I like to work with ensemble cast in my films: Zoya
Mumbai: Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar prefers ensemble cast in her projects, and likes to work with realistic characters that have some sort of back stories.
"I personally like to have an ensemble cast in my projects. I like working with characters. There were five characters in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and 25 characters in Dil Dhadakane Do. If you have an actor that comes into your film and is part of that story, he better have some heft. It's not just information but there needs to be a rounding off and there needs to be a story behind their stories. Otherwise is becomes dull," said Zoya.
All her projects – be it Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do, Gully Boy and 'Made In Heaven' – have had an ensemble cast so far.
