Zoya Akhtar on ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’

Filed under: Video Vault — Rajeev @ 11:35 pm

In this interview,  Zoya Akhtar – director of one of my favourite films recently, Luck By Chance – talks about her new film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, a coming-of-age ensemble piece starring Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol.

(This interview first aired on CNN-IBN)


  1. I have a feeling hrithik is more of a solo hero kind of guy. i dont see the bonding or friendship between the three guys any where in the trailer. even though i liked luck by chance , i have a feeling this movie may not work( but i really want it to work). so keeping my fingers crossed

  3. Zoya is just lovely- intelligent, witty and so cute. I can hardly believe she belongs to Bollywood, she is so refreshingly different from all the bimbos, the sleazy boorish directors, arrogant, juvenile ‘superstars’ and the actresses who are basically glorified item girls and yet act like fake, demure virgins to endear themselves to the hypocritical audience.

    Its nice to see a woman who is genuine, smart and entertaining and doesn’t pretend to be a sati savitri and bake cookies on national television. And Luck By Chance was really a cut above most Hindi films, if it flopped its only because the Indian audience is too dumb to appreciate anything other than the dhamaals and the golmaals

  6. u can classify movies according to there rating so its easy to search for ‘old gold’.
    as per your rating only many people watch the movies.
