Zoya Akhtar, making her mark as a director, showcased her visionary prowess, setting the stage for the remarkable career she has.

Zoya spent 7 years straight to get the film started. She approached 6 actors to play the lead part and faced rejection from them all. She spent those years assisting other directors and working as a casting director. Finally, her brother and actor Farhan Akhtar took up the part, garnering immense praise for his performance in the film.

‘Luck By Chance’ revolves around two characters – Sona (Konkona Sen Sharma) and Vikram (Farhan Akhtar) – who have come to the city of dreams to make it big in the entertainment industry. While Sona has been struggling for years as an actor, Vikram chances upon an opportunity to become a male lead in a film. This choice he makes shows how his relationship with his friend and his lover changes.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Farhan will be returning to the director’s chair after almost 11 years with a female-oriented road trip film, ‘Jee Le Zara,’ featuring Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.

He announced the film in 2021, promising another tale of friendship following the lineage of ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.’

He will also direct ‘Don 3,’ headlined by Ranveer Singh. (ANI)
