Harshvardhan Kapoor, who made his debut with MIRZYA, will next be seen in Vikramaditya Motwane’s BHAVESH JOSHI.
Harshvardhan has donned three distinct looks in the film, a skinny, college-geek and a middle aged-bald man and a muscular vigilante and went all out to transform into each of his drastically different looks.
Well he is not the only actor to do so, there are other actors in the past like Aamir Khan did for DANGAL, much recently we saw Rajkummar Rao did it for TRAPPED.
And now Harsh is following the footsteps, gaining and losing weight isn’t easy nor was it for Junior Kapoor.
The actor first dropped over 6 kgs 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 combat 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.
Speaking about his intense workout for the role Harsh says, “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.”
Here’s wishing him all the very best for his next film!
