Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who had made 'Dilli-6' with harsh's sister Sonam kapoor in the lead said that he never would have made a film like 'Mirzya' for the actress. He explained that harsh and Sonam may be siblings, but they're poles apart in terms of sensibilities. We hear you Mr Mehra! Image by Sachin Gokhale/Firstpost

At one point of time, Rakeysh was asked about the build of his lead actor — and why Harsh was so lean as compared to the norm today for male actors to sport six-packs. The director jokingly replied that his role as an archer required Harsh to be lean; and that the enxt time, he'd make a film that needed the young actor to bulk up so fans could be satisfied.

Another highlight of the evening was when Anil Kapoor complained that he had been asking Gulzar saab to make a film with him for years, and the legend had finally written a film hat would turn out to be Harsh's debut. Image by Sachin Gokhale/Firstpost
