Zoya Akhtar: “I thought ‘Vicky Donor’ was a bit overrated”!

Bollywood renowned director Zoya Akhtar feels that Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Vicky Donor’ somehow failed to impress her and that the movie was an overrated one.

Ont the famous chat show ‘Koffee with Karan’, when Karan Johar asked which was the most overrated film in the last two years, Zoya said it was ‘Vicky Donor’.

I don’t want to be mean but I thought ‘Vicky Donor’ was a bit overrated. I heard so much about it, and then I was a bit disappointed (after watching),” she said.

Starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Yami Gautam and Annu Kapoor, ‘Vicky Donor’ surprised everyone with it’s unique story and beautiful concept.

The film, revolving around sperm donation and infertility, also won national awards in categories of Best Popular Film providing wholesome entertainment, best supporting actor and best supporting actress.

Zoya says, “I think people should leave Romeo Juliet alone. We are done with Romeo and Juliet, too many have been. But there are too many bad remakes.

On the other hand, she thinks that Saif Ali Khan is the most underrated actor in the film industry. She also thinks Saif is the sexiest actor in Bollywood today.
