'Bhavesh Joshi Superhero' will help me to reach out to more people, says Harshvardhan Kapoor
'Bhavesh Joshi Superhero' is an upcoming Indian martial art action film, under Phantom Films banner which will release on June 1. Harshvardhan Kapoor plays the central character in the film that has been directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
The film will be clashing with Harshvardhan`s elder sister Sonam Kapoor`s 'Veere Di Wedding'.
In this film, a group of young friends set out to challenge the wrong and do the right. A corrupt politician tries to stop them and kills one the friend in the group. This forces Siku (protagonist - played by Kapoor) to become a vigilante to revenge his friend's death and stop the wrong activities and the corrupt politician
The actor gave a statement in the mall saying ''People are starved for new kind of films.''
While promoting his film the actor was asked what kind of films does he prefer doing to which he replied: "I think I am too new and I think this film will help me to reach out to more people. So, I am taking small steps. The idea is to try and do new films so that`s a more challenging road.
"It`s not always easy, but I think the audience is very intelligent and they want new films as they have seen same things so many times over and over again. I think as a young kid or guy, it`s my responsibility to do new kind of films because I think people are starved of it. So that`s what I am trying to do." he added
The actor will be seen in a Superhero form performing a lot of deathly stunts.
When asked about his experience while doing these stunts he said that
"It was very tough but not really because we loved the film and we believe in the film. We believe that people want new and innovative films. It`s a great privilege to get a chance to make those movies, so we have gone out there and done it. Now it`s for the people (to see), so we hope they like it."
'Bhavesh Joshi Superhero' has its concept which says standing up against wrong is never easy but those who do set an example for others
Reporters had a lot of questions for Harshvardhan out of which one was that -Has he ever fought for injustice in his personal life?
"No... But I think I do it in certain ways in my own life because I am trying to do something through the medium of films. Hopefully, this film turns out to be an important one and I truly believe that no film really changes your life but it definitely plants a seed in your head.
"I think films like `Rang De Basanti` and `Pink` have done it earlier, but what Vikram (Vikramaditya Motwane) has managed to do is that he has managed to tell a very important story in a very entertaining way. I think being part of this film, I have become more aware of things.
"I also think twice before I break the law, not in a big way but in a small way which we feel guilty of doing on a day-to-day basis. So, after watching the film, hopefully, people will resonate with the message of the film."
