The original story of Mirzya is about a woman, who sacrificed her love to avoid bloodshed but why Sahiban betrayed Mirzya still remains one of folklore's unanswered questions. And director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is trying to answer the same with the movie. Whether he is successful in doing so or not is something only the audience will be able to decide.
Talking about the movie, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra told a leading daily, ''Mirzya is inspired by the famous folklore of Mirza Sahiba. It has its likeness in great love stories and great romantic tragedies like Romeo Juliet, Heer Ranjha and Laila Majnu. In my film, we play out the folklore which forms one part of the story and then the folklore, in a way, kind of resonates and echoes and lands in today's time. And mostly a good 70% of it plays out in contemporary Rajasthan (in 2016) with contemporary actors.''
He added, ''I first saw the play during my college days in Delhi University. What happens in the story is when the time comes Sahiba she breaks Mirza's arrows. So he is unable to defend himself and in the process, he is killed. Then the director would come on stage at the end of the play and ask the question why did Sahiba break the arrows? That question kind of stayed with me for the longest time.''
