Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor, who was last seen in the R Balki directed film ‘Pad Man’ (2018), is coming up with a new film with Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salmaan. Titled ‘The Zoya Factor’, the movie is based on a popular novel of the same name, written by celebrated author Anuja Chauhan. On Tuesday morning, the team unveiled the first poster of the movie along with sharing the release date. Helmed by Abhishek Sharma, ‘The Zoya Factor’ will hit the silver screen on April 5, 2019.
Sonam shared the poster on her Twitter handle and captioned it as, “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.”
‘The Zoya Factor’ will mark the second outing of South star Dulquer Salmaan in Bollywood. His debut Hindi film ‘Karwaan’ is scheduled to release on 1st June 2018.
Unable to contain his excitement over his second Bollywood flick, Dulquer tweeted along with the poster, “Now this one is really special for me! Introducing #ZoyaFactor a movie based on Anuja Chauhan’s bestseller. Releasing on April 5, 2019! Co-starring @sonamakapoor, directed by #AbhishekSharma. #AdlabsFilms @foxstarhindi.” Karwan, featuring Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar, marks his Bollywood debut and is likely to release later this year.
The fresh pairing of Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan surely looks intriguing. So, it will be really interesting to see if the audience accepts them with open arms when their movie arrives in theatres on April 5, 2019.
Before ‘The Zoya Factor’ enters cinemas on 5th April 2019, Sonam will be seen in Shashanka Ghosh’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’. Also featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Sumeet Vyas, the movie is being produced by her sister, Rhea Kapoor. She will follow ‘Veere Di Wedding’ up with Shelly Chopra’s directorial debut ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which also stars her father Anil Kapoor. Dulquer, on the other hand, is currently busy with the upcoming biopic on Savitri, titled ‘Mahanati’.
