Zoya Akhtar denies making documentary on Indian cinema

By Hindustan Times

Director Zoya Akhtar has brushed off rumours that she is planning to shoot a documentary to commemorate 100 years of Indian cinema. However, she had dropped a hint that she has something in store for the occasion. "No, I am not making a documentary and it's something that's going to be
announced over the weekend. It's not my production so I cannot talk about it till it comes out," the 39-year-old said here.

There were reports that Zoya is set to start shooting for a documentary titled Sheila Ki Jawaani which will also star actress Katrina Kaif in a cameo.

It was supposedly the story of a boy who loves item numbers and wants to meet Sheila in reality. Katrina had, apparently, even given her nod for the documentary.

Indian cinema will complete a century since its first full-length feature film Raja Harishchandra was made in 1913. A silent movie, it was directed and produced by Dadasaheb Phalke, after whom the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award is named.
