Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya got thumbs up at London Film Festival


Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya got a thumbs up from the gathering of people at the 60th BFI London Film Festival.

Ajay Devgn is planning to launch a book series inspired by Shivaay

The film marks the Bollywood debut of Anil Kapoor's child Harshvardhan and performing artist Saiyami Kher. Mirzya is enlivened by the account of the star-crossed mates Mirza-Sahiban, a well known old stories from Punjab.

Harshvardhan's sister Sonam Kapoor, wearing Ralp and Russo couture, went along with her family and Saiyami at celebrity lane.

A dream come true for me as I walked the @bfi red carpet with my family… @anilskapoor, @sonamkapoor & @saiyami

The film set in Rajasthan has been shot by cinematographer Pawel Dyllus.

The story spins around Munish and Suchitra, who are associates since youth, however an untoward episode isolates them. A long time later, their ways cross. Be that as it may, this time around Suchitra is getting hitched.

The musical, which has a sweet score by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy with extra tracks by Daler Mehndi, unfurls lazily in a Broadway-style group.

Mixing the present-day track with a period old stories, Mr Mehra and Gulzar (credited with screenplay and verses) give viewers a drawing in and extravagant wide screen experience.

After the debut, Rohit Khattar, Chairman, Cinestaan Film Company, one of the makers of the film facilitated a Celebration Get-together at Chor Bizarre, which was gone to by performing artist Anil, Sonam, Harshvardhan, Saiyam and a large group of dignitaries.

So proud to present #Mirzya to the world at the @BFI…
