After making a successful debut with director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Mirzya’ (2016) alongside Saiyami Kher, Bollywood actor Harshvardhan Kapoor is working quite hard for his second flick ‘Bhavesh Joshi’.

   Reportedly, the actor has three distinct looks in the film – a skinny college geek, a middle-aged bald man and a muscular vigilante. He went all out to transform himself for each of his drastically different looks.

Interestingly, the actor lost over six kg through intense cardio to play the college boy and then sported a fake paunch and a bald patch for his middle-aged avatar. Kapoor is also getting trained in martial arts with MMA fighter Andrew Neal for specific sequences that include hand-to-hand combat and mixed martial arts action sequences.

Moreover, the newest Kapoor is busy hitting the gym even after a 14-hour shift and despite facing an injury on the sets, last week.

“Even after the 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”, said the 26-year-old.

Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, the movie also features Radhika Apte and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.
