Saiyami Kher made her debut in ‘Mirzya’ last year, opposite Harshvardhan Kapoor. However, she hasn’t yet signed her next movie and she’s recently spoken about why.
“I’m happy for Harsh, and for the kind of films he will be next seen in. He’s a dear friend and we recently met at an awards show. He has been lucky that good scripts are coming his way. He is doing Bhavesh Joshi, which will be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, and both Harsh and I are a fan of his work. Unfortunately, the kind of stuff that came my way wasn’t good enough. I can’t do a film I don’t feel excited about. In fact, I was supposed to do a Tamil film with Mani Ratnam, but the project did not take off,” said Kher, as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Kher was quizzed about whether she thinks Kapoor has been given more offers due to him hailing from a film family. She replied, “No doubt it helps being Anil Kapoor’s son but it has been proved time and again that whoever’s son or daughter you are, the audience decides your fate. One can only survive with his or her talent and craft. There has been so much written about Ishaan [Khatter] being the next star kid, etc. But only when you see the mind blowing work this boy has done in Beyond the Clouds, you understand what is more important and what is not”.
Kher has also recently explained that she would like to do a sports biopic if something she was excited about came her way.
