Harshvardhan Kapoor is making his Bollywood debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya. But you will be shocked to read how he behaved with media during a recent promotional event. According to a report in Spotboye, ''The word is out in the media that Anil Kapoor's youngest child needs to learn some manners, and that too, fast.''
''Seems, the 25-year-old left some senior journos aghast during a recent media interaction organised by Mirzya director. Nobody minded when the Kapoor laadla reached half-an-hour late for the interview. But what followed left everyone speechless. Harshvardhan sat on a chair facing the media, and then, with oodles of attitude, placed his legs on the table in front. In short, the journalists -- some of them very senior -- had a clearer view of the newcomer's shoes than his face.''
Harshvardhan Kapoor is making his big Bollywood debut with Mirzya. In a recent interview to Indian Express, he revealed why he chose Mirzya as his first film.
He said, ''I see myself in both warrior Mirzya and stable boy Adil. I can fit into the awe-inspiring physical landscape of Mirzya's world and bring out his fierceness and flamboyance.''
Harshvardhan On His Character In The Movie
He added, ''I also relate to Adil, who, like me, spends a lot of time in isolation. Also, like me, he doesn't say much but is very expressive with his eyes. He seems very intense on the outside, but is actually quite vulnerable on the inside.''
Hrashvardhan Talks About Rakeysh
''I hope Mirzya works, so that Rakeysh and I can do an even bigger film together. Mirzya is a rebirth for him; he has told the story in such a new way,'' he said.
He added, ''As a director, Rakeysh believes so much in your ability and uniqueness. He had great faith in my physical and facial features, and what he thinks is a very unique presence on screen.''
Emotionally Stressful Experience
''Once he trusts you as an artiste, and believes you're adequately prepared, he leaves it to you completely to just go out and express yourself. It's very emotionally stressful for me that I don't know how I'm going to top this experience,'' Harshvardhan said.
Preparing for the Movie
''For 18 months, I practised horse riding and archery. At the end of my training, my riding was better than those who had been riding for a decade, '' he told the daily.
Mirzya Release Date
Mirzya is releasing on October 7, it is an epic love story directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and written by Gulzar.
''Not willing to put up with such outright disrespect, a scribe asked Harshvardhan to sit properly. He obeyed, but the point is, who in the world behaves like that unless they are in their own drawing room? Kapoor Jr was rude to press photographers, too. Seems, he refuses to pose for pictures and even if someone clicks him, makes it a point to check all the snaps,'' the report stated.
Everyone is shocked to see such behaviour of Harshvardhan Kapoor. He is the son of Anil Kapoor and the brother of Sonam Kapoor and both these celebrities have always respected the media and their job.
He is not even a film old and carries so much of attitude. God knows what will happen if his film becomes a superhit.
