There were talks that Anil Kapoor's 21 year old son Harshvardhan been interested in screenplay-writing and cinematography but it seems that something has changed Harshvardhan's decision on the sets of Anurag Basu's much awaited 'Bombay Velvet'.

Anil's son is proceeding towards acting after he completes assisting Basu on the future project. Harshvardhan will be seen as the lead in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's next release 'Mirza Sahiba'. Mehra expressed that his film needed a fresh face as well as, Harshvardhan has an fierce look of an intense lover combined with soft spoken eyes which perfectly matched his title character Mirza.

Mehra's draft for the film was ready even before 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' went on floors. The film is supposed to be a unique love tragedy based on the folklore. The project is scheduled to be shot in 2014 as the hunt for Sahiba is still on.
