His launch vehicle may not have lived upto the expectations but Bollywood producers and directors are still sure that Harman Baweja is a star in the making.
The failure of Love Story 2050 may not be of much consequence to Harman’s acting career. Even before the film’s release on July 4, he had signed movies with the likes of Ashutosh Gowarikar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali .
And though there have been rumours that the filmmakers are having second thoughts about working with Harman after his fairly mediocre launch, the fact is that the folks in Bollywood are still backing him.
Gossip has been abuzz that Bhansali is thinking of showing Harman the door from his home production Chenab Gandhi , to be directed by Vibhu Puri. But the director-producer denies it.
Bhansali has not just reconfirmed Harman’s presence in ‘Chenab Gandhi’ (also starring Amitabh Bachchan ), he says he is thinking of signing Harman for another film to be directed by Bhansali himself.
On another front, director Anees Bazmee has also denied that Harman is dropped from a film to be directed by him.
And last but not the least, Ashutosh Gowarikar is fully convinced that Harman and Priyanka Chopra are perfectly suited to play the romantic lead in his film What’s Your Raashi .
Well, Harman has nothing to complain about.
