Reema kagti and zoya akhtar dating aj and joe jonas dating
I for one was extremely satisfied with the way Aamir contributed to the film.
Was it tough directing an actor as big as Aamir Khan?
She then worked as an executive producer for her longtime partner Reema Kagti's Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Zoya made her directorial debut with Luck By Chance (2009), starring her brother Farhan Akhtar and Konkana Sen Sharma.
It tells the story of a struggling actor who breaks into the industry.
Zoya started her career as co-director of a music video called Price of Bullets for a rock band called Pentagram.
She has worked as a casting director for films including Dil Chahta Hai and Split Wide Open, and as an assistant director for her brother Farhan Akhtar's films Lakshya and Dil Chahta Hai.
I don’t think that being a woman, I was at any disadvantage while directing.
It turned out to be a huge box office success and was well received by critics and won her the Filmfare Award for Best Director.
Before me, Farah Khan has done it, and done it very well. I was very aware when we approached him that it is not easy to convince him to do a film, as I know that he thinks and understands the role before he commits to it.
Last year, Zoya’s film was also in a similar space. But even when I and Zoya were writing the film, we had Aamir in mind. Now exactly how many times he thought about it, I don’t know.
And to manage a casting coup of sorts too, with Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji in the same film, is indeed a cause for celebration. The outspoken director is confident about her story.
And though she agrees that a big star helps in selling a film, a watertight script and content are more important to her. What is it like, being a woman and directing a very masculine suspense drama?
