The upcoming movie ‘Mirzya’ is being heavily promoted these days and its stars are out to drum up even more publicity for the film. The movie features two new faces of Bollywood though perhaps both actors cannot be called new to the industry. The male lead is played by Harshvardhan Kapoor, who is the son of Anil Kapoor and brother of Sonam Kapoor.
“That’s bound to be. That’s natural. After all, he is the son of one of India’s great actors. Had I been a media person, I would have also been more interested in knowing about Harshvardhan because he is the son of a big star! I would have wanted to know about his childhood. In fact, I am also as excited as everyone else about Anil Kapoor’s son being launched,” she explained.
Her first movie, the Telugu film ‘Rey’, released last year and Kher has been part of brand campaigns for Levis, Pantaloons, Lóreal, etc as well as being part of the Kingfisher calendar. However, the 24-year-old Kher says that acting was never part of the plan for her and that her parents tried to keep her away from the movie industry. Kher also stated that she finds this sudden fame “extremely overwhelming”.
When asked about her own film background, she said, “Shabana masi sent me a very sweet message before we started shooting. She said, ‘You are in very good hands. Have fun and it will show on screen. ’ Tanvi bua also said, ‘I’m there for you, whenever you need me.’ There were scenes for which I turned to her for suggestions. So, I feel lucky.”
‘Mirzya’, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, will hit theaters on 7 October.
