Pankaj Kapur

1. – Piyush Mishra, Maqbool, Indina, 2003. For his second director outing, veteran   Bollywood  composer Vishal Bharadwaj, turned Macbeth into The Godfather. In the Mumbai underworld. After asking Kapur to be Kaka (aka Banquo), he was  switched to Abbaji (Duncan). As LA critic Kirk Honeycutt commented:  “Who knew that Shakespeare could write such a dynamite gangster movie?” (UK Aussie directors Ken Hughes and Geoffrey Wright didn much the same  with their   Macbeth of the the US and Melbourne  crime fraternities in 1955 and 2006. Minus song ’n’ dance  routines!)
