Zoya Akhtar Profile
Zoya Akhtar, the daughter of Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani and sister to Farhan Akhtar, did not have such an easy entry to the industry as her brother did. The young director struggled for years before she could debut with Luck By Chance.
Luckily for her, nobody doubted her ability or talent all which was apparent when 'Luck By Chance' (2009), which she wrote and directed, was released. Zoya has worked her way up as assistant director, first with Kaizad Gustad in Bombay Boys, then brother Farhan in Dil Chahta Hai and Lakshya. She has worked as casting director for mother Honey Irani's Armaan and Farhan's 'Lakshya' and 'Dil Chahta Hai'..
