Zoya Akhtar

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE -

Farhan’s sis­ter and Javed Akhtar’s daugh­ter — it was but nat­u­ral for Zoya to fol­low in her brother’s foot­steps and foray into film di­rec­tion. Her de­but film Luck By Chance starred Farhan in the lead role and was about the jour­ney of an ac­tor in tin­sel town. The film boasted of an en­sem­ble cast and had all the Bolly A- lis­ters from Aamir Khan to Hrithik Roshan mak­ing cameo ap­pear­ances. Highly ap­pre­ci­ated, the film how­ever did not do well at the BO. Zoya’s sec­ond out­ing the com­ing- of- age road film Zindagi Na Mi­legi Do­bara turned the ta­bles for her. The film not only got good re­views, it also went on to be­come a su­per­hit. Cur­rently, she is film­ing her next, Dil Dhadakne Do, the story of a dys­func­tional Pun­jabi fam­ily on a cruise. She has also co- writ­ten Reema Kagti’s Hon­ey­moon Trav­els and Talaash. All her films have re­volved around the jour­ney of the piv­otal char­ac­ters, al­beit in dif­fer­ent forms!
