Mirzya actor Harshvardhan Kapoor will be playing celebrated Olympic medal winner shooter Abhinav Bindra in a biopic. Harsh took to twitter to announce that the he has finally signed the film and will start shooting in the fall of 2018. The film has been doing the rounds for a long time now and finally it landed in Harsh’s lap. Harsh’s first film Mirzya got a lukewarm response on the box office and still he nabbed films with some of the most celebrated film makers of Hindi cinema. His next film Bhavesh Joshi is Vikram Aditya Motwane’s passion project that he has been trying to make for years.
Back in the day makers of Bhavesh Joshi rejected him in the audition as he was too young to play the part. Shooting of Bhavesh Joshi is over now as Motwane himself is directing Scared Games for Netflix. Harsh has signed Sriram Raghvan’s next film, the one he will make after Ayushman Khurana film. Director of Bindra biopic is not finalized yet but the film will be produced by Vishal Bhardwaj. In his tweet Harsh mentioned that Bindra is a perfectionist and could be called as a difficult man to please but he is happy with the writing of script.
Director of the film is not finalized yet but there is a chance that Bhardwaj himself might take the baton. Harsh will start preparing for the film from next month as there is a lot of technical detailing into being Abhinav Bindra. Even to act as a shooter, one needs to know how to hold a gun in the right direction especially if you are playing one of the best shooter of all time. There isn’t much known about the life of Bindra as it is not controversially highlighted in the media hence the suspense of unfolding the story should be there unlike M.S. Dhoni biopic.
