“I got my first salary for ‘Bhavesh Joshi’. I haven’t got anything for ‘Mirzya’ yet. I feel comfortable with seeing myself on screen be it the trailer or my first poster or magazine cover. I have grown up in a film family so I have grown up seeing all this,” Harshvardhan told PTI.
Before starting the work on “Mirzya” Harshvardhan worked one and half years to prepare for his role. And for the 25-year-old actor, the process was both rewarding and frustrating.
“I don’t do things until I am fully prepared. I can do one thing for three years also. I am very patient. Without the prep work, it’s not possible to achieve what I have done in the film,” he said.
“I was so overwhelmed by the process that by the time I reach (sets for shooting) I was ready to deliver. I used that as emotional impetus for the scenes,” he added.
Harshvardhan chose to make his debut with “Mirzya” as opposed to the regular songs and dance fare. Shedding away his usual self, the actor has donned a completely different look. The youngster even went few shades darker.
“I think that (capturing the look) is Mehra’s magic…It is nothing about me. Its a director’s medium so it’s about how they choose to present you. Mehra is the best. Also, the prep of 18 months helped. It (prep time) was like a film in itself,” he added.
The first scene that Harshvardhan shot was a polo sequence and he took two days to film the scene. “It was a polo sequence I was galloping on a horse. We shot it for two days it was very tough. Then there was a scene
with Saiyami (his co-star) it was one of the light scenes we shot it in Udaipur,” he said.
Ask him if it happened in one take considering he had trained for over a year for the film, Harshvardhan says, “With Mehra, nothing happens in one take, even if it is a perfect shot. Even I like doing things multiple times. Like there may be something good about the first take and then seventh take and then you edit it and blend it.”
He also recollected his first dialogue before the camera which was, ‘Mirza aise faltu kaam nahi karta’. “It’s a beautiful scene,” he added. The film also starring Saiyami Kher is set to release on October 7
