After making his debut in Rakesh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya in 2016, Harshvardhan Kapoor is all set to return to the silver screen in Vikramaditya Motwane's Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.
Phantom Films shared the news on Twitter along with two posters for the film. They wrote, “Presenting the first look of @VikramMotwane's next film #BhaveshJoshiSuperhero, starring @HarshKapoor_ Releasing on 25th May. @ErosNow @RelianceEnt #VikasBahl @MadhuMantena @anuragkashyap72”. The posters in all their comic glory and sketchy overtones feature eye-popping background colours with a silhouette of Harshvardhan.
In an interview earlier, Harshvardhan spoke about the film and clarified that although it looks like a superhero film, it is much more than that. It revolves around the story of a young man's quest for revenge and his destiny to serve for something much bigger in life. This film is sure to pack a few punches at the box-office with its with well-crafted action sequences.
Speaking about his director, Vikramaditya Motwane, who has previously helmed intense dramas such as Lootera, Udaan and Trapped, Harsh informed a leading daily, "It’s Vikramaditya Motwane so you can trust him to do something original. I am still so new in acting and it has been my second experience. I am very blessed to have two amazing directors. They are my favourite directors in India. I have worked with them in my first two films.”
Even Vikramaditya had all good things to say about his star. He said, “He is such a passionate actor and person. I had a great time. I am really excited about the film. It turned out really well.”
Before Harshvardhan came on board for the vigilante drama, actors such as Sidharth Malhotra and Imran Khan were considered for the role. When asked about it, he said, “I don’t think when you will watch it, you will think of Imran Khan or Sidharth Malhotra. You will only think of Harshvardhan Kapoor as Bhavesh Joshi. Vikramaditya Motwane is a brilliant director. I don’t know why Imran and Sidharth did not do it. I thank God I got the chance to do it.”
Apart from Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, Harshvardhan is currently busy with Abhinav Bindra, Olympic gold medalist biopic.
