The Abhinav Bindra Biopic is highly based on Bindra's autobiography, titled, A Shot at History: My Obsessive Journey to Olympic Gold and Beyond. Back in 2017, Harshvardhan announced on social media that he was thrilled to be part of the biopic. "Beginnings are very special. Especially when you get to play a character that has made the nation proud on the world stage.
"I am stoked to have been chosen to play #AbhinavBindra and hopefully will do justice to the man, the legend! Like the man himself said, 'Hard Work is a talent.' #LetsDoThis," he added.
Harshvardhan's superhero film Bhavesh Joshi came out a year later in 2018, as his third film and got him some fame at the time, but the actor has mostly stayed away from the limelight in prep for his next project.
