If life doesn’t move in a straight line, why should cinema? This is what actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor says of cinema. Son of Anil Kapoor, Harsh made his acting debut with the Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra-directed romance drama Mirzya, and followed it up with Vikramaditya Motwane’s action thriller Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.
The actor, 30, who started his journey in the entertainment industry as an assistant director on Anurag Kashyap’s 2015 film Bombay Velvet, believes it is important to have variations in films.
Harsh will be seen in Ray, a Netflix anthology series based on the short stories written by legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray.
One can be talented, but that may not come through if the process of filmmaking is too “self-serious”, believes Harsh, who thoroughly enjoyed Bala’s working style.
