Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who is launching Anil Kapoor's son Harshvardhan with "Mirza Sahiban", says he chose the youngster as he fits the bill of an intensive lover and added that he is undergoing training right now.
"Harshvardhan is training for the film. There's one year of preparation before he comes in front of the camera," Mehra told IANS.
The movie is a musical penned by Gulzar, and it is based on a popular folklore. Leading lady for the film is yet to be locked.
Ask how Harshvardhan fits the role, Mehra said: "He has the intensity of a lover and he has the seriousness to play the role. He is a lovely performer."
