Actor Sonam Kapoor’s next movie, with Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan, ‘The Zoya Factor’ now has a new release date.
The movie was initially supposed to release on April 5, 2019. But the makers have announced the new release date as 14th June.
"She’ll make you go What The Luck ;) Get ready for a zany ride with #TheZoyaFactor on 14th June, 2019! Directed by #AbhishekSharma and starring @sonamakapoor & @dulQuer!" reads official Twitter page of Fox Star Hindi.
The movie ‘The Zoya Factor’ is based on the book of the same name by Anuja Chauhan. The book tells the story of an advertising executive who goes on to become the lucky mascot of the Indian cricket team. While Sonam Kapoor will play the titular role of Zoya, Dulquer Salmaan will be seen playing the role of the captain of the Indian Cricket Team, Nikhil.
Speaking about the film to PTI, Sonam had said, “Everybody thought I should play Zoya, it is a fun part. I wanted to do something light-hearted but everyone wanted me to do drama. After Khubsoorat, I am doing a light-hearted film. Abhishek Sharma (director) is an amazing person. I have started shooting with Dulquer Salmaan.”
Earlier talking about Dulquer, Sonam stated to a portal, "Dulquer is really cute and such a good actor. I have seen his film OK 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."
‘The Zoya Factor’ also stars Sanjay Kapoor as Sonam's father. Angad Bedi too plays a pivotal role in the movie.
The movie is directed by Abhishek Sharma, who called it, "Cricket woven into a rom-com and touching on superstition and luck". Along with Fox Star Studios, the film is co-produced by Pooja Shetty Deora and Aarti Shetty.
