Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has disclosed that he has now renamed his movie Mirza Sahibaan as Mirziya.
"The film is now going to be called Mirziya. Just like I made Bhaag Milkha Bhaag inspired by the life of Milkha Singh, Mirziya is only inspired by the folklore," Mehra told IANS exclusively.
He is here in Jammu and Kashmir as the patron of the Ladakh International Film Festival.
The movie helmed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra stars newcomers Harshvardhan Kapoor, son of veteran actor Anil Kapoor, and Saiyami Kher, niece of Tanvi Azmi.
To be shot in Rajasthan and Ladakh, the tragic love story is a modern take on the folklore.
