'Mirzya' at the 60th BFI London Film Festival

We talked Bollywood and folktales with the talent behind the Indian romantic epic Mirzya at its premiere at the 60th BFI London Film Festival.

Watch the video above, where the stars of Mirzya discuss Indian filmmaking on the red carpet - including Harshvardhan Kapoor, his father Anil Kapoor, Saiyami Kher, Anuj Choudhry, and British actor Art Malik - and why younger audiences are falling in love with Bollywood film, as well as the importance of Mirzya premiering at LFF.

In the video below, the incredible talent behind the new Indian drama - including director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, and actors Harshvardhan Kapoor, and Saiyami Kher - talk about creating a new form of cinema that's more than traditional Bollywood, and how the soundtrack brings the Punjabi folklore of Mirza Sahiban to a modern audience.
