Konkona Sen Sharma is very choosy when it comes to doing films but she said was not interested in doing the film initially. "I was aware of casting issues in the film and I had no interest in the film. But I always heard that it was a good script written by Zoya. When she called me and gave me the narration, I fell in love with it and decided to sign the film," said Konkona.
Is Luck By Chance a spoof on Bollywood or a serious take on the film industry? we asked her. "I have not got a chance to see the film because I have been busy shooting. It is not completely a spoof and not completely serious. There are some scenes, which you will find funny. Also there's a serious aspect in the film which is kind of cruel to the outsider or people who are aware of that side of the industry. So it's a mix of everything," she revealed.
Konkona plays an actress in the film. When asked whether her character is inspired by any real life personality, Konkana laughs and said, "It's completely fictional. I play a girl called Sonam Mishra. She is from Kanpur and comes to Mumbai with a dream to become an actress. She is young and ambitious and will not compromise to become successful. Unfortunately, she has to struggle a lot and gets roles like that of a hero's sister or heroine's best friend. She also gets B grade movies."
The actress said that she has not experienced it in real life. "It hasn't ever happened to me personally. I know it's very common thing in the film industry. I have heard such stories and know some people who have gone through the same," she added.
This was Konkona's first film with Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. "Farhan is very good actor and it was fun working with him. He is very natural and Zoya is very clear about what she wants. Though this is her first film she seems to have a lot of experience," she said.
