Anil Kapoor and Son Harshvardhan To Play Father-Son Onscreen
The Kapoor scion stepped into the Indian film industry in 2016 with Mirzya and amazed us with his acting. Though the movie tanked, it did help in kickstarting Harshvardhan Kapoor’s career as an actor. His sister, Sonam has already secured a place for herself and is doing well but is yet to reach the top slot. It is a pleasure to see the Kapoor kids taking forward the legacy of their dad, Anil Kapoor, who has been and is still one of the most respected and loved actors in India. But what’s more interesting to note is that the talented dad will share screen space with both his kids in different projects.
Our very own “Mr. India” is all set to play onscreen dad to his real-life son, Harshvardhan, in an upcoming movie based on the Olympic gold medallist, Abhinav Bindra’s life. Harshvardhan will play the ace shooter in the film while the senior Kapoor has been given the onus of playing the role of AS Bindra, Abhinav’s father, who, as per reports, has an agro-food business in Punjab.
The 27-year-old has already begun his preparations for the role and has been devoting hours in training to get in shape. The grapevine is now ripe with the news that Harshvardhan and dad Anil will jointly work on this biopic. “Harsh will leave for Chandigarh (Bindra’s hometown) along with his father, as soon as his next film Bhavesh Joshi releases in May, to begin work on the biopic,” a close source revealed.
The father-son duo has their calendars booked from July to October to research and learn more about the Bindras. They have plans to meet Bindra and his family to ensure they get their respective characters right. The movie is expected to go on the floors early next year and we are more than excited to see the real-life father and son play reel roles.
There is another reason for all the Kapoor fans to rejoice. Dad Kapoor will also be seen sharing the screen space with his daughter Sonam in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, directed by Shelly Chopra, which is slated to release in October this year. Yayyy to that!
