Interestingly, Farhan Akhtar was not the first choice as the lead character in the film Luck By Chance. Zoya Akhtar wanted to start Luck By Chance in 2002 with Vivek Oberoi and Tabu enacting the lead roles. For various reasons, the film got delayed and Vivek became busy otherwise. After watching The Fakir Of Venice, starring Farhan in the lead, her sister and director Zoya Akhtar finalized him for the role along with Konkona Sen Sharma. The story and dialogues for the film Luck By Chance have been written by Farhan and Zoya. The comedy thriller Luck By Chance is releasing on January 30.
