Mirzya is a love story which runs parallel between past and present, making comparisons on what would have happened if Punjab’s folklore of Mirza Sahiban would have taken place in today’s times. Written by veteran lyricist Gulzar, the story of Mirza-Sahiban echoes into the present and plays out through lovers Adil, played by Harshvardhan and Suchi, enacted by the debutant Saiyami Kher. The film is all set to release this weekend.
