‘Mirzya’ Release Date Postponed

Acclaimed director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has decided to postpone his ambitious film ‘Mirzya’ from May 13 to October 7, 2016. The reason for the delay is to get everything right.

“The released teaser is the folklore bit, the perceived images in my head the first time I heard the story. I want the audience to share this larger than life experience. It has to be just right. We have taken the seed of this idea and sowed it in a story set in 2016, not even 2015” Mehra said in a statement that was released to the media.

The statement also added “Inspired by the folk tale of ‘The legend of Mirza-Sahiban’, the film is pegged to be an epic action-romance that plays out in contemporary times. It will have heightened drama and action-packed sequences in the visually rich terrain of Rajasthan, juxtaposed with flashes of the fantastical universe of the folklore set in the bleakness of Ladakh, read a statement from the makers.”

‘Mirzya’ marks the acting debut of Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor. The film also stars Saiyami Kher and Anuj Chaudhary.

The story of the film has been written by Oscar winning lyricist Gulzar, the music has been composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.




  • Why this film ‘Mirza’ ‘Mirziya’ Mirzya’ whatever it is – is getting so much headlines???

    Becoz its obvious it is of a star-kid… It can be another wannabe classy mess …

    They were afraid of clashing with ‘Azhar’… No mention of this in @indicine article..

    1) shitty Mirziya release date…
    2) shitty bikini scene of shraadha of flop dated Baaghi remake..
    3) a waste arjun kapoor Ki n Ka related article..
    4) useless mandatory sultan n Fan related Khan-articles..

  • I think harsh kapoor will be more pathetic n worse than arjunK ….!!…

    But arjunK ‘s inability to act is altogether at a different level….!..

    Mirziya will be wrap under 20cr lyftym due to dull October period….!… Ki n Ka n Miziya will compete with each other for 20cr lyftym disaster tag….!

  • Good decision..if the content is appreciated then it can take the benefit of dussehra holidays in the weekdays..this pre-diwali period is normally conceived as a poor release period for big films but if the appreciation is there then the film can have a very strong run for 3 weeks till big Diwali releases hit the screens..I have expectations from Mirzya so hope for the best

  • The movie is in news because of director and writer and whole production team, not the lead actor!!!
    He was barely mentioned once in this article so you guyz need to calm down
