Official: Dulquer Salmaan and Sonam Kapoor team up for Zoya Factor!
We were among the first to report about Dulquer Salmaan signing for the movie adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s novel ‘The Zoya Factor’. The movie’s official announcement was made today by Dulquer in his social media handle. Dulquer is playing the lead in the movie along with Sonam Kapoor.
Anuja Chauhan’s novel revolves around a PR executive Zoya Singh Solanki, who was born on the exact moment when Indian cricket team had lifted the 1983 World Cup. Zoya is considered as a lucky charm by the Indian team as well as the media. But, the team’s captain, Nikhil Khoda doesn’t believe in luck and relies on performance. Zoya keeps clashing with the Indian skipper, and what follows is a love-hate relationship.
While Sonam Kapoor plays Zoya’s role, Dulquer essays the role of Nikhil Khoda in the movie. Reportedly, the actor is planning to take a month long training for playing the cricketer’s role. Abhishek Sharma will be directing the movie, which is to be jointly funded by Fox Star Studios and Adlabs Films. The movie is slated to hit screens on April 5, 2019.
Zoya Factor is Dulquer’s second Hindi movie. His debut film ‘Karwaan’, which also stars Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar is due for release on June 1.
