Zoa Morani is an Indian actress who appears in Bollywood films.[1]


Morani started off as an assistant director for the 2007 film Om Shanti Om and was assistant director for Halla Bol (2008) as well.[2] Apparently, though Morani had no interest in directing films, she took up these roles to familiarise herself with acting.[3] She made her acting debut in Shahrukh Khan's production Always Kabhi Kabhi in 2011 and has thereafter been signed by film director Shyam Benegal for his next film.[1] In 2011, she took up a modelling assignment during the Lakme Fashion Week.[2] She has since appeared in the 2012 edition of the Lakme Fashion Week as well.[4]

Morani was signed by Vikram Bhatt for his film Bhaag Johnny opposite Kunal Khemu and Mandana Karimi.[5][6][7] The film was co-produced by Bhushan Kumar and Vikram Bhatt and was released in 2015.

Morani is the daughter of Karim Morani,[8] a Bollywood film producer and director of Cineyug Entertainment, one of Bollywood's biggest event management companies. Karim Morani is an accused in the 2G spectrum case. She is an Ismaili Muslim by birth.[9]
