Harshvardhan Kapoor is back in a quirky superhero avatar in the upcoming movie Bhavesh Joshi. The movie will be directed by Lootera fame Vikramaditya Motwane under the banner of Eros International, Reliance Entertainment, Vikas Bahl, Madhu Mantena and Anurag Kashyap. In this movie, the Kapoor lad will be seen as a vigilante in a quirky outfit.
The movie was going through turmoil as Motwane was not able to find out the exact cast for the lead role and the financer as well. Imran Khan and Sidharth Malhotra reportedly had rejected the role. There was also difficulty to find the producers of this big budget movie. Harshvardhan came to rescue when the movie was about to be shelved.
It was celebrity trade analyst Taran Adarsh who shared the poster of the movie on Twitter. “Presenting the first look poster of Vikramaditya Motwane’s #BhaveshJoshiSuperhero… Stars Harshvardhan Kapoor… Produced by Eros International, Reliance Entertainment, Vikas Bahl, Madhu Mantena and Anurag Kashyap… 25 May 2018 release,” he posted.
Just after the release posters, the makers also launched the teaser of the movie on YouTube. In this 85 seconds long trailer, we can see the story of a man in the quest for revenge only to find out that his destiny holds something bigger for him.
To execute the superhero stunts, Harshvardhan has gone through extensive physical training. In the teaser, he is seen to have ninja training to execute his call. After Krrish and Flying Jatt, another Indian superhero is on the way based on the concept of vigilante justice.
Harshvardhan spoke about the movie; “I first auditioned for Bhavesh Joshi as a 22-year-old even before I signed Mirzya. Vikram (Motwane) turned me down at the time because he felt I was too young and too inexperienced for the kind of film Bhavesh was. I was in love with the script and every time it didn’t work out with another actor, I would reach out to Vikram again and again. Eventually, after we had shot Mirzya, Vikram went over to Rakeysh Mehra sir’s office who showed him the rushes unedited. After that, Vikram called my agent and said that he wants to reopen the Bhavesh discussion. It was one of the happiest days of my life. From there, after a few months of talking and readings, we decided to make the film.”
The movie is being shot in few never seen before locations of Mumbai. The well-crafted action sequences are designed by the International team. The music of the movie is directed by talented Amit Trivedi and Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned down the lyrics. Hopefully, the movie will give Kapoor the much-needed ramble after the failure of his first film Mirzya.
