Director Kannan Iyer, who is helming Abhinav Bindra biopic, insights that the Olympic gold medallist- Abhinav Bindra may show up in the upcoming film on his life. The yet-to-be-titled motion picture is being adjusted from Bindra’s life account – ‘A Shot at History: My Obsessive Journey to Olympic Gold and Beyond’.
When inquired as to whether Bindra would show up in the film, Kannan said,”Yes, perhaps towards the end, it is a sort of convention in sports biopics, isn’t it? But then there’s a lot that is yet to be decided- he said.
The plot of the film, which highlights Harshvardhan Kapoor ahead of the pack part, will practically work out on the lines of the book, he said. “He has composed a book, so we are passing by that. He has adored the content and is constantly accessible for counsel.”
The ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ director uncovers Harshvardhan has started his preparation under a well-trained shooter. As of late, the “Mirzya” on-screen character posted a concise video holding a firearm and tuning into the guidelines of a specialist. “He will be preparing for quite a while under the world-class shooter Suma Shirur, trailed by sessions with Abhinav.”
The real-life father-child duo of Anil Kapoor and Harshvardhan will be sharing screen space surprisingly for Bindra’s biopic. “Both are such great on-screen characters that they can do anything on the screen. ‘. I believe that they will make a dynamite showing with regards to their characters,” said Kannan.
He also reveals that “There will be a romance segment in the film too. what is more probable is there will be another individual. Yet, it is too soon to discuss it.” The film will be shot for the most part in Chandigarh; a few segments will be shot abroad and the Olympic part will be shot on the sets in Mumbai.
