Three filmmakers from Bollywood with their own different styles – Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar – shared their takes on cinema, friends and more on Karan Johar’s talk show.
When siblings Farhan and Zoya Akhtar appeared on Karan’s show, we expected a lot of insider talk on stepmother Shabana Azmi’s entry into their life. But Farhan and Zoya were casual and and cheery about their childhood and their father, Javed Akhtar’s second marriage to Shabana Azmi. Farhan agrees that there were times when things were not well between him and his father after his dad Javed Akhtar divorced Farhan’s mother, Honey Irani. Zoya reminisced her crazy teenage years and credits bro Farhan for helping her during those times. They also appreciate Shabana for givning them their space at the beginning of their relationship.
Zoya who has directed has her brother in Luck By Chance, is working on her next project with Farhan, Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
