Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher may be newbies in Bollywood but they have already spent three years with the same project. Their three-year-old labour of love culminates in Mirzya — a film that questions if an eternal tale of love such as Mirza Sahibaan can survive in today’s time.
This Friday (October 7), Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is all set to launch the two fresh faces in a film scripted by Gulzar. The eminent writer has penned a screenplay after a gap of 15 years. In fact, as a film, Mirzya ticks all the boxes — written by Gulzar, the film has been directed by Mehra who has earlier given us memorable films such as Rang De Basanti (2006) and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013).
