Earlier, Harshvardhan had revealed:
”The biopic is a big responsibility because of the subject matter. It is the most mammoth responsibility I’ve ever shouldered. I roped in Abhay, who wrote the final draft of Bhavesh Joshi, to work on a new draft of the Bindra biopic. We are taking the script into a really exciting place. It’s about externalising internal conflicts, and making it emotionally and visually spectacular.”
As per early reports, Harshvardhan has already started prepping for the role. He recently visited the Navi Mumbai shooting range to meet Abhinav’s coach.
