Speaking of Thar, Anil Kapoor stated in a statement that the film was offered to him by his son. He said: “Harshvarrdhan has a very unique approach and his choice of films is also very different. The film was brought to me by Harshvarrdhan and was very passionate about the project and played an integral role in this film. The story creates the perfect balance between rough and sleek, grainy and smooth, fast, yet gentle. It’s Harshvarrdhan’s first film as a producer, and I’ve seen passion in it from the beginning. Thar is an experience and I can’t wait for the audience to see it! “
Harshvarrdhan Kapoor said Thar was “the most educated experience” for him. “When I read Thar, I immediately realized that he was unique in his mood, atmosphere and tone, as well as his narration. I realized that I was in a situation where I would have to keep to get what was on the page to the screen without any compromise. For such an ambitious film, I must have had a great learning in front of and behind the camera. I believe that of the few films I have made so far, Thar has been the most educated experience for me. We tried to do something else and we are excited to share it with audiences around the world with Netflix, “he said.
