Zoya applauds her ladies

Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar says that actresses often suffer from their internal politics and make it very difficult for a director to sign more than one for a particular film. But for director Zoya Akhtar casting Kalki Koechlin with Katrina Kaif in her forthcoming film 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' is no problem. She adds that when a superstar like Katrina is in the movie, other stars won't agree to do the kind of role Kalki has done in the film. However, she has high regard for Kalki's acting capabilities and feels the Indian actress of the French descent fitted the bill for the character she conceived. Zoya further said that Kalki is a very interesting actress and was perfect for the role. 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' is a film about a road trip, which shows how the life of three men - Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar and Hrithik Roshan, changes when they go for a holiday. It is set to hit the theatres on July 15.
Interestingly, Zoya is the only person in Bollywood who has directed his brother, Farhan in their 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. Moreover, Farhan likes to work with her, as she is very clear about what she wants from her actors. Earlier, Farhan acted in their ‘Luck By Chance’. Farhan recalled how his mother tried explaining to him about the importance of career and threw him out of the house. This helped sporty Farhan to make his first film ‘Dil Chahta Hai’10 years ago which turned out to be a roaring success. Farhan also talked about how people liked his film ‘Lakshya’ or how they are waiting for ‘Don 2’. Well, Farhan’s mother did the right thing of throwing him out otherwise we would have missed to see ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, ‘Lakhsya’, ‘Don’ and others!
