    Even before Vikramaditya Motwane's Bhavesh Joshi could hit the big screens, Harshvardhan Kapoor has already signed his third film. The Mirziya actor has been cast as the main lead in a biopic on Olympic Gold Medalist Abhinav Bindra.

    The sportsman had won the gold medal in rifle shooting at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

    Here comes the official announcement straight from the horse's mouth. Scroll down to read more...

    A Picture Says It All

    Harshvardhan shared a picture with Abhinav and captioned it as, "Beginnings are very special. Especially when you get to play a character that has made the nation proud on world stage. I am stoked to have been chosen to play #AbhinavBindra and hopefully will do justice to the man, the legend!"

    Abhinav Will Be Closely Associated With The Film

    Abhinav who has now retired from the sport, looks happy to come onboard and will be closely related to the film.

    The Biopic Is A Big Responsibility

    Earlier, Harshvardhan was quoted as saying to Mid-Day, "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."

    The Preparations Have Already Began

    We hear that Harshvardhan has already started prepping up for the film. In fact, he recently visited the Navi Mumbai shooting range to meet Abhinav's coach.

    On The Personal Front

    The actor was rumored to be dating Sara Ali Khan. But recently, there were reports that the couple had now called it quits.
