Sonam Kapoor's brother Harshvardhan Kapoor is set to make his debut in the film industry with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's "Mirziya" this year. Though he has not made a name in Bollywood yet, he still shares something common with a Bollywood superstar.

There is a common thing between Harshvardhan and Salman Khan: and it is their love for horses. Salman already owns a white horse at his Panvel farmhouse in Mumbai, while Harshvardhan is in a process to buy one. 

The idea to buy a horse came to Harshvardhan when he had his first horse riding experience while prepping for "Mirzya." He realised that he shares a special connection with the animal after he started spending a lot of time with horses.

"Harsh developed the fondness of horse riding while the extensive prep that he went through during 'Mirzya.' This particular skill has stayed with him and he is very keen on practising it for life time. He has been talking to several people who are experts in this case and is taking enough time before he finally gets one," a spokesperson said in a statement.

On the other hand, fans must have seen Salman's photos of horse-riding at his farmhouse on social media. Apart from the "Sultan" actor, Randeep Hooda is also one of those few Bollywood celebs who own horses. Randeep has six horses and happens to be an ace polo player.

Now, debutant Harshvardhan will also add his name to the list. Currently, Anil Kapoor's son is shooting for "Mirziya," opposite another debutant Saiyami Kher. The film is the modern version of Mirza-Sahiba's epic love story, and is slated to hit theatres soon.
