Khoya Khoya Chand - Movie Preview

Character Sketch

Shiney Ahuja as Zafar Ali Naqvi

From the corridors of an old Nawabi family in Lucknow… emerges a rebellious young writer with new ideas.

In Bombay he chances upon the world of cinema… And before he knows it, he is drawn into this glittering world.

Will his rebellious and independent spirit survive the cruel and harsh realities of the film industry?

Soha Ali Khan as Nikhat Bano

The beautiful young girl who makes the journey from a fledgling extra, to a starlet to a great heroine. In a world where ambition rules.. no price is too high for stardom.. Where does one draw the line?

She yearns for freedom.. yet she seeks protection..the choices she has to make are never easy.. love cannot be forfeited for ambition and ambition cannot be traded for love.

Sonya Jehan as Ratanbala

The reigning diva..insecure and neurotic.. falling in love, losing in love, and then a breakdown.. her life seems to have a recurring pattern. But as easily she springs back to life.. jilted by the superstar, threatened by the usurper.. she holds her own..even as the makes a play for Zafar.

Rajat Kapoor as Prem Kumar

The quintessential superstar. Charming, irresistible..Godfather and master manipulator. A man of many desires..but age is catching up with him and he can see his stardom fading.. he has to reinvent himself.. retain his throne.. ambition beats strong in his heart.


Set against the compelling magnetism of the world of cinema is the tumultuous story of Nikhat and Zafar.

The film industry is a magical world.. from awe-inspiring superstars and feisty studio-owners to fashionable divas with scandalous stories.. huge talent and oversized egos, beautiful and ugly individuals and the tantalizing lure of stardom.. a world of glittering dreams and harsh realities.. golden yet cruel.

Spanning the two decades of the 1950's and 60's, KKC is a tribute to the Hindi film industry's Golden Years and its magnificent people.
Produced by Prakash Jha and directed by Sudhir Mishra, KKC has music by
Shantanu Moitra and the movie is slated for an October 26 release.
