“Though love is quite illogical. We try to find reason for it. And fail. Love doesn't mean trying to figure out all the equations formulas and theorems of love. As for what love means to me, I will discover that as I direct the film. I know it would be one of the most beautiful experiences of my life,” he said.
Mehra, who will be weaving the journey of love of Mirza and Sahiba in a very mature manner, does not plan to make it a common love tale.
“My film is not a boy-girl thing. It's about soul mates. I won't try to figure it out. I'll just experience it, it’s a tragic love story, isn't a typical Bollywood film,” he said.
“It's very interesting. When I embarked on this journey, I wasn't the least concerned about how many times the story had been done. This was just something I needed to do. It's a tragic love story. But the way it plays out is so unique. See, usually classic love stories are based on the premise of societal opposition. In "Mirza Sahibaan", the dynamics and complexities of the love relationship are defined by the couple itself. That's what made this love story so contemporary for me,” he added.
Mehra will be introducing debutant Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher in ‘Mirza Sahibaan’.
