Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor opened up about keeping his doors open for the opportunity to work in Hollywood and how Priyanka Chopra coming on board cost him The White Tiger.
If you are the son or daughter of a Bollywood star, you are bound to make your way into the industry and the secret is to start off with a few formula movies. However, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor’s son Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor took a road less-travelled. He opted for scripts which were unconventional and risky and critics love him for making that move. Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor’s recent appearance in Ray has been appreciated a lot by review writers, and he recently revealed that he also auditioned for Netflix’s The White Tiger.
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor said: “I have auditioned for several Hollywood films. For The White Tiger, I auditioned for Rajkummar Rao’s role. I almost got it as well. They really liked me for it. But I think Priyanka Chopra kind of came on board and they wanted a slightly older actor, and I look very young, I am a lot younger and obviously Rajkummar is such a phenomenal actor as well. But that was kind of a close call there. I do have one eye on West and I do believe on the power of manifestation.”
Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor also spoke about wanting to work in Hollywood sooner or later. He continued: “I have always had one eye on the West. I don’t know if it’s going to happen or not. The way of working, to what I have been exposed to, I don’t think I would be out of place. But obviously it’s beyond my control. If something happens, I will promise I will work very hard and cease the opportunity and give a good account of myself. It’s a door that I definitely want to open for myself.”
