Thus, it was a break for her, me-time and she could not manage to make a film or direct a good one. She had been trying to work consistently and it felt nice to her.
Refusing to compare her body of work or the way she works with other filmmakers, Zoya Akhtar insists that she was in need to get that push, a big push from within and only then she can write a script or get a script or can make a film. She added that she needs to have a story that truly wants to tell something special, and then she can create a sense to put the things out there, and then only a film can be successful.
She said that she likes movies as well. Due to the reason she cannot think about anything without the films. She watches almost all types of films and tries to make something new that the audience may like. Her first and foremost choice is to make a film that audience like if it is a film with her brother Farhan then it would be more enjoyable for her. Now when she likes this genre, so she will do it in the future, so we are going to have a new film with a talented director and actors.
