Harshvardhan Kapoor is to star as an Olympic gold medalist shooter Abhinav bindra in his biopic. The biopic was announced in 2016 and it will go on floors by the end of this year with its first schedule shoot. Harshvardhan’s father and actor Anil Kapoor will also play his on screen father in this movie. Anil kapoor is very active on his social media accounts and he shared a picture with his son Harshvardhan and Abhinav bindra on his Insta handle on Sunday.
Directed by Heeraz Marfatia, the film is an adaptation of Abhinav bindra’s Autobiography titled A Shot At History: My Obsessive Journey To Olympic Gold And Beyond. Anil Kapoor captioned the picture he posted as: “The beginning… @harshvarrdhankapoor @abhinav_bindra”. This movie will bring the father- son duo together for the very first time on a big screen. Harshvardhan also expressed his emotions by sharing a picture with a caption that read: “The Abhinav Bindra Biopic which I agreed to do in October 2016 will start filming at the end of this year … very excited to have Heeraz Marfatia onboard to direct @saiwyn to write and @anilskapoor to co-star in my dream project .. sometimes films take time especially if you want to make them a certain way, I have always been clear about the films I want to do and this is no different. With Mirzya, we tried to do something new with the romantic musical with Bhavesh we broke new ground with the idea of what a superhero vigilante would be like in the real world and now this will be a biopic that’s different from the rest and that’s because @abhinav_bindra is a unique and exceptional man with an incredible story that almost no one knows and we will tell it without compromises the way it deserves to be told.. This will be my next film for the big screen #2021″
