He was her last resort for her critically-acclaimed directorial debut Luck By Chance. But for her second film Zoya Akhtar has specially written a part for brother Farhan.
"It's a road movie set in Spain about three boys and one of the three characters is definitely Farhan. I knew I wanted him. I was very clear that I wanted to work with him again," said Zoya.
Daughter of well-known lyricist Javed Akhtar, Zoya informed that her writer filmmaker-actor brother will not only act in the film, but also pen the dialogues for it.
"I am writing this film with Reema Kagti. I'm wrapping up the script but as of now it is not locked yet. Then probably I'll sit with Farhan for the dialogues and the casting," she said.
Throwing light on the film, she said: "It's a coming of age genre. But it'll be simpler than Luck By Chance and simpler to understand. A feel-good factor will be there in that sense," said Zoya on the sidelines of the ongoing 11th annual Osian's Cinefan Film Festival of Asian and Arab Cinema.
Asked is her movie was in any sense a follow up to the upcoming Abhay Deol-starrer Road Movie, she said: "The trend's been there. Look at Jab We Met. It is a road film. It's got that vibe of a road movie. And the promos to the Road Movie are gorgeous too."
