Talking Talkies – Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra
From Rang De Basanti to Delhi – 6 and more recently Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has given films that have left an indelible mark on Hindi cinema. The National award-winning filmmaker is also part of the newly-appointed revamp panel of the CBFC.
Currently Mehra is working on his next titled Mirziya. Mirziya is set to be a contemporary take on the tragic romance of Mirza and Sahiba. The director will also launch two new faces – Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher – in his highly awaited film.
We caught up with the filmmaker and couldn’t resist asking him about the making of Mirziya, his reunion with the legendary Gulzar Saab who has penned Mirziya, his experience of shooting his films in India, working with debutants and more.
