Mirzya’s failure doesn’t matter as people liked our work, says Saiyami Kher

Actor Saiyami Kher, whose debut film Mirzya failed to work at the box office, says what matters the most to her is that people liked her work in the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial.

Along with Saiyami, actor-producer Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan made his debut in the film, which was a take on the tragic love story and folklore of Mirza-Sahiban.

Saiyami told IANS, “We had put our hard work in the film for two years and the reason I took the project was because I liked the script and not because I had an expectation that it will enter the Rs 100-crore club. What matters to me is that people liked our work.”

“People still ask me if I will be seen sharing screen space with Harshvardhan again, which is an accomplishment.”

Talking about her future projects, the actress who recently attended the Grazia Beauty Weekend here, said, “There are three to four projects. If things fall into place, I will talk about them soon.”

Asked her about dream directors she wants to work with, she said: “My list is long as I admire the work of so many directors. Be it Sriram Raghavan ji or Zoya Akhtar, I want to work with all, and I hope to live this dream soon.”

In the run up to Mirzya, many thought Saiyami Kher had been sidelined while Harshvardhan, with designer stubble and eclectic fashion sense firmly in place. While he was dubbed a star even before he could qualify for the title, the film’s failure was quite a setback for all.
