Mumbai, Oct 4 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Actors-turned-producers Zayed Khan and Dia Mirza are all keyed up about their first movie, ‘Love, Breakups, Zindagi’ (LBZ).
In a tete-a-tete with Komal Nahta on the show ETC Bollywood Business on channel ETC, Zayed Khan and Dia Mirza talks about their experiences.
LBZ is produced by Zayed Khan, Dia Mirza, and Sahil Sangha, backed by Sahara Motion Pictures.
Explaining their reasons to turn producers for this movie, Zayed said, “Producer might have a different idea, agenda..aur unki bhi sunni padegi…probably in the due process we would loose the flavor of the movie in this way…” Diya added further saying, “We became Producer because we wanted absolute creative control.”
However Diya also raised a concern saying, “Logo ka perception about producers is very unfortunate.”
A take away from the experience, after turning Producer, Zayed Khan and Sahil Sangha believes that ‘Har Actor ko Producer banna chahiye, kyunki unhe tab hi paise aur time ki value samajh me ayegi.’
Talking about her Bollywood career till date, Diya said, “Perhaps the longest time, I haven’t been casted in the lead parts. The truth is, Agar aapki film superhit hai, toh sab apko cast karege whether you have the talent or not. If you have the looks and half the talent, it will work.”
Answering about his experience, Zayed shared, “There have been times when you work with brilliant people but it doesn’t pays off for you.”
Talking about her Love and Zindagi, her love in life Sahil Sangha, Diya said, “I am blessed that, I finally found my life partner and marriage is just a formality which will happen in due course. I and Sahil were seeing each other before the movie started.”
