Zoya Akhtar over the last few years has proven herself to be a great director. Not only does she have an eye for detail, but her movies also have an emotional hook to it.
It can easily be said that there brother Farhan Akhtar has a lot to do with her success. As some of her more successful films, ‘Luck By Chance’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, not only starred him, but were also produced by his production house.
Now it seems that this dream collaboration with Excel Entertainment is about to end. As Zoya has officially decided to open her own production house.
This new production house is being called Tiger Baby Productions. Her new film ‘Gully Boy’ starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt will be the first project to be made under Tiger Baby.
Interestingly, Farhan will still be co-producing the film with her. “Farhan wants to be a part of his sister’s film and hence he offered to be the co-producer. Zoya has agreed because of a personal equation with her brother. But, she has professional differences with Farhan and hence does not want to mix her drinks,” a source said.
Some people would call this a loving collaboration between family. Others would call it unnecessary interference. Whatever it may be, it seems that even with a new name, the team remains as close as ever.
