Won’t have been able to do ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’ without ‘Mirzya’ experience: Harshvardhan Kapoor

Harshvardhan Kapoor, whose debut film “Mirzya” failed at the box office, says without its experience, he wouldn’t have been able to do the forthcoming “Bhavesh Joshi Superhero”. Asked how he dealt with the failure of his first film at the box office, he said, “To be honest, I kind of knew somewhere that we were trying to do something new and different. And whenever you try to do something new and different, you don’t always succeed. But I think for me, the success of ‘Mirzya’ personally was that I got to work with a director (Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra) that I have idolised. I love his movies and his vision was amazing and spectacular. To be a part of that was great.”

He said he got to learn a lot and improved a lot as an actor. “Had I not done ‘Mirzya’, without that experience I wouldn’t be able to do ‘Bhavesh Joshi…’. I don’t think I am the first actor whose film hasn’t made money and I am not going to be the last… You just got to keep working,” added the son of veteran actor Anil Kapoor.

“Bhavesh Joshi Superhero” is a superhero movie and Harshvardhan’s second project.

Speaking about the movie he said, “It is a dream come true for any young actor to play a superhero or vigilante. To be in the suit and wear a mask was a dream come true. I wanted to do this film since 2012 and it was an amazing experience working on this,” Harshvardhan told reporters at the trailer launch of “Bhavesh Joshi”.

 Aren’t there too many expectations at the box office? “It is very difficult to define success and failure. Of course, there is box office which is very important because it is business at the end of the day. But your life is your life and you will work on what fits right with you. It is an amazing film. And to be able to be part of a vision so huge at such a young age was really spectacular,” he added.
