Bollywood debutant actor Harshwardhan Kapoor, son of Anil Kapoor coming with “Mirzya”, consider Aamir Khan his inspiration, and said "I make it a point to watch all films… there are so many amazing actors and I like certain films of certain actors. Aamir Khan was a very big influence, I think, when my generation was growing up. In 2001 ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ came, then ‘Lagaan’ came, then ‘Rang De Basanti’ came… so those were defining films for us when we were growing up." Also added, “That time actors were doing so many films at a time and he (Aamir) decided to work more in isolation and focus on one thing at a time. I like Aamir for his choices for his determination and I also like Ranbir,”
On asking if any competition with father Anil Kapoor, he said: “All my girlfriends also say the same thing. I think when you will see this film in first 10 minutes you will forget everything about this.” Mirzya, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra opposite debutant Saiyami Kher.
He considered Mirzya, a contemporary script and said,“Its a romantic tragedy and its different from other romantic tragedies… it was very complex. Its very rare to find scripts that are poetic and very romantic. When I was 22 I was reading so many other scripts but I feel this is the most contemporary romantic script ever. So I was blown away with the script. Its romantic, poetic, its complex, it’s musical so its like a dream."
The film will be released on this October.
