It is an emotional moment for any father to see his son take the first step towards his career and so was the situation with actor Anil Kapoor today, who was present at the music launch of his son Harshvardhan Kapoor‘s debut film ‘Mirzya’. While talking at the event, the actor became teary eyed.
Anil alongwith his daughters Sonam Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor, brother Boney Kapoor with his actress wife Sridevi, were all present at the function to support Hardhvardhan. “Life has come full circle today. My father came here to the industry a few decades back. He saw success, disappointments, but that gave me and my brothers strength. I want to thank my father, mother, my brothers,” Anil said at the launch, with tears in eyes. “It is a very joyous moment for me today. My son Harshvardhan is here. Beta ho toh aisa ho (A son should be like him). But I want to say, he doesn’t listen to me at all,” Anil said jokingly.
Anil also revealed how Harshvardhan is different from him and that is what his strength is. “I know people are apprehensive about star sons. But I can assure you, whatever he has done today, he has done it on his own. He got the film on his own. Absolutely. He believes he is different. Don’t expect anything from him that we did. That’s his strength. Rakeysh spotted him, groomed him and the entire team has made him Mirzya today and I can see Mirzya on screen today. All of you here, media, my colleagues, have given me love and support. So, whatever love and affection you have given me for so many years, please give it to my son,” Anil said.
Also starring Saiyami Kher, ‘Mirzya’ releases on October 7 and is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
