One movie old Harshvardhan Kapoor is currently busy with his second movie, but that has not stopped him from being noticed or signing more stuff. He underwent rigorous training for his first movie ‘Mirzya’, and while the movie was not a commercial hit, it was praised quite a lot by the critics.

The Kapoor boy has now signed his third movie which is a biopic on Abhinav Bindra. He took to his Instagram profile to share the happy news with everyone.
Beginnings are very special. Especially when you get to play a character that has made the nation proud on world stage. I am stoked to have been chosen to play #AbhinavBindra and hopefully will do justice to the man, the legend! Like the man himself said “Hard Work is a talent.” #LetsDoThis
“The biopic is a big responsibility because of the subject matter. It is the most mammoth responsibility I’ve ever shouldered. I roped in Abhay, who wrote the final draft of Bhavesh Joshi, to work on a new draft of the Bindra biopic. We are taking the script into a really exciting place. It’s about externalising internal conflicts, and making it emotionally and visually spectacular”, he mentioned in an interview. Abhinav Bindra is an Olympic gold medallist in shooting and is also a recipient of the Padma Bhushan. He won gold at the Beijing Olympics 2008 in the 10m air rifle tournament.

Interestingly, his sister, Sonam Kapoor’s success story also includes a biopic on Neerja Bhanot, which even earned her a National Award. Harshvardhan is currently shooting for Aditya Motwane’s ‘Bhavesh Joshi’. He is already preparing for this biopic and has been spotted at a shooting range with Abhinav’s coach.
Am I allowed to have two quotes in the same picture? Anyway, whatever the board says… #ItsTheWeekend #LongWekendIsHere #IWillFunctionProperlyOnMonday
Bollywood is currently obsessed with biopics and there’s a plethora of them that are in the pipeline and some of them are already a huge success. ‘Dangal’ has already set a super high benchmark with its mad success not just in India, but also in Hong Kong and China. ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ‘Paan Singh Tomar’, ‘Mary Kom’, and a biopic on Dhoni are some of the major movies made in sports genre that have enjoyed a great run at the box office.
