The real reason why Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra cast newcomers for ‘Mirzya’

The director of films like ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s latest offering ‘Miryza’ is one of the most anticipated films of the year, and one of the reasons is that it has two newcomers Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher.

Mehra was recently quizzed by a leading Entertainment daily as to what led him to cast two newcomers in the movie. He said, “I feel that somewhere destiny plays a role and the right thing happens if you trust something which is larger than you. It might sound philosophical but on a logical level I trust my instincts a lot. That small voice inside you is actually the loudest but we let it down in the confusion around us. My instincts took me to Gulzar saab (who has written the screenplay and the lyrics). He lives just 30 minutes away from my house but it took me 35 years to work with him. My instincts took me to both Saiyami and Harshvardhan and destiny brought us together. I can give you 101 reasons — I won’t be able to sleep tonight because I will feel I haven’t told you enough reasons.  There is something more — we didn’t just make a film together; we have spent the last three years together.”

Now that’s quite a philosophical reasoning by the maverick filmmaker. His film ‘Miryza’ will be releasing on October 7, 2016 and we cannot wait to see how well the newcomers do justice to this movie.
