An actor (Hrithik Roshan) who is caught in the web of his own stardom. A producer (Rishi Kapoor) who is finding it hard to find stars for his film. A star kid (Isha Sharvani) who is getting into 'Helloji Namasteji' mode. A Diva (Dimple Kapadia) who is looking at taking her brand name forward. A film maker (Sanjay Kapoor) who looks for West for inspiration. And still film maker Zoya Akhtar insists that LUCK BY CHANCE is not a spoof on the film industry. Also she denies that her film makes any promises of getting into the underbelly of Bollywood.

''No ways does LUCK BY CHANCE get into the underbelly of the film industry? Come on, I don't have that kind of access'', smiles Zoya Akhtar, daughter of Javed Akhtar and brother of Farhan Akhtar, ''Also, the film does not spoof Bollywood. It's just that because of my industry background, I can share quite a few anecdotes and incidents that I have witnessed over the years.''

CHECK OUT: I was frustrated when LUCK BY CHANCE wasn't kicking off

Talking more about the film she says, ''The film will show a lot though of how the film industry functions. Still, primarily it's a journey of two strugglers, how they meet and who are the people from the industry they meet on their way. Other than them (Farhan Akhtar, Konkona Sen Sharma), the film is about a producer and a Diva and the star kids.''

Any real life inspirations here. ''A lot, otherwise LUCK BY CHANCE couldn't have shaped the way it has today'', she responds quickly, ''I have shared examples of people whom I have hung out with or interacted with like the extras, dancers, hair stylists, assistant directors etc.''

As per Zoya, the film is more of a satire, ''But definitely not spoofy. See, most people in the industry are entertaining by themselves in any case. So, there is no need to spoof them; just portray them the way they are and that's entertaining enough.''
