Harshvardhan Kapoor seems to be gearing up for a dream debut, with back-to-back movies, Mirzya and Bhavesh Joshi lined up. The young actor plays four different roles in the two films, and is exhausted. In Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya the actor is cast as two characters, since the story is set in different eras. Harshvardhan stated that it was like shooting two different films. And now, for Vikramaditya Motwane’s Bhavesh Joshi, he will portray the same character set in two different time frames. Harshvardhan says, “There are heavy and exhausting tonal shifts in the character. And due to time constraints, I didn’t get the time to prepare for the role.”

The outdoor locations, says Harshvardhan, are also gruelling. “We are shooting on actual locations in various parts of Mumbai for extremely long hours,” he adds. For Vikramaditya’s film, scenes are being shot guerrilla-like by night in Mumbai to avoid crowd of fans who already recognise and mob Harshvardhan. In retrospect, the actor says that preparing for Mirzya was easier. He says, “We had all the time in the world for Mirzya. We worked at a far more leisurely pace. I even had time to prepare between takes. Vikramaditya’s approach to filmmaking is far more urgent.”

 

For a two-film old actor, Harshavardhan admits he is excessively demanding on himself. He says, “I’m self-critical at times. I keep thinking if I could have done things better. But Vikramidtya is a wonderful auteur. He sees the film clearly and works out editing patterns in his mind.”
