’ dropped the trailer and received a good response. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, it takes the audience to the whimsical world of 1960s Riverdale, India.
Karan Johartook to social media and penned a heartfelt note for Zoya Akhtar. He expressed his appreciation for the filmmaker and wrote, “Karan Johar penned the caption, “Zoya and I grew up together.
She was the wiser one, the smarter one, and still is! She waited 7 years to start her first film (so much for nepotism and privilege), and she had more actors turn her down than most tables at high-end restaurants. She still, with passion and perseverance, got to make Luck by Chance, which was the most critically acclaimed film of that year, but didn’t have that luck at the box office. She then directed my favorite ZO Akhtar film, ZNMD, keeping her conviction intact (I was told to edit it tighter, remove driving shots in a “road trip” film, and add an item song). She listened to her inner voice and not anyone else and made a super hit award-winning film!”
“Everyone has a journey! She has had her one! After the monumental success of
, the world was at her feet, but her weapon of belief took her back to her childhood memories of her favorite comic book! She could have made a film with an ensemble of superstars, but she did what she believed in! Zo! The trailer is reflective of everything you stand for, which is your paramount conviction! The 7 kids are blessed to work under your priceless guidance! So excited for you, Zoya, and the exciting ensemble of talent! Welcome to the movies!”, he continued.
