Actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor, son of actor Anil Kapoor, has said that he values his privacy, and cannot keep up with the demands of posting new ‘gym looks’ every day.
In an interview, he joked that he is ‘a very boring guy’, which is why he ‘doesn’t have a girlfriend’. He said that he prefers talking to the media only about work, and then ‘disappearing’.
He told a leading daily, “For me, personally, I don’t think I can do the whole gym look every day; I would just go crazy and run away or something (laughs). I need my privacy. The way that I see it — and maybe it’s a bit naive and idealistic — but I like to do a film, talk about it, and then disappear.”
He continued, “I’m a very boring guy, which is why I don’t have a girlfriend (chuckles). And if that’s what the paparazzi thinks, so be it. I’m comfortable with that. And I’d rather just honestly do the films and have people say good things about the work. But then again the limelight works for some people, they’re really good at it. But I don’t really have a problem with being out of the limelight.”
Harsh made his debut with the ill-fated Mirzya, and followed it up with another box office disappointment, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero. He was featured in a cameo in last year’s AK vs AK, starring his father and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap as exaggerated versions of themselves.

He will next be seen in director Vasan Bala’s segment in the upcoming Netflix anthology film Ray, based on the short stories of Satyajit Ray. He said that filming on the Abhinav Bindra biopic, in which he stars, once again, with his father, will commence towards the end of 2022.
