SUBHASH GHAI and ZOYA AKHTAR
As Rommy Rolly, Rishi Kapoor may have incorporated quite a few shades of Subhash Ghai in his portrayal of an old time film maker who is currently struggling to get top-line actors work in his production. Still, that hasn't deterred the ex-Showman himself from calling up Zoya and appreciating her for her efforts in LUCK BY CHANCE. An act of some sporting spirit here considering there are hardly any film makers out there who would be happy to take such a step.
Says a visibly thrilled Zoya who has been gathering all the appreciation coming her way ever since the release of the film over the weekend gone by, ''It was so good to hear from Subhash Ghai. Not just him, other industry veterans like Paresh Rawal and Sudhir Mishra too have hailed the film. It is so overwhelming.''
Though Zoya keeps it all modest and only maintains that lot of people from both within and outside the industry have sent her encouraging note, a source close to her reveals, ''There are quite a few bigwigs from the industry who have noted her effort. People like Karan Johar, Farah Khan, Kunal Kohli and Feroze Khan have all been unanimous in their declaration that LUCK BY CHANCE is a wonderful piece of work by Zoya. Even the younger lot comprising of film makers like Tarun Mansukhani, Shirish Kunder and others have been appreciative of her work.''
Meanwhile Zoya is happy that after a relative slow start on Friday morning, the word of mouth saw an escalation in collections over the weekend. ''Yeah, it was the audience response that was quite important for the film. I was glad to see media being very positive about the movie and now it was up to the audience to lap it up. Thankfully, it all seems to be on the right track now. I now want to see how the film holds on over the week'', says Zoya in hopeful tone.
