Ready to make a mark

Actress Sonam Kapoor feels her brother Harshvardhan, who will soon be making his acting debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's ‘Mirziyan’, will make a mark for himself in the industry due to his ‘idealistic’ way of working. The film will also be a Bollywood debut for actress Saiyami Kher, the granddaughter of yesteryear's leading actress Usha Kiran and niece of Tanvi Azmi.

“The kind of hard work Harsh puts in is incredible.We all work hard, but he is very idealistic. He is intelligent and sharp. He will go a long way,” says Sonam. “It is not like he will be the superstar, and filling in the cinema halls. But he will be a force to reckon with when it comes to talent and choice of films,” she adds.

‘Mirziya’ is inspired by the love tale of Sahiban and Mirza, and is described as its contemporary adapta­tion. The screenplay of the film is written by Gulzar.

The ‘Neerja’ actress, who is known for speaking her mind, said that everyone in her family have been given the freedom to evolve and have their own opinion. “He (Harsh) will do different things (in films). We all have been brought up with a strong sense of individuality. We have been given space and freedom to evolve,” she says. The 30-year-old actress, who is basking in the success of her latest release ‘Neerja’, says she has taken her career decisions by herself and never involved her family, including father Anil Kapoor in any of the matters.

“I don't listen to him (Anil Kapoor). I don't listen to anybody. I take his advice, but it is up to me whether to take it or not. I would rather not have them involved in my professional life as I think it is not fair,” she says. Anil Kapoor had once candidly mentioned that with three actors (he, Sonam and Harshvardhan) in their home, there is in-house competition. “There is no competition. I think it is about competition of getting my mom's attention,” she jokes.
