Harshil is a trained dancer and comes with a professional degree in acting from NYU Tisch School of Arts and the globally renowned Lee Strasberg Studio. Prior to 'TAJ’ he has also worked as an assistant director on projects like ‘Kedarnath’ and with Rajkumar Hirani Films, and Viacom18 and has been one of the eminent faces for last year's 'Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan IPL campaign.'
While much cannot be revealed about his character, Harshil added, “When I went to New York, I had a bucket list of 10 things that I wanted to do in my career and one of those was to share screen space with Naseer Sir. Honestly I thank my stars for having done that so early in my career. Naseer sir is an institution in himself. 'Taj: Divided by blood' happened by chance and I am glad it did. It was also a very creatively enriching experience to work with Rahul Bose. When Rahul Sir is around, you just know that you are going to be taken care of, he encouraged me and held my hand through the entirety of the shoot. I am very grateful to him for being so kind."
Talking about his character, Harshil further stated, "I play a character who is entirely parallel to my real-self. I am a typical boy-next-door, a SoBo boy whereas my character is a Mughal prince at war with his family and himself. To do justice to 'Afrasiyab's' character (his character from Taj), I had to prepare thoroughly. Firstly, I was required to have a natively authentic flow in Urdu, learn how to ride a horse & swing a sword! My character is a young and conflicted Mughal Prince who is forced by circumstances to fight for his family."
Talking about 'Taj: Divided by blood,' the magnum opus is produced by ZEE5 & Contiloe’s Abhimanyu Singh & Roopali Kadyan. It stars Naseeruddin Shah, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sandhya Mridul, Zareena Wahab, Aashim Gulati, Subodh Bhave, debutant Shubham Kumar Mehra, Rahul Bose & Dharmendra.
Harshil shall be seen playing Rahul Bose's on-screen son, 'Afrasiyab. The trailer of the royal web series has garnered a stupendous response across digital platforms.
