During an interaction with Galatta Plus, Zoya asserted, "Luck By Chance was really acclaimed but it made no money. I feel I owe critics my self-esteem for that period because I survived because of those reviews. You take it very badly when something that you have worked on and nurtured comes out and doesn’t do well."
The filmmaker further added, "I cannot express what it felt to be validated in that way. I just survived. I just felt someone was getting me."
In addition to this, Zoya also shared her thoughts on the possibilities of her popular film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. She said, "I am not going to make any comments on that."
Apart from this, Akhtar went on to speak about her brother and actor-director Farhan Akhtar’s next project Jee Le Zaraa. She remarked, "I think what’s most exciting now is Jee Le Zaraa that Farhan is making. He is going to have a blast directing that."
Coming back to The Archies, recently, the makers held a screening of the film at Nita Mukesh Ambani Culture Center. Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Karan Johar and many others marked themselves present. The Archies is all set to release on Netflix on December 7.
