New Delhi: We are yet to meet Harshvardhan Kapoor as folklore hero Mirza Sahiban in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya but notable Bollywood personalities have been enjoying special screenings of the film for a while now. On Twitter, reviews and praises are galore both for Harshvardhan and his Bollywood debut Mirzya.

Harshvardhan is the son of actor Anil Kapoor. Mirzya also stars Saiyami Kher, who is also making her debut in Bollywood with the film. Mirzya is based on the Punjabi folktale of Mirza Sahiban and oscillates between the present time and the pages of folktales.

Meanwhile, this is what father Anil had to tell Harshvardhan's after watching Mirzya: "I don't know who to compare you with since your style and approach is very original."

Mirzya is set to release on October 7 and is much-awaited following the release of its trailers filled with emotionally-loaded scenes and stunning visuals. The director zeroed in locations like the unexplored terrains of Ladakh and Rajasthan for Mirzya.

The movie has also been a trending topic owing to its songs, which have lyrics by Gulzar and are composed by Shankar-Ehasaan-Loy. Mirzya also marks Gulzar's return to screenwriting after 17 years.
