Saiyami will share screen space with Harshvardhan Kapoor, son of actor Anil Kapoor
aiyami Kher, who started her career with a Telugu film Rey, is making her Bollywood debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirziya. She says that it can’t get any better than this.
“It couldn’t get any better for me. I was chosen for Mirzya after six months of auditioning. Then, when I finally got selected, Rakeysh Sir took me to Delhi to be trained by a theatre director Dilip Shankar.
“I evolved as a person and as an actor over the last two years when I worked on this film,” sighs Saiyami, as she now contemplates that inevitable break from her mentor’s vigilant nurturing.
Saiyami will share screen space with Harshvardhan Kapoor, son of actor Anil Kapoor, who is also making his Bollywood debut with the film.
“My co-star Harshvardhan Kapoor has already moved on. He is doing a second film. I am still emotionally attached to Mirzya. I know everyone will disperse soon. But how do I deal with it? It’s like end of schooling. You know you have to move on in life. But the break is very painful,” she added.
She looks at Mehra as a guardian beyond her home. “He is family now. He has taught me so much and do you know, he’s a fabulous cook,” she said.
Saiyami breaks into peals of laughter as she describes her co-star’s caution about his diet.
“I am a complete foodie. Harshvardhan measures every morsel he eats. So I’d be devouring my mutton curry while he would be nibbling on his 200 grams of broccoli,” she said
But the two of them had an amazing time together. “Our characters function in two time zones and we shot the two stories like two different films.
“For one of the two characters I had to get a muscular physique and look like an Amazonian warrior,” she said. IANS
