Anil Kapoor is excited to be part of the biopic 'Bindra'

Actor Anil kapoor , who recently met Apjit Bindra, says he is excited to play the father of Abhinav Bindra , an Olympic gold medalist shooter, and that the journey of the sport personality is worth telling on the big screen.

Great stories deserve to be told and we had the pleasure of understanding the family's journey and Abhinav Bindra's career graph. This is a film that we're all excited to bring to the silver screen, Anil said in a statement.

The biopic will be managed by Kannan Iyer and will have Anil's son Harshvardhan Kapoor playing Abhinav's character in the movie.

Abhinav Bindra became the first Indian sportsperson to win an individual gold medal at the Olympics, when he won the 10m Air Rifle event at the 2008 games held in Beijing.
