Harshvardhan slogs it out for new film


Harshvardhan Kapoor

Harshvardhan Kapoor who will next be seen in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Bhavesh Joshi, has three distinct looks in the film – a skinny college-geek, a middle-aged-bald man and a muscular vigilante and went all out to transform into each of his drastically different looks. The actor first dropped over 6 kg through intense cardio last year to play the college boy and then sported a fake paunch and a bald patch for his middle-aged avatar.

To look the part of the muscular vigilante, Harsh trained in martial arts with MMA fighter Andrew Neal, for specific sequences that include hand-to-hand comba and mixed martial arts action scenes. The young star even met with an injury while shooting last week, but continued training, hitting the gym even after 14-hour shifts.

Says Harsh, “Even after long shifts, I hit the gym as I have to try and hold on to as much muscle as possible while filming intense action scenes. I hurt my head and I cut my arms badly in two places while trying a jump, but it’s fine. It’s all part of acting.”​
