Actor Harshvardhan Kapoor, who will be playing the role of Olympics gold medallist Abhinav Bindra, feels the responsibility is more while doing a biopic.  

In the Bindra biopic, directed by Kanan Iyer, Harshvardhan will share screen space with father Anil. “With biopics, you have to make sure you’re doing justice to the person’s life story... there is responsibility. When you’re portraying someone’s life, there is so much more at stake because there are actual people and real feelings involved,” Harshvardhan told PTI. 

The actor said he was inspired by Bindra’s passion and commitment. He is also happy with the positive response to his last film Bhavesh Joshi on Netflix. With newer formats of entertainment available now, the actor said audiences are divided. “I think every film has its audience. In an age of fragmented media platforms, it is only natural for the audience to be fragmented too. As long as the film is being enjoyed and loved, I don’t think there is anything to worry about. With the digital landscape changing so dramatically, these shifts are bound to happen.” 
 
The Vikramaditya Motwane-directed film did not do that well commercially upon its theatrical release. “I gave it my all and left the rest up to the audience. As long as the film has longevity that’s the most important thing,” the actor said. PTI
