'I want to try different stories'

Nov 22, 2012 :

New project

Zoya Akhtar

Writer-director Zoya Akhtar, who won accolades for her last project Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, is now busy scripting a family drama. “I am writing a family drama now.

I have not finished the script yet, so it is too premature to talk about it. But all I can say is that it is my kind of family drama,” Zoya shares. Her first directorial, ‘Luck By Chance’ in 2009, was about a struggler’s rise in Bollywood. The second, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, was a light-hearted entertainer on love and friendship.

Daughter of veteran writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar, Zoya says she wants to continue experimenting with different stories. “I want to try different stories. I want to do something new and try various themes,” explains the 40-year-old.


As a writer, Zoya has worked on the script of the soon-to-be-released Talaash, a suspense thriller — a genre she loves. “This film is a suspense drama. I had met with an incident which I still have not understood.

When I spoke to (director) Reema, we were thinking about how we could adapt that and make a story out of it. I love the genre of suspense drama. We don’t make these kinds of films in India anymore, I don’t know why,” she says.

Talaash, releasing on November 30, features Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.
