"Well, obviously Mirzya didn't do well at the box-office which is fine. It's not a film for everybody," Harshvardhan said.
He added: "Every film has its own destiny. I feel Mirzya is a work of art. It is a beautiful film and it will find its place in course of time."
The son of actor Anil Kapoor talked about Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's ambitious project at the red carpet of Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards on Saturday night.
Apart from Harshvardhan, Mirzyamarked debut of Saiyami Kher, and narrated Mr Mehra's take on the folklore of Mirza-Sahiba.
Harshvardhan feels "the audience is used to seeing newcomers presented in a certain way".
"I didn't do any of the conventional things. In terms of look or the character, I kept a huge beard and played a rustic character. Moreover, the love story is explained through its music so there are a lot of new things for viewers to take," said the 25-year-old actor.
Now, Harshvardhan is focusing on his next project Bhavesh Joshi.
