Anil Kapoor's son Harshvardhan Kapoor, who is making his Bollywood debut with Mirzya, said that Aamir Khan had a very big influence on him.
He told a leading news agency in an interview, "I make it a point to watch all films... there are so many amazing actors and I like certain films of certain actors. Aamir Khan was a very big influence, I think, when my generation was growing up. In 2001 Dil Chahta Hai came, then Lagaan came, then Rang De Basanti came... so those were defining films for us when we were growing up.''
Harshvardhan Kapoor further added, "That time actors were doing
so many films at a time and he (Aamir) decided to work more in
isolation and focus on one thing at a time. I like Aamir for his
choices for his determination and I also like Ranbir.''

Talking about his debut film, he said, "It's a romantic tragedy and its different from other romantic tragedies... it was very complex. Its very rare to find scripts that are poetic and very romantic. When I was 22 I was reading so many other scripts but I feel this is the most contemporary romantic script ever. So I was blown away with the script. Its romantic, poetic, its complex, it's musical so its like a dream."
Mirzya will hit the screens on October 7.
