The long wait for cinema audiences everywhere is now over with Zoyaâ€™s Luck By Chance produced by Excel Entertainment and Reliance Big Pictures hitting the screens on January 30. Interestingly, the Khans play themselves in the film, but regretfully donâ€™t share screen space and appear at different times individually. SRK interacts with Farhan and Aamir with Konkona. Both superstars have excellent relationships with Farhan and Zoya and both wanted to support this film.Even though Aamir doesnâ€™t do cameos, he readily agreed because he is familiar with the set-up having worked with producer Ritesh Sidhwani and director-actor Farhan in Dil Chahta Hai.
Also, Aamir who works on bound scripts only, had already read Luck By Chanceâ€™s script when Zoya took it to him for feedback some years ago. So that was also okay.â€œInitially, we were in a fix wondering how to talk to him, knowing his stance on cameos, till dad called me up to say he had spoken to Aamir,â€ explained the Zoya. Once dad Javed Akhtar succeeded with Aamir, SRK was easy to approach. â€œI personally spoke to Shah Rukh. But I wonâ€™t like to take the credit alone, because both actors did it out of friendship for Farhan and Ritesh. There is a lot of respect between all of us,â€ she added.
The film has Bollywood as its backdrop with Farhan playing a struggling actor opposite Konkana. â€œThis is the first original story that gives you an insiderâ€™s journey of the film industry. A strugglerâ€™s experience,â€ said Ritesh. And hereâ€™s another little secret: Aamir shot for the film when he was in the midst of Ghajini and had the tonsured look; so, the consummate actor agreed to wear a wig for Zoya!
