Actor Harshvardhan Kapoor will share screenspace with father, Anil Kapoor for a new film based on Olympic Gold Medallist Abhinav Bindra. The project will be directed by Kannan Iyer.
Harshvardhan will play Abhinav in the film, while Anil will play his father – a Chandigarh based multi-millionaire.
According to a report featured in DNA, a source close to the industry said, “The finance, cast, studio and script are all in place. Abhinav has given the go-ahead. Right now, they are figuring out the dates as they want to start shooting in summer. Anil is currently in London, shooting.”
The film will focus on the extra-ordinary lengths Abhinav’s father went to secure his son’s future.“After Abhinav returned from the Sydney Olympics, his father invested in a farmhouse where Abhinav could stay and shoot. He always arranged the best for his son. For over 20 years, he has helped his son pursue his dream. Anil loved the script and has given the nod,” the source added.
Meanwhile, Harshvardhan is busy with the shoot of Vikaramaditya Motwane’s Bhavesh Joshi where he will be seen along with Priyanshu Painyuli and Radhika Apte.
The 26-year-old actor marked his acting debut with the 2016 movie, Mirziya opposite Saiyami Kher.
