapted three of celebrated author William Shakespeare's works - Macbeth, Othello and Hamlet - to make Maqbool (2003), Omkara (2006) and Haider respectively.
He is fresh off Haider's success. But instead of basking in the limelight - especially with awards season getting in top gear - film-maker Vishal Bhardwaj has flown to USA, and has started work on his next project - Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding musical that will soon make it's Broadway debut.
Vishal Bhardwaj, who shot his upcoming film entirely in different parts of Kashmir, is now lending a helping hand to the people of the flood-ravaged state.
