‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ clocks 10 years: Zoya Akhtar gives a throwback

Director Zoya Akhtar shares a throwback picture as her road comedy-drama, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ clocks 10 years.


‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ clocks 10 years on Thursday and to celebrate the successful movie filmmaker, Zoya Akhtar shared a throwback picture. The road comedy-drama was released in 2011 and starred Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol in the lead roles and it also had Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin play pivotal roles in the film.

Taking to her Instagram, Zoya Akhtar brought back the good old memories for the fans from the sets of the film as she shared an important element of the film. Sharing the iconic Buick super convertible which featured in the song ‘Khaabon Ke Parinday’, she captioned the post, “Time To Take The Car Out Again”. Using several hashtags, she added, “Thank You to the best Cast and Crew EVAH!”

As soon as she dropped the post love showered from all directions. Actor Hrithik Roshan who was a part of the film commented, “Hahaha yeah baby!”. Filmmaker Karan Johar also took to the comment section and wrote, “What a beautiful film Zo!! One of my all-time favourites.”

Hrithik once had mentioned to ETimes in an interview that he’d love to do another film like ZNMD. He said, “I would love to do another film like this where it’s with friends and it’s an ensemble. I remember when I signed this film on, a lot of my father’s friends were very concerned about me, out of sheer love for me. They thought I was making a big mistake because I was playing one of the parts among three characters and it was certainly not the central character.”

Talking about his role in the film he said, “It wasn’t like I was the hero of the film and Farhan and Abhay were small parts of the film. The general rule at that time was that you have to uphold the star status, and I knew this film was talking about exactly the opposite. It kind of empowered me because it’s a story that I believed in, and I thought, ‘to hell with the status’, which is merely something that people give you. The work that you do is something that comes out of your own desire.”

The film spills out major travelling, friendship and adventure goals to the audience and hence it lived up to the energy by becoming a hit as it was released and still has maintained a top position in the hearts of people.
