Anil Kapoor seeks Salman Khan’s help for son Harshvardhan


Harshvardhan Kapoor made his big Bollywood debut with Rakesh Omprakash Mehra’s directorial ‘Mirzya’. But despite all the hype around it, the film failed to take off at the box office. As such, daddy Anil Kapoor has decided to set his son’s career on track.

The ‘Mr India’ actor has sought the help of his good friend Salman Khan to guide Harshvardhan in his choice of films.

“Anil wanted to launch his son with a romantic film on a grand scale but Harsh wanted to do ‘Mirzya’. Anil now wants Salman to speak to him and give him guidance regarding his career. He met Salman recently to discuss this,” Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.

Salman is known to take newcomers under his wings and propel their career. He has launched starkids like Sonakshi Sinha, Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi, and has also extended support to Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan and Daisy Shah among others.

While Anil wants that his son should do a full-fledged romantic film, Harshvardhan seems to be quite confident in what he is looking for as an actor. He will be doing Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ and is also talks with Sriram Raghavan for the latter’s next project — an edgy, dark thriller about a musician, who fakes his own blindness.
