We guess Harshvardhan Kapoor is more than happy and fortunate to be a part of ‘Mirzya’, a big project directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s. The trailers and the music of the movie has taken audience by storm. Looks like a dream debut for any actor isn’t it?
But do you know how much money did he charge for ‘Mirzya’? Zero! yes, you heard that right. Harshvardhan Kapoor did Mirzya for free!
“He felt it wasn’t right to accept any remuneration for the film out of gratitude to the makers, who invested a huge amount of time and money in his prep. He is grateful that he is part of the experience.” says an insider.
Confirming the news, Harshvardhan told media that the makers ensured his personal trainer was paid and that his horse riding sessions were funded, which didn’t come cheap. “That was my fee for the film. It’s such an honour to be part of this project that the thought [of taking a fee] didn’t cross my mind. The investment Mehra and his production house have made leaves me in debt, which I must now repay [through box office collections],” he said.
And this is how it will stand in future too. “It doesn’t matter if I am going through a high or low in my career, I won’t asked for a fee for a Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film.” Harshvardhan, however, refused to clarify if he was paid a token amount or will enjoy a share in the returns.
