Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher debuted in the movie Mirzya and the film did not really fare well at the box office. People found the movie too complex; hence, it could not succeed at the box office. It looks like Harshvardhan has done some soul searching all by himself and has come to a conclusion as to why his debut movie failed.
He said, "To be honest, I wasn't expecting Mirzya to set the box office on fire. Obviously, it would have been nicer had it opened with slightly better numbers. It wasn't a commercial film and it's safe to say that now. Actually, you don't know what is mainstream and what is not until it's really put out there. I'm also in a way discovering the sensibilities of the audience as I go along."
He further commented, "I'm not saying Mirzya was a perfect film. In fact, I'm the first one to admit that it was a flawed film. But most films are flawed. It was visually enchanting and musically stunning, though. And as newcomers, we didn't do anything glamourous or starry in it. I had dirt all over and sported a full grown beard."
"Rajasthani stable boys and warriors are like that. So, the learning is that you go from story to story. I understand people universally couldn't connect much with the film. Some people liked it and they did let me know. My next with Vikramaditya Motwane is a lot more accessible in that sense."
