Bhavesh Joshi x The batman”
Harsh Varrdhan, when asked about this encounter with Robert Pattinson, replied, “When I introduced myself to him, he greeted me warmly, and I said, `Hey, Rob, can I have a minute?` I congratulated him on his recent work and then mentioned that a few weeks ago, a fan had created a comparison reel between both films.

The unexpected encounter of these two actors, each with their distinct approach to the vigilante archetype, added a captivating dimension to their cinematic journeys. This unique moment of convergence in the heart of London`s entertainment hub left fans excited about their future projects.
While Bhavesh Joshi Superhero maintains its cult classic status in Hindi cinema, Harsh Varrdhan is gearing up for his forthcoming lead role as Abhinav Bindra, the Olympic Gold Medalist and Padma Bhushan Awardee, on the silver screen.
Talking about the delay in the making of the biopic, Harsh Varrdhan said in a previous interview with Times Of India, “Honestly, it was supposed to happen even before AK vs AK and Thar (the projects that he acted in recently). So, you see… we went ahead and made two films in the middle, but still not been able to start Abhinav Bindra biopic. It is just a very big responsibility. It’s like playing a real life person on the big screen. The story kind of takes place in a time period of 15-20 years. The attention to detail, production value etc all needs to be perfect. For a project like Thar we went to Rajasthan and shot for 2 months and finished it in one go. Likewise we shot AK vs AK in 20 days in Mumbai. But this film is a lot bigger. You have to be absolutely sure man and everybody (associated with the project) has to align.”
