anuj choudhry interview

Anuj Choudhry Interview: Anuj Choudhry is an actor and model from India. I spoke to Anuj upon release of his movie Mirzya where he plays a supporting role. I actually enjoyed his acting more than anyone else in the film. anuj choudhry interview

Mirzya is based on a Punjabi folklore called Mirza Sahibaan. Although many movies, plays and dramas have been made on this folklore but the only version I’ve ever watched is one from 1947, starring our lovely Malika e Tarranum Noor Jehan and Trilok Kapoor. This was Noor Jehan’s last movie before Indo-Pak partition in 1947. We dearly miss her. anuj choudhry interview

Leading roles have been played by Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor and Top Indian model Saiyami Kher. Mirzya has been directed by Rakyesh Om Prakesh Mehra’s. It also stars Art Malik, a British actor of Indian Summers fame and Om Puri who needs no introduction. anuj choudhry interview

Mirzya also incorporates Mythology which sets the film apart from other bollywood films.

A gift, an open play field to play and perform. He is all about love and grace when it comes to his team. His actors definitely get more of both than others.

Harsh and Saiyami both are strong and graceful individuals. Harsh was a pleasure to work with.

I had the opportunity to work with Saiyami more because it was demanded by the script. She is very giving and has tremendous potential as you can clearly see.
