Now it is learnt that the actor, has got so much attached to the skull, that he has requested the director, Vishal Bhardwaj to give it to him as a souvenir.
On contacting Shahid, he said, "Haider is a special film for me which is why I want a memento to remind me of one of my most challenging performances. And what better than the skull? It is the monologue people has long associated with Shakespeare's Hamlet. That is the scene I hope will make Haider memorable too. That is the reason I have asked Vishal sir for it."
