Bits of gossip about Zoya Akhtar that she is directing a movie based on the street rappers have been doing the rounds for quite a while. In accordance with the reports, Joya’s first choice had been roped with casting Super Star Ranveer Singh to play the lead role in this project.
While Zoya has now affirmed the news of making such a film, she declines to reveal another aspect of her upcoming project. She says, “I am not permitted to share any information about this film until the makers make an official declaration.”
While Farhan Akhtar, Zoya’s brother have been making rocking waves about her sister’s upcoming project, she says she has “no musical ability”. “I have an appreciation for her attempts, however. I listen to a wide range of music. I adore jazz, rock, and hip-hop more. From The Beatles to Led Zepplin and The Rolling Stones— I adore their music,” she says.
As far, she is well known for her drama and film making skills. However, Zoya says she is now ready to explore Bollywood’s new genre, thrillers. She says, ” I already wrote one, Talaash in 2012, but now I am looking forward to direct a gangster or a thriller movie. These are the sorts of movies that I love to watch. I simply need a decent story to work,” she says.
