Vidya Balan is all praise for THIS female director; says, “She’s a worthy contender” – Guess who!
At the recently held Critics Choice Film Awards, Vidya Balan had something to say about this female director. Vidya said that this lady was a worthy contender for the next year’s Best Director award. Any guesses which lady director we are talking about?
Well, it’s none other than ‘Gully Boy’ director Zoya Akhtar. ‘Gully Boy’, which was released earlier this year, saw massive success in the country and overseas. Inspired by rappers of Dharavi, ‘Gully Boy’ is a story that is shining a light on India’s incipient hip-hop subculture. The film has raked in humongous appreciation from across quarters.
Talking of Zoya, her directorial ventures have been appreciated a lot. Right from her debut film ‘Luck By Chance’, she has been getting rave reviews. Films like ‘Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ have just gone ahead and established her as a director with a strong voice.
The acclaimed director, with four feature films, two short films, and one web series under her belt, has carved a niche for herself in the Entertainment industry. Her projects are known for their impactful storylines and multi-dimensional characters.
Hushed rumours in the film industry say that Zoya might be directing the next installment of ‘Don’, which might star Ranveer Singh alongside Shah Rukh Khan. The leading lady of the franchise, Priyanka Chopra has been a favourite of Zoya and the two have worked together in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’. Will she be back in the third installment of the film franchise? Only time will tell.
