I’m blown away by Alia Bhatt’s work: Saiyami Kher

Ac­tress Saiyami Kher, who is mak­ing her Bollywood de­but with Rakeysh Om­prakash Mehra’s Mirzya, says she finds it mind-blow­ing to see Alia Bhatt’s range as an ac­tor. “There is so much to learn from any gen­er­a­tion (of ac­tors). Cur­rently, I am com­pletely blown away by Alia Bhatt’s work. She is com­pletely on another level al­to­gether,” Saiyami told IANS. “The kind of films she does is mind­blow­ing. I watched Udta Pun­jab and she is phe­nom­e­nal,” she added. In her de­but film Mirzya”, Saiyami Kher has been paired with another new­comer Harsh­vard­han Kapoor, son of Anil Kapoor. Asked if she hopes to make in­roads into in­ter­na­tional cin­ema some­day, Saiyami Kher said: “I would love to be­cause I don’t see lan­guage as a barrier in act­ing. If some­thing comes along, it would be won­der­ful. I would love to do a Ja­panese film some day.” Saiyami Kher has pre­vi­ously worked in Rey, which is a 2015 Tel­ugu ac­tion mu­si­cal film pro­duced and di­rected by YVS Chowdary on his Bom­mar­illu Films ban­ner. With the re­lease of Mirzya she will be mak­ing her recog­ni­tion in Bollywood in­dus­try as well. The film Mirzya will be based on the fa­mous folk­lore that es­says the love story of Mirzya and Sahiba. Saiyami Kher will be play­ing the role of Sahiba. From the trailer of Mirzya it seems it tells a tale en­twined in two pe­ri­ods. While one re­cites the pop­u­lar folk­lore the story based on the other pe­riod will be given a con­tem­po­rary feel of the tale.

The film is set to re­lease on Oc­to­ber 7, 2017.
