Anil Kapoor’s son in Bollywood?

If rumours are to be believed, Anil Kapoor is launching seven new faces in his upcoming home production. The film has been titled Saat Hindustani but, apparently, it isn’t about patriotism. Instead, the movie is about seven youngsters based in the United States of America. Some say, It is a film on Indian students studying in a college in America.

Earlier, Anil Kapoor has produced films such as Aaisha, Gandhi – My Father, and Badhaai Ho Badhaai besides a few more films. Reportedly, the cast of this new film is being finalised by Anil Kapoor himself! The movie is expected to be ready by October, this year. Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan who just turned 21, returned from USA after studying screenplay, writing and acting.

Speculation was rife that he would be a part of the cast. But, apparently, he has turned down two offers because he has something else on mind. Harshvardhan is believed to have received two offers, one each from Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Vikramaditya Motwane. Instead of acting, Hardshvardhan has shown interest in direction. The buzz is that, he’s currently working as an assistant director to Anurag Kashyap on his upcoming film, Bombay Velvet.

A source close to Harshvardhan told a newspaper, “He has utmost respect for both Rakeysh and Vikramaditya and was flattered that they thought of him for their films. But right now, Harsh wants to concentrate only on assisting Anurag. He wants to experience the process of filmmaking and learn the intricacies before moving in front of the camera.Harsh doesn’t want to live off his father’s name. He wants to start from scratch, like his dad did.

Bombay Velvet will hit the screens sometime in July and will star Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. Just in case Harshvardhan decides to take a detour from direction, papa Anil would be more than happy to launch him too!
