Writer-director Zoya Akhtar, who won accolades for her last project "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara", is now busy scripting a family drama.

"I am writing a family drama now. I have not finished the script yet, so it is too premature to talk about it. But all I can say is that it is my kind of family drama," Zoya told IANS.

Her first directorial, "Luck By Chance" in 2009, was about a struggler's rise in Bollywood. The second, "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara", was a light-hearted entertainer on love and friendship.

Daughter of veteran writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar, Zoya says she wants to continue experimenting with different stories.

"I want to try different stories. I want to do something new and try various themes," said the 40-year-old.

As a writer, Zoya has worked on the script of the soon-to-be-released "Talaash", a suspense thriller, a genre she loves.

"This film is a suspense drama. I had met with an incident which I still have not understood. When I spoke to (director) Reema (Kagti), we were thinking how can we adapt that and make a story out of it. I love the genre of suspense drama. We don't make these kind of films in India anymore, I don't know why," she said,

"Talaash", releasing Nov 30, features Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.
