He captioned his tweet as, “This is not true. Apna source check Karo ” clearly condemning the rumors. The reports claimed that Anil Kapoor and Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor are currently working upon another film, titled ‘Thar’, directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Raj Singh Choudhary, and has put a hold on to the Abhinav Bindra Biopic. The shooting for the said film is being gone on in Rajasthan and will also star Fatima Sana Shaikh.
The Abhinav Bindra biopic, directed by Kannan Iyer, is being adapted from the former air rifle shooter’s autobiography, A Shot at History: My Obsessive Journey to Olympic Gold and Beyond. Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor will be having a lead role in the biopic and will play Abhinav while Anil Kapoor will be seen playing his father. This film will be their second collaboration after Vikramaditya Motwane’s AK vs AK, starring Anil Kapoor in the lead role alongside Anurag Kashyap, and Harsh Varrdhan in a cameo.
AK vs AK is a 2020 Indian black comedy thriller film, released on December 24, 2020, on Netflix. Not only Anil and Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor, other members of the Kapoor family such as Sonam Kapoor and Boney Kapoor also made special appearances in the Netflix film.
Director Kannan Iyer told the reports that Abhinav might make an appearance in the film. He stated, “Yes, possibly towards the end, it is a kind of tradition in sports biopics but we are yet to decide”.
He also talked about Anil and Harsh Varrdhan starring together in the film and added, “Both are such good actors that they can do anything on the screen. Dil Dhadakne Do showed a beautiful relationship between Anil and Ranveer Singh as father and son… And they will do a terrific job.”
Fans can’t wait to watch this terrific father-son duo together on the screen again.
