Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor was to entertain fans with Abhinav Bindra biopic which was announced in 2017. When a recent report suggested that the movie has been shelved, Anil Kapoor took to Twitter to shut down all rumours and wrote, “This is not true.” Interestingly, this film will not just feature Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor in the lead role, but Anil Kapoor has apparently been signed up to play Harsh’s reel life father.
The Abhinav Bindra biopic is being helmed by Kannan Iyer and will narrate the story of the former air rifle shooter’s autobiography, A Shot at History: My Obsessive Journey to Olympic Gold and Beyond.. Back in 2017, Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor had posted a picture with Abhinav Bindra and shared, “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!”
The film will be their second collaboration after Vikramaditya Motwane’s AK vs AK, which had Anil playing the lead role alongside Anurag Kashyap, and Harsh Varrdhan in a cameo. Other members of the Kapoor family such as Sonam Kapoor and Boney Kapoor also made special appearances in the Netflix film.
