Heres how Anil and Harshvardhan Kapoor were roped in for Thar 

Father-son duo Anil and Harshvardhan Kapoor are all set to impress the audience with their soon to be released neo western thriller 'Thar'. This is second project together for the duo as they previously shared screen in 'AK vs AK'. In a recent media interaction, 'Thar' director Raj Singh Chaudhary revealed how he managed to get Harshvardhan and Anil onboard.

Raj shared that he locked on to Harshvardhan for the main lead as soon as he saw the trailer for 'Mirzya'. "He had those eyes and face that I needed for Thar. I spoke to Vikramaditya Motwane. Harsh was doing Bhavesh Joshi with him at that point of time. I asked Vikram to introduce me to Harsh and we moved ahead with the film," Raj told PTI.

Talking about Anil's casting, Raj shared, "We wanted one character to be played by Anil sir. He read the script and he really liked it but since I’m a new director he was sceptical about it. Will I be able to pull it off? Trusting someone new is a big risk for him, he told me and Harsh to shoot three scenes properly with a film camera… we edited it, with the score, and we showed it to him. He really liked it and that is how he came on board. We then worked more on the script, then Netflix came on board."

'Thar' will release on 6th of May exclusively on Netflix.
