Sonam Kapoor excited about working with Dulquer Salmaan in Zoya Factor
As we already know, Dulquer Salmaan is a busy actor these days with a handful of projects coming up in Tamil and Hindi. Even before the release of his debut Hindi movie, Karwaan, Dulquer signed his next, Zoya Factor in which he is paired opposite Sonam Kapoor. Zoya Factor is the big screen adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s 2008 best seller novel of the same name.
Sonam Kapoor in a recent interview sounded all excited about working with Dulquer Salmaan. Apparently, the actress has watched a few of Dulquer’s movies and rates him quite high as an actor.
She is quoted saying, “Dulquer is really cute and such a good actor. I have seen his film Okay Kanmani and he was fabulous in that. I really liked him in that movie and I have a history of working with South Indian actors. Dhanush was launched with Raanjhanaa, so I think I work well with them. I haven’t started prepping with Dulquer. It’s starting in August so I am looking forward to working with him. We will start in August or September.”
Zoya Factor, the novel is centred around Zoya Singh Solanki, a PR executive. Zoya 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 and media. While everyone consider her lucky, team’s captain Nikhil Khoda and Zoya are always at loggerheads. The former doesn’t believe in luck and relies on performance. Zoya keeps clashing with the Indian skipper, and what follows is a love-hate relationship.
Sonam Kapoor will be playing the role of Zoya while Dulquer Salmaan essyas captain Nikhil Khoda’s role in the movie. Reportedly, Dulquer is planning to take up basic circket coaching prior to the commencement of shoot. Abhishek Sharma, who has helmed movies like The Shaukeens and Tere Bin Laden, will be directing this movie.
Fox Star Studios and Adlabs Films are jointly funding the movie which is scheduled as an April release, next year.
