Sonam Kapoor to share the screen with Dulquer Salmaan in The Zoya Factor

by Unik Dhandhi, Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Isn't Sonam Kapoor all about reaching new boundaries? Well our lovely Bollywood diva is all set to collaborate with Malayalam actor Dulquer Salaam for the screen adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s best-selling novel The Zoya Factor. While the film is yet to go on floors, the lead actors have done a photo-shoot for it that will leave movie buffs across the country excited.

The movie will be directed by Abhishek Sharma

Though Dulquer Salaam will make his Bollywood debut with Ronnie Screwala’s Karwaan, co-starring Mithila Palkar and Irrfan Khan. The Zoya Factor will be his second outing. Hurray!


In the photo, shared by Neerja star Sonam on her official Twitter handle, she along with Dulquer is posing with a copy of the novel with the name of their characters mentioned on it. “Super happy to be a part of this unique story #ZoyaFactor an adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s bestseller. Releasing on April 5, 2019! Directed by #AbhishekSharma, co-starring @dulQuer @foxstarhindi #AdlabsFilms,” tweeted Sonam.


Also, the actor who plays an advertising agent Zoya Singh Solanki in the movie has announced the release date of the film too. Bankrolled by Fox Star Studios, the love story will hit the theaters next year on April 5.


Talking about the film, director Abhishek Sharma of Tere Bin Laden fame said, “Cricket woven into a rom-com and touching on superstition and luck, it’s an amazing book for a screen adaptation. The book has many layers, characters and tracks, so it took Neha Rakesh Sharma some time to pen a tight screenplay and Pradhuman Singh to write the dialogues. Now, we’ve gone back to Anuja who’s happy with the script to polish it and work on additional dialogues as nobody knows the characters better than her.”


The book is about a Rajput girl named Zoya Singh Solanki who meets the Indian Cricket Team through her job as an executive in an advertising agency and ends up becoming a lucky charm for the team in the 2010 Cricket World Cup. Eventually, Zoya falls for skipper Nikhil Khoda who doesn’t believe in luck and superstitions.


Sounds romantic and just what Sonam after serious and intense roles.
