Recently, Zoya Akhtar was nominated to become a member of the Oscar academy of motion picture arts and sciences. Owing to her talent and the progressive projects that she has helmed, Zoya Akhtar is one of the most highly celebrated Directors of her generation, giving us timeless movies like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do, and Gullyboy.

With a journey of four feature films, two short films, and one web series, Zoya Akhtar is one of the leading filmmakers who has carved her niche in the entertainment industry and her presence at the Academy is certainly a moment of pride for all.

Ghost Stories is a part of the series that was earlier made as Bombay Talkies, which was a celebration of love for cinema in 2013 with the same directors making a short of 30 minutes each. The shoot of Zoya Akhtar's short has just begun and will be produced by RSVP Pictures and Tiger Baby.

"As a writer/director, I thrive on bending genres and inverting tropes and I am so looking forward to attempting that with a ghost story," Zoya said in a chat with IANS.

The director will be back with Made in heaven season two and we cannot wait to witness the magic she brings with her commendable work.
