A biopic on the Olympian sharp-shooter Abhinav Bindra was announced years ago with Anil Kapoor and son Harshvarrdhan Kapoor playing the father-son characters. However, after years of script revisions and changes in the production house, reports suggest that the plug has been pulled out on the project.
