Harshvardhan Kapoor, who will make his acting debut with director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya, had to learn to ride a bike, and also do stunts on it for his role in the film.
Harshvardhan Kapoor who recently made his first industry appearance at the music launch of the film has learnt the skill of bike riding for Mirzya.
While the actor was in news for also learning horse riding as his character required to do so, Harsh has also picked up on riding the bike for Mirzya.
In fact the actor has done much more then just riding the bike. Harsh has also learnt on the skill of how to do a wheelie on the bike.
The actors character required to actually perform several stunts on the bike. And so to perfect these skills, Harsh first had to learn how to ride the bike.
When contacted, Harshvardhan confirmed the news, and said, “I had never ridden a bike before, let alone do stunts on it. But Rakeysh sir convinced me that it was important for my character. The confidence he had in me made me do it. I practiced in Mumbai.”
Also the reason why Harsh has never ridden the bike before was because the actors family never allowed him to ride the two wheeler as it involves several risk factors.
However the actor has created immense buzz around his debut considering the actor also belongs to a film family.
The music of the film is receiving great accolades, it’s been a long time that a music of this distinct flavor was created in Bollywood.
Starting Harshvardhan and Saiyami in lead roles, Produced by Cinestaan Film Company & ROMP Pictures and directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Mirzya releases on 7th October 2016
