Happy Birthday Zoya Akhtar! The secret behind her movie titles

Director Zoya Akhtar has set a benchmark in the industry with her films ‘Luck By Chance’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, among others. Zoya has always kept a bit of herself hidden from the outlook. Today, on October 14, as she celebrates her 44th birthday here’s something exciting we have noticed about the director.

Did you ever notice that Zoya has a tendency of getting film titles from songs and especially songs from Excel Entertainment films ? Not sure? Okay. Here we go.

Remember the background score ‘Rock on…’ of the mountain climbing scene of the film ‘Lakshya’ (2004)? The score was used for the title of her film ‘Rock On’ (2008).

Now the second, the title of her super hit film ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ (2011) was extracted from the title song of the film ‘Rock On’.

Here comes the third, in ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ there is a song called ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ (2015) which was her next film title.

The titles are perfect looking at the story lines and apparently the strategy has proved extremely lucky for her.
