However, in earlier interviews Harshvardhan Kapoor clarified that Vikramaditya directed Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is not a superhero film. The story of the movie revolves around the character who is on the revenge mission and in the process of that he discovers something way beyond his expectations. The graphic artwork hints towards an out n out action movie with well-crafted fight sequences to look forward.
The teaser for the Bhavesh Joshi Superhero was also released today and oh boy! it sure looks cool & action packed. Various scenes in between the teaser undoubtedly remind you of Hollywood hit series like Deadpool. The teaser trailer has the dark and gritty feel to it. In the 1-minute teaser, we never get the glimpse of Harshvardhan, however, see him behind the mask. It opens with narrative in the grave and husky voice of the actor, saying “Hero paida nahi hota, banta hai (A hero is not born, he is created).” hearing that you get the assurance that movie will be a thrilling ride. In rest of the clip, we see him kicking asses of the goons throughout the Mumbai city.
Vikramaditya who is known for his out of the box stories is bound to deliver something exciting this summer, and with a teaser like this, the anticipation for the movie is at its peak. While discussing the film with Indian Express Harshvardhan said that “It’s Vikramaditya Motwane so you can trust him to do something original. I am still so new in acting, and it has been my second experience. I am very blessed to have two amazing directors. They are my favorite directors in India. I have worked with them in my first two films.”
Motwane was also all praise for the Kapoor as he tries to make his stand in the competitive Bollywood industry. Vikramaditya while discussing regarding Kapoor’s performance said that “He is such a passionate actor and person. I had a great time. I am excited about the film. It turned out well.”
The movie will hit the theaters on May 25th, and it will be interesting to see how Vikramaditya Motwane and Harshvardhan take this new genre ahead.
