Out of all the love stories and folklores in the world, Mirzya-Sahiban seemed to have intrigued director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra the most. During an exclusive chat with, the director, had said that the story behind why Sahiban sacrificed her soulmate Mirzya, had obsessed him for quite a long time.

“I found the story line very interesting with a very strong female protagonist. What happens in the story is, when the time comes, Sahiba, she breaks Mirzya’s arrows. So he is unable to defend himself and in the process, is killed. Then the director would come on stage at the end of the play and ask the question why did Sahiba break the arrows? That question kind of stayed with me for the longest time. It’s almost been 35 years since I have been out of college. So somethings stay in your subconscious… stories that you have heard and you always want to find their meaning, you want to dwell on them to re tell them.. so I went to Gulzar bhai and I asked him, Gulzar bhai Sahiba ne teer kyun todein the? ( Gulzar bhai why did Sahiba break the arrows?) So he said bachu woh toh tum Sahiba se jakey puncho ( kid, why don’t you go and ask Sahiba about it? ) I said Guzar bhai Sahiba toh mil nahi rahi hain..bahut dhoondh raha hun main kab se, aap hi bata dijiye. (Gulzar bhai, I can’t find Sahiba, I am searching for her for a long time…why don’t you tell me.) He had a twinkle in his eyes and he understood the journey I wanted to go down, what I was actually asking him is let’s go and discover this piece called love. Why is falling in love so illogical, so irrational it doesn’t have any reason to it? looking at Sahiba’s act why do we hurt people the most whom we love the most. That’s the journey I went into.. trying to find out why did Sahiba break the arrows,” Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra said during the exclusive chat.

“In my film, we play out the folklore, as such, so there’s one part of the story and then the folklore in a way kind of resonates and echoes and lands on today’s time… you know the essence of it. And mostly it plays out, I would say like a good 70% of it plays out now in contemporary Rajasthan ( in 2016) with contemporary actors,” said the Rang De Basanti director.

Mirzya is set to release on October 7.
