Harshvardhan Kapoor to play Olympic shooter Abhinav Bindra in next

Harshvardhan Kapoor to play Olympic shooter Abhinav Bindra in next”

The trend of biopics is here to stay with Shraddha Kapoor's Haseena Parker, Ranbir Kapoor's Dutt biopic, Aamir Khan's biopic on Rakesh Sharma, Arjun Rampal's Daddy and Hrithik Roshan's film on Super 30 coming up soon.

No rush to sign a film, hope Harshvardhan Kapoor's risky ways pay off.

Reports of Kapoor playing India's first gold medallist first surfaced in December 2016 but Anil Kapoor and Harshvardhan remained coy on the intricacies of the deal. They will play father-son in reel life too for this movie. The junior Kapoor confirmed the news on social media; he shared a picture with the Olympian. He captioned the picture: "Beginnings are very special". Especially when you get to play a character that has made the nation proud on the world stage.

All pepped up to star in the sports biopic, Harshvardhan added, "Like the man himself said, "Hard Work is a talent". Harsh has even visited Navi Mumbai shooting rage to meet Bindra's coach.

In an interaction with Mid-Day, Harshvardhan spoke about working on the film. It is the most mammoth responsibility I've ever shouldered. Here are four other biopics that are making news these days. We are taking the script into a really exciting place. The movie will chronicle the Olympians internal conflicts and his journey. Harshvardhan announced his involvement in the Bindra biopic with a tweet. An estatic Harshvardhan says he is "stoked" to be chosen to essay the champion who won the country's first individual gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
