Two-film old Harshvardhan Kapoor says he believes in ensuring his work mirrors “authenticity” and it is something that he will never compromise on.
The actor, who will next be seen playing the role of Abhinav Bindra, says the biopic on the Olympic gold medallist will be an “honest” portrayal of the subject.
“I don’t compromise and I try to do things as close to real as possible. And the Bindra biopic will follow the same template which is why it has taken us so long to get the film together because we have tried to be honest,” Harshvardhan told agencies in an email interview.
The actor, who was last seen in Vikramaditya Motwane’s “Bhavesh Joshi Superhero”, says both of his films till date are “real and original” pieces of work.
“… There is no fluff. The Bindra biopic will follow the same template. That is why for me making movies is a more time-consuming process because I really believe in authenticity,” he adds.
Harshvardhan made his Bollywood debut with 2016’s “Mirzya”, which like his last release did not do well at the box office. His performance was, however, was appreciated by the critics.
The actor is realistic when it comes to the mercurial nature of the trade and says he cannot predict how his films will fare at the ticket window.
He, however, adds, “But when you watch my movie, I can promise you one thing that it is going to be different from anything you have ever seen before. It is the same with Bindra.
“It is going to be very authentic to who is he as a person and he is very unique man and he has had a very unique journey so looking forward to another original film. One thing that I can promise you is it’s very true to who he is for sure.”
His sister, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has established herself as an actor and a fashionista and with Reebok India, now Harshvardhan is also taking steps to find his style statement.
Last week in Mumbai, the actor showcased Reebok India’s Fall Winter 18 collection.
Talking about the clothing line, Harshvardhan says, “Reebok is really trying to make streetwear fashionable and comfortable and it’s also very pro Mumbai weather. So I think it’s a perfect fit and it’s also a lot more reasonably priced than some of the other brands.
