Anil and Harshvardhan Kapoor will play father and son on screen as well in the Abhinav Bindra biopic directed by Ek Thi Daayan director Kannan Iyer. While Harsh will essay the role of theWorld and Olympic champion shooter, Anil plays Abhinav’s dad, Chandigarh-based millionaire industrialist AS Bindra, who runs a successful agro-food business in Punjab.
Says an insider, “The finance, cast, studio and script are all in place. Abhinav has given the go-ahead. Right now, they are figuring out the dates as they want to start shooting in summer. Anil is currently in London, shooting.”
The source adds that AS was the backbone behind Abhinav’s victory. “After Abhinav returned from the Sydney Olympics, his father invested in a farmhouse where Abhinav could stay and shoot. He always arranged the best for his son. For over 20 years, he has helped his son pursue his dream. Anil loved the script and has given the nod.”
