Actor Harshvardhan Kapoor, who made his Bollywood debut in 2016 with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya, will next headline Abhinav Bindra's biopic. The audience has high hopes pinned on Kapoor and is expecting nothing less from the actor who delivered a stellar performance in his first film.
It is learnt that the highly anticipated biopic is a coming-of-age story that will showcase Bindra’s growth and transition from childhood to adulthood, as he trains to be a professional shooter. In order to ace the role, Harshvardhan will be required to lose and gain weight to look younger and older respectively. Making the actor appear believable and authentic as he ages in the film will also involve the use of prosthetics and VFX.
Reveals a source, “Harshvardhan needs to gain and lose weight to not only appear authentic but also to be able to make the necessary impact with the film by showing Bindra’s transition, as he ages in the movie. The actor will be essaying Bindra’s character as a young child and as India's first ever Olympic champion who earned a gold medal in Beijing in 2008 and finished at the fourth place in Rio De Janeiro in the year 2016.”
