"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."
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.''
