Zoya Akhtar a well known name in Bollywood film industry feels sad when a good film which has a good script fails to garner the moolah and audience at the box office. She was stunned when she figured that most of the audience did not understand her debut film ‘Luck By Chance’. “I feel sad when good films do not make money. A good filmmaker should make good money, like ‘Udaan’ and my first film ‘Luck By Chance’ should have made money,” Zoya said.
“I think ‘Luck By Chance’ was commercial but most people did not understand the film. Like I saw the reaction of the people… there were two college girls who said they did not understand the film,” she said, while attending film critic and TV host Anupama Chopra’s book launch – ‘100 films to see before you die’ – here last evening.
However, Zoya fails to comprehend what was not understood in the film. “If you say you did not like the film.. its ok. I think you have to simplify certain things and think about these people who don’t get it,” she added.
