The 3D phenomenon has been catching on like wildfire among filmmakers. Vikram Bhatt started the trend with his horror film Haunted. And then Shah Rukh Khan and Farhan Khan followed suit with RA.One and Don 2 respectively. Reportedly, now Shahid Kapoor has been cast in the first 3D film of his career.
A source informed that the actor has been cast in the lead role of Sunil Bohra’s fourth version of The Thief Of Baghdad, based on the1924 novel The Thief Of Baghdad by Ahmed Abdullah.
“Bohra has cast Shahid Kapoor in a big-budget fantasy spectacle. Ever since Mausam opened to a whopping Rs8 crore at the box office on the first day, Bohra has been keen to get Shahid on board,” said the source.
When contacted, Bohra said, “The Thief Of Baghdad has been made thrice before under my family’s banner. And yes I’m now doing a 3D version of this fabulous fable.”
The first version of The Thief Of Baghdad under Bohra’s banner released in 1965. The first version, which was produced by Sunil’s grandfather Sreeram, starred Mahipal in the lead. Then in 1968, the lead role was essayed by Dara Singh and for the third version, which released in 1978, Shatrughan Sinha played the role.
