Harshvardhan is the son of actor Anil Kapoor. Mirzya also stars Saiyami Kher, who is also making her debut in Bollywood with the film. Mirzya is based on the Punjabi folktale of Mirza Sahiban and oscillates between the present time and the pages of folktales.
Mirzya successfully left a mark on Bollywood veterans Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

Harshvardhan's sister, actress Sonam Kapoor is convinced about the impact Mirzya will have on everyone:
Bollywood stars like Arjun Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, Neha Dhupia, Athiya Shetty and others also showered Harshvardhan, Saiyami and Mirzya with much love:
What an enthralling experience #Mirzya is! Effervescent performances, vibrant music & folklore entwined into an exceptional narrative. Wow!? Meghna Gulzar (@meghnagulzar) October 1, 2016
Meanwhile, this is what father Anil had to tell Harshvardhan's after watching Mirzya: "I don't know who to compare you with since your style and approach is very original."
Mirzya is set to release on October 7 and is much-awaited following the release of its trailers filled with emotionally-loaded scenes and stunning visuals. The director zeroed in locations like the unexplored terrains of Ladakh and Rajasthan for Mirzya.
