Mumbai, Feb 18: Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy was invited to the Berlinale International Film Festival earlier this month where Zoya declares that the experience was "fantastic".
"It was a 1,800-seater cinema. I have never been in a cinema hall that is so huge! The screen was about 70, 80 feet tall! To watch your film on such a big screen is an OMG moment in itself," Zoya says happily.
The critics have applauded Gully Boys and the word of mouth has been remarkably good for a movie that is about an art form -- rap -- that many Indians are unfamiliar with. Clearly, Gully Boys reveals Zoya at the top of her movie-making game and tops her roster of fine films.
"Sometimes you make a lot of money, but the film is considered crap. And sometimes the film is genuinely good but makes no money. You are lucky when it is great and makes money," Zoya told
