Harshvardhan Kapoor Skips Birthday Celebrations

Mirzya’s debutant Harshvardhan Kapoor who turned 26 on Tuesday is no  no mood to celebrate.

“I don’t like to celebrate .I am prepping for the next schedule of my next film BhaveshJoshi. I am fully focused on that. It’s going to be a killer of a movie, I can assure you.We are  trying to make a rocking intense  film.”

According to Harshavradhan , Vikramditya Motwane’s Bhavesh Joshi where the young actor plays a vigilante,  is a completely different world from Mirzya.

Mirzya is surreal, poetic. Bhavesh Joshi is set in contemporary times . The issues it addresses concern all Indians very deeply,” says Harshvardhan who sees this film as his political education, and also his initiation into the world of street action, as Bhavesh Joshi contains some raw gritty fight scenes shot on the streets of Mumbai.

“The entire film is shot on real locations in Mumbai. It is the opposite of a fantasy,” says Harshvardhan who says  he is very proud of Mirzya. “It’s a script I surrendered to completely because I completely believed in my director’s vision.When I look back on the film I feel there’s nothing I’d change in it.”

He sees a parallel between his sister’s debut and his own. “After Mirzya I am at a situation and place where Sonam was after her first film Saawariya.”

The young fiercely dedicated actor feels the audience is missing some of layers and nuances in the storytelling. “We as people are in a hurry.And in this hurry we tend to miss out on the finer points. That’s okay. I am confident my film will finds its audience eventually. Some of my father’s best  films Parinda, 1942: A Love Story,Pukar and Lamhe got a mixed response on release. And Naayak which is one of his most popular films today was not a success when released.”
