Contrary to recent rumours, news now has it that the Abhinav Bindra biopic which will star father-son duo Anil Kapoor and Harshvardhan Kapoor has only been delayed, rather than shelved.
Junior Kapoor is set to play the Olympian shooter from the age of 15 to well into his adult life. Talking to the media about his role, Deccan Chronicle reports the actor express, “I am playing him from the age of 15 till 35, which makes up two decades. So basically, there will be reverse aging. And there will be VFX, weight loss prosthetics and other variants in the film. It will be like other films and will take time.”
A source was also talking to the media, who was reported revealing, “Last year Harshvardhan was working on mastering the shooting part and now, he is looking at his fitness and body shape for the film. Plus, Anil has been busy shooting films back to back from ‘Total Dhamaal’ (2019) to ‘Malang’ and he has to adjust his dates to when Harsh is in the right body and mindset to play the character.”
Directed by Kannan Iyer, the real life father and son will be playing the same on-screen.
