It is time to witness some strong father-son 'konnection' in Shahid Kapoor - Vidya Balan starrer KISMAT KONNECTION. The film is special not just because it marks the return of RAJU BAN GAYA GENTLEMAN director after 5 years but also because it welcomes fresh talent in the form of Haroon Mirza, who is Aziz Mirza's son.

Aziz Mirza's last film was CHALTE CHALTE (2003) that starred Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee. After that he took a long sabbatical, only to make a comeback with the TIPS production KISMAT KONNECTION which is arriving this July.

In the meanwhile Haroon was showing strong inclination towards film making that resulted in the young boy assisting his father during YES BOSS and CHALTE CHALTE. After gaining good exposure behind the camera, he also started writing a script while keeping Shah Rukh Khan in mind as a central protagonist. Though that film didn't materialize, Haroon went on to direct Shah Rukh Khan in advertisements for Airtel and Hyundai Accent.

While his dream of directing Shah Rukh Khan for a big screen extravaganza still remains unfulfilled, Haroon got an opportunity to direct Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan for KISMAT KONNECTION - an offer that he didn't refuse.

With his father's training and constant support helping the cause, Haroon now appears in the credits of KISMAT KONNECTION as the co-director. This makes the film as one of the rare instances when a first time director has been billed as a co-director along with an established film maker.

A few months down the line, there would be one more instance of a first time director coming together with another filmmaker. THE MAN, a Dharmendra production would see APNE writer Neeraj Pathak making his debut as a director. The film sees Pathak co-directing with Sunny Deol who had made his debut as a director with DILLAGI.
