A crisp sunny day in London saw the European premier of Mirzya, showing as part of the 60th BFI London Film Festival. The stars, director, and producers of the film graced the red carpet at the cinema built in Embankment Park especially for the film festival.
The crowds gathered, most of them with a ticket in hand for the evening’s premier showing, all of them excited to meet both the new and old talent that Mirzya boasts. The movie introduces a trio of new actors and actresses, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Saiyami Kher, and Anuj Choudhry, who are being touted as heralding a new age in Indian cinema.
It was Harsh Kapoor and Saiyami Kher who dazzled the admirers, looking chic and appearing at ease despite this being their first feature film. Saiyami was particularly comfortable, posing for photos and even joining in with some of the fans and their selfies.
Harsh’s father, Anil Kapoor, and sister, Sonam Kapoor, joined the movie’s leads on the red carpet to the delight of all the gathered onlookers and their constantly snapping cameras. Mirzya’s director Rakeysh Omprakesh Mehra also accompanied the group looking unphased by all the attention.
The film also has a seasoned ensemble of internationally-renowned veterans, comprising of Art Malik, Om Puri, and K. K. Rana. BollySpice caught up with Art Malik on the red carpet and asked him about how the three new stars had found making Mirzya. He began by praising their talent and particularly the hard work ethic they showed whilst making the movie
In fact, when it came to filming he was more worried about his own dialogue, although he thanked the hard work of his vocal coach to help him master his lines. Art was also keen to point out the potential worldwide appeal of the film and if the excitement shown at the red carpet in London is anything to go by then there’s certainly plenty of appeal on show.
Mirzya was released worldwide on October 7th.
