Next Friday's release 'Mithya' is inspired from Indian mythology, says its director Rajat Kapoor .

A mythological film may not have any takers but what about a film inspired from a discussion between two mythological characters? Well, actor-director Rajat Kapoor's next directorial venture Mithya has a similar tale to tell.




"Once I read somewhere about a conversation between Lord Vishnu and Narad where after much persuasion Vishnu explains Narad the meaning of Maya. It was from there that I got the inspiration for the script of the film," Rajat is quoted by a news agency.

"It is about finding one's identity, one's inner self," says the two-time National Award winning director.

Rajat says he wanted to make the film nine years back with Naseeruddin Shah as the lead.

"This script has been with me since 1999. I wanted Naseeruddin Shah to play the lead then but I couldn't arrange enough money to produce the film. Now Ranvir Shorey is playing the protagonist and Naseerji is playing another important character," he says.

Rajat, who introduced the audience to a different form of comedy with films like Raghu Romeo and "Mixed Doubles", says he is a humourous person.

"There is humour in me which gets reflected in my films but I don't believe in slapstick comedy," he says.
