Actress Saiyami Kher says she found that Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan to be a simple guy without any film air about him despite his dad’s superstar status;
She has been paired with him in the upcoming film “Mirzya”.
“I had pre-conceived notions that being Anil Kapoor’s son, Harsh would be filmy. But he is completely different. He is normal and chilled out person. We got along well. He is passionate about his work. He has worked too hard for this film,” Saiyami said.
Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra’s directorial venture “Mirzya” introduces Harshvardhan and Saiyami, the granddaughter of actress Usha Kiran and niece of Tanvi Azmi and Shabana Azmi.
She made her acting debut with Telugu film “Rey”, but “Mirzya” marks her entry into Bollywood.
“I was very happy because I have been a fan of Anil Kapoor. I went crazy seeing him (Anil Kapoor) in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’… he was incredible. I was excited as Anil Kapoor’s son was getting launched and even I am there in that film. It’s an exciting thing,” she said.
The film is a love story. The model-turned-actress says both Anil Kapoor and his daughter Sonam had come on the sets of “Mirzya”.
“When Anil sir came on the sets while we were shooting (for ‘Mirzya’) in Rajasthan, the energy is incredible. He (Anil Kapoor) is still passionate about his work. This is something (referring to his energy and passion) we all youngsters must learn from him,” she said.
“Sonam is an easy person to get along, she has no hang ups, she is sweet. They all, Sonam, Rhea (Harshvardhan’s sisters) and Harsh are different,” she said. For this romantic-drama, Harshvardhan and Saiyami had to learn horse-riding. – CINEWS
