‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’: Not Harshvardhan but this superstar was the original choice
‘Mirzya’ actor Harshvardhan Kapoor will next be seen in ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’. The trailer of the film that us directed by Vikramaditya Motwane garnered much appreciation from the audience. The vigilante drama has the actor depicting the role of a student-turned-vigilante fighting corruption in the society.
Recently in an interview to PTI, the director revealed that Harshvardhan wasn’t the first choice for the film. Actor’s like Shahid Kapoor, Imran Khan and Sidharth Malhotra were all in talks to play the lead in his upcoming vigilante justice themed movie
Motwane said, “We spoke to Shahid, but it was very briefly… For this film, casting went through a lot of changes. Imran Khan was to be part of it, then it went to Sidharth Malhotra. With Imran it was like, his career wasn’t going well and we couldn’t raise the money. I am quite sad about it. With Sidharth, it just fell apart. With Shahid, it was just a conversation, it was never formulated.”
The director added, “The story explores love, friendship, anger and heroism, and its relevance in today’s times. It’s been with me for a very long time and I’m delighted at the way it’s turned out. The action sequences are awesome and I can’t wait for the audience to see it.” (Also Read: ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’: Item boy Arjun Kapoor is here to enthral with ‘Chavanprash’ song)
