Mirzya was like falling in love for first time: Harshvardhan
Harshvardhan on Mirzya
Mirzya was like falling in love for first time:- Harshvardhan Kapoor’s debutant movie Mirzya, which is inspired by the tale of the legend of Mirza-Sahiban, will hit the theatres on October 7 and Anil Kapoor’s youngest child is confident and not stressed about the creative expectations, he’s nervous about its promotions.
“I don’t know whether we are doing the right thing or should we be doing something more. What if we had some more time in our hands for promotions? I hope it reaches to maximum people. I have been wondering about these things over the last few days.”
“I am a strongly opinionated person and fortunately Mehra (director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra) and others involved with the project do listen to me because it’s very important for people to experience who you really are,” says Harshvardhan.
Harshvardhan has a lot to tell about his debut film, Mirzya, “I was blown away by the complex, romantic and that kind of poetic script of Mirzya, which is also a musical. I realized that I was getting a chance to be a part of something so beautiful, and this was what suited my personality. It is very rare to find scripts that are so poetic and very romantic. When I was 22, I was reading so many other scripts but I feel this is the most contemporary romantic script ever.”
Mirzya, story of a legend
While, the biggest challenge for the 25-year-old actor was working on the film for almost three long years and to bring the popular folklore on screen. “I have given so much to this film that a part of me will die when it is out. When it releases that i will feel as if I have lost a part of me. I was so involved with every aspect of the film. I was doing something so creative for the first time with so much honesty. I can’t describe the feeling, it is like falling in love for the first time,” he says.
But why didn’t Harshvardhan preferred to start his career with a commercial candy-floss love story, a so-called safe film, instead of picking up a tragic love story?
He replied, “If we look at what is happening around us we can see that some of the most ‘unsafe’ films have also done well. So I feel I’m being safe by being unsafe. People are ready to see different cinema and if it doesn’t do well commercially still our work will be appreciated. There have been so many incredible moments, everybody will take something or the other,” says Harshvardhan, who considers Aamir Khan and Ranbir Kapoor as his inspiration.
