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!
