Harshvardhan Kapoor is not bogged down with his debut film Mirzya failing to make a mark at the box-office. The actor accepts the failure and says that the movie is not for everybody.

“Well, obviously ‘Mirzya’ didn’t do well at the box-office which is fine. It’s not a film for everybody,” Harshvardhan said.

He added: “Every film has its own destiny. I feel ‘Mirzya’ is a work of art. It is a beautiful film and it will find its place in course of time.”

The son of actor Anil Kapoor talked about the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ambitious project. Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra launched two promising new faces in his recently-released period spectacle Mirzya. Unfortunately for the debutante star kids, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, the film bombed. For the youngsters, the beginning may be tentative but not all is lost.

Apart from Harshvardhan, “Mirzya” marked debut of Saiyami Kher, and narrated Mehra’s take on the folklore of Mirza-Sahiba.

Harshvardhan feels “the audience is used to seeing newcomers presented in a certain way”.

“I didn’t do any of the conventional things. In terms of look or the character, I kept a huge beard and played a rustic character. Moreover, the love story is explained through its music so there is a lot of new things for viewers to take,” said the 25-year-old.

In the run up to Mirzya, you may have noticed that the media had mostly sidelined the film’s heroine Saiyami Kher while Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan, with designer stubble and eclectic fashion sense firmly in place, was dubbed a star even before he could qualify for the title.

Now, Harshvardhan is focusing on his next project “Bhavesh Joshi”.
