Blessed to act in Gulzar’s play: Zoa
Actor Zoa Morani (below), who has worked in films such as Bhaag Johnny (2015) and Always Kabhi Kabhi (2011), is now experimenting in the theatre circuit. “I am working in a play, which is directed by Salim Arif and adapted by Gulzar. Earlier, I have worked in two plays written by Gulzar. I feel blessed to be a part of the plays, which are written by Gulzaar sahab, as I got the opportunity to learn about tehzeeb and language,” she says.
Though coming from a very strong film background, Zoa wants to try things on her own and is open to explore different genres. “After theatre, I experienced an internal shift in me as an actor. I want to do films as well. I would love to do hardcore commercial, rom-com films and dark realistic films. I don’t want to confine myself,” she said. Zoa shares that right now she is considering some scripts and she will make an official announcement as soon as something interesting comes her way.
Whether star kids are favoured in the industry, Zoa, daughter of Karim Morani, producer of films such as Chennai Express (2013) says, “Nepotism exists in every field. When your entire family is doing the same business, then it is obvious that children will take that business forward, but eventually, it also depends on how focused and talented that person is at his task. Love from the audience is also a deciding factor in an actor’s career.”
