While the world is talking about his son’s debut Mirzya, an adaptation of the Mirza-Sahiban folklore, Anil Kapoor couldn’t control his emotions during the music launch of the film that was held recently. The music launch which was held in Mumbai saw the Kapoor family in attendance with the father-daughter, Anil and Rhea cheering for the youngest member of their family, Harsh’s debut.
During the launch, when Anil Kapoor was invited on stage to speak a few words about his son Harsh, the veteran star was overwhelmed with emotions. Stating that his life has come a full circle, Anil said, “My father came a few decades back to this film industry and he saw success and a few disappointments but that gave him strength. I want to thank my father, my mother and both my brothers. “Further adding that he doesn’t want to make it an event about him, the proud father started revealing tid-bits about his son Harsh. He added, “I wanna say ‘beta ho toh aisa’ par kya karein yeh meri baat hi nahi suntan (I wanna say ‘he is like the perfect son’ but he never listens to me).”
“I know people are apprehensive about star sons but I assure you that you need not be at all. Harsh has done it on his own… he has done this film on his own. He believes that he is different and let me tell you don’t expect anything like me from him. That’s what his strength is. I just wanna say that Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra spotted him, groomed him and the entire team have made him Mirzya today and I can see Mirzya on screen.”
Talking about his and his family’s association to Bollywood, Anil maintained, “My entire family has given blood, sweat to this business, never compromised, no scams never made money but just enough money and has given everything to this show business, film industry. Whatever love, affection you have given me in so many years, I want you all to give it to my son.”
Mirzya also stars Saiyami Kher who is making her Bollywood debut with this film. With lyrics written by Gulzar and music composed by Shankaar-Ehsaan-Loy, the film is slated to release on October 7.
