Ida Ali: We do have long discussions about the scripts
Bollywood's all-time favorite director Imtiaz Ali has always touched the hearts of millions with stories that one can relate with. The award-winning director who has to his name renowned films like LOVE AAJ KAL, JAB WE MET, ROCKSTAR among others has ruled the industry for years. His fans always wonder how he always manages to bring scripts that are so unusual and beautiful. Guess, we know how he weaves in that magic in his stories as his daughter Ida Ali quipped sharing advice at times to his father for scripts at the ‘HELLO! Debutants Ball 2018’ - Celebrating the rising stars.
The 17-year-old who is basking in the glory of the success of her short film, added another title to her name as one of the debutants at HELLO! Debutants Ball 2018. India's first ever debutant Ball that introduced the young men and women from creatively renowned families had Ida Ali grace the stage. Being a director’s daughter, she was asked the obvious as to What’s your favourite film of all time? And why? and while everyone expected her to mention one of her dad's films, she replied, "It has to be Tim Burton's BIG Fish. That movie creates such a surreal world and a world that I would like to be in. So, any movie that would do that is just amazing." She was further asked if she has ever given any advice to her dad on his movies. She candidly mentioned, "I am not sure whether I am allowed to say that but, we do have long discussions about the scripts and sometimes I do give him some useful piece of advice."
The father-daughter duo is certainly setting a sweet example for their fans. The talented Ida Ali who is following her dad’s footsteps surely would have some insights to share and discuss with her dad and it’s rightly said, ‘A piece of advice goes a long way’.
