Director of the month: Zoya Akhtar
Zoya Akhtar is one of those women in the Hindi film industry who have successfully marked their territory in the zone which has been ruled by men in the business, and let’s acknowledge the fact that she has done it pretty well.
Zoya is a daughter of legend Javed Akhtar and screenwriter Honey Irani. (Still wondering where’s the talent coming from?) She had a terrific start to 2019 as both her projects—film Gully Boy and web series Made in Heaven, received an overwhelming response from the audience and the critics alike.
She had marked her name in the books of the visionaries in 2007 itself when her debut movie “Luck by chance” was released. No! It wasn’t a hit. But critics had a different opinion altogether. Guess they weren’t wrong after all!
“I feel you have to do something that you believe in and you have to do it as honestly and truthfully as you can and then whatever happens, happens for the best. You can’t look at the end result. You have to just enjoy the process.
“On another thought, what do you think will happen in Made in Heaven Season 2?
