Mr Kapoor has made it a point to spend some time with Harshvardhan to narrate incidents from his younger days as an actor.
"It is an extremely special year for me as my son is making his debut. There is a lot that I have learnt from my own experiences which I have shared with him," Mr Kapoor said in a statement.
Anil Kapoor, who has garnered international fame with films like Slumdog Millionaire and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, also shared that his son is a "quick learner."
"It is surprising that he already has such a deep understanding of things. He is a quick learner who is enthusiastically waiting to explore this world. I hope that my advice comes handy to him in his journey," added Mr Kapoor.

Inspired by the folk tale of The legend of Mirza-Sahiban, the film is pegged to be an epic action-romance that plays out in contemporary times.
It features dramatic as well as action-packed sequences in the visually rich terrain of Rajasthan, juxtaposed with flashes of the fantastical universe of the folklore set in the bleakness of Ladakh.
Mirzya will release on October 7.
