Anil Kapoor To Co-produce Abhinav Bindra Biopic Starring Son Harshvardhan
A source says, "Anil has loved the script and is very excited about the project. Ditto for Harshvardhan. October will see a celebration moment in the Kapoor household when father and son step out together to report on the sets."
Anil has not yet spoken about this film officially. At the Dadasaheb Phalke Awards recently, he had merely said, "It’s too early to speak about the Abhinav Bindra film. Once everything is finalised, I’ll talk about it. But talks are on. If God wishes, we will do a film together and it could be this one. I am very excited to work with him, but it is too early to speak about it.”
The Biopic Will Focus On The Relationship Between Olympic Shooter Abhinav Bindra And His Father
Prerna Arora has been equally kicked about the film. She had recently told a section of the media: "It's a great opportunity to work on a subject that has potential to inspire millions. Harsh is perfect for the part, and will do justice to it. When we watched Mirzya, his potential was evident. He is hardworking and passionate. We believe in the project even more since we have the duo (Anil-Harshvardhan) on board.
The biopic will reportedly focus on the relationship between Abhinav and his father.
