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' too.

She next directed, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), which starred Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin. The film did very well at the box-office.

In 2013, her next film, Bombay Talkies released. This four-part film was made to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema. Besides Zoya, the other three directors working on the film were Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banerjee.
