Producer, Director, Actor and Singer Farhan Akhtar, the director of the cult-classic Dil Chahta Hai has rubbished rumors that claimed to have major similarities between DCH and his upcoming film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, directed by his sister Zoya Akhtar.
Talking to reporters, Farhan said “Dil Chahta Hai was long ago. You see here there are three boys riding in a car. That might have drawn the comparisons, but that’s really where the comparison ends. This story is way ahead and has much more to offer. It’s also much more mature in the way its written than Dil Chahta Hai.”
Zoya on the other hand was quite happy with the comparisons “I loved Dil Chahta Hai. I have worked in it (as an assistant director). If this film reminds people of Dil Chahta Hai and would go to watch it, it would be a compliment”
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara releases on July 15 and stars Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.
