Saiyami Kher grand-daughter of the legendary actress of yesteryears, Usha Kiran and niece of Tanvi Azmi has bagged the coveted role of Sahibaan in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirza Sahibaan. The male lead will be essayed by Harshwardhan, son of Anil Kapoor.
Saiyami– Harsh will be Bollywood’s newest lead pair to watch out for. It reportedly took the makers a long time to zero in on the right cast, especially the female lead.
Said Mehra, speaking about how they came to finalise Saiyami Kher, “We’ve selected Saiyami Kher for her ability to project the delicacy, strength, turmoil and resolve of the character. Just like Harshvardhan Kapoor, it didn’t matter where Saiyami Kher came from. She had to prove herself capable of carrying off the character.”
Mirza Sahibaan is an epic love story, which will now be the grand debut of two young filmy kids.
Added Mehra, “We searched for our Sahibaan for months. We finally shortlisted three girls, all strong possibilities as being the final choice. We put all three under rigorous training. That Saiyami Kher finally got the role was a matter of just a slight edge.”
