Ever since her first film, Zoya Akhtar has proved that she has a brilliant understanding of the art of storytelling. Her last feature film Gully Boy brought about Indian street rap to the spotlight and created a trend of sorts in the country. Last year, Zoya also teamed up with Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap for the Netflix Original Lust Stories, which is nominated at the International Emmys in the TV Movie/Mini Series category.
As she gears up to attend the International Emmys in New York, we had a little chat with the director before the show. She said, “I am very excited. It’s fun. It’s fun to be nominated, it’s fun to be validated. To be here, with filmmakers from all over the world. We’re nominated along with candidates from Hungary, Australia and Brazil… so it’s fun. So it’s the four of us and Ashi and Ronnie, who are technically the nominees. So it’s going to be a big band of us. It’s nice.”
