‘Mirziya’ not a masala entertainer: Harshvardhan Kapoor

Mumbai, Sep 13 (IANS) Actor Harshvardhan Kapoor, who is debuting with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s “Mirzya”, says this film is not a masala entertainer and he would be surprised if it gets a massive opening at the box office.

“I think that it (the film) is not a masala entertainer. However it’s very hard to gauge what’s commercial and what’s not. I think anything that does well becomes commercial. For instance look at ‘Neerja’,” Harshvardhan told IANS in an interaction here.

“If it takes a massive start at the box office, I will be very surprised…,” he added.

“Mirzya” pairs Harshvardhan with newcomer Saiyami Kher.

The film, penned by Gulzar, is a take on the tragic love story of Mirza-Sahiban.

Harshvardhan says he was approached by Mehra for this film in 2011 but he refused to take it as he was not prepared at that point of time.

“I met Mehra in 2008 on the sets ‘Delhi 6’ and he liked the way I was in terms of my facial characteristics. He really appreciated my sensibility and my opinions and the kinds of films that I like,” said the 25-year-old.

The film is scheduled to release on October 7.
