Gen- X star Harshvardhan Kapoor who will next be seen in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Bhavesh Joshi, has 3 distinct looks in the film – a skinny college-geek , a middle aged-bald man and a muscular vigilante and went all out to transform into each of his drastically different looks.
The actor first dropped over 6 kgs through intense cardio last year to play the college boy and then sported a fake paunch and a bald patch for his middle-aged avatar.
To look the part of the muscular vigilante , Harsh trained in martial arts with MMA fighter Andrew Neal, for specific sequences that include hand-to-hand comba and mixed martial arts action scenes.
The young star even met with an injury while shooting last week, but continued training , hitting the gym even after 14-hour shifts.
Says Harsh, “ Even after long shifts , I hit the gym as I have to try and hold on to as much muscle as possible while filming intense action scenes. I hurt my head and I cut my arms badly in two places while trying a jump, but it’s fine. It’s all part of acting”.
