Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya Trailer

Bollywood family relations are way more complicated than some of the movies they come up with.

Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra apparently spent months and months auditioning people to find his pair lead, and after all things were done, he announced that Harshvardhan (son of Anil Kapoor and brother of Sonam) and Saiyami Kher (niece of Tanvi and Shabana Azmi, so somehow related to Tabu according to Wiki family clans xD) were his picks. A lot of people online were pissed off because -yet again- a great debut project went to star kids [1][2][3].

I’m even rolling my eyes whenever I read articles about whose sons and daughters are in their primed ages for debuting, and whose babies will dominate the industry in 15 years or more.

But forget about the actors picks; the one thing that matters is that Mirzya is Gulzar-saab’s first script-story since the 90s, when he wrote and directed Maachis (1996) and Hu Tu Tu (1999). It’s based on the Punjab tragic romance Mirza Sahiban, and its treatment seems to span different lifetimes. The music will be in charge of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, though unsure if Gulzar will also be in charge of the lyrics.

The last minute of the trailer looks amazing~

Mirzya is schedule to open in India and other desi-friendly cities on October 7th.
