Dulquer Salmaan and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's The Zoya Factor has been in the news since its inception. While we can't contain our excitement to watch this new onscreen pair on the big canvas, we have to wait a little longer as the sports drama has been postponed by the makers. The film, which was originally scheduled to hit the screens on June 14 will now release on September 20. Lead actress Sonam Kapoor shared this news on her social media accounts, where she posted the new poster of the lead stars twinning in denim shirts and captioned it, "We're back after the strategic timeout ? Catch #TheZoyaFactor in cinemas on 20th September, 2019. Starring @DQSalmaan, directed by #AbhishekSharma. @foxstarhindi".
The movie is the adaptation of Anuja Chauhan's 2008 novel, The Zoya Factor. It tells the tale of a Rajput girl, Zoya 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.
Talking about her character in The Zoya Factor, Sonam Kapoor recently said, "A lot of girls tend to be like, 'Listen, if I am such a mess, how am I ever going to succeed in life?' But I want to say, it's okay to be a mess. I think that's what I said through Mili in 'Khoobsurat' and that's what I liked about Zoya as well. I like to play girls who are regular and normal, who have regular problems because all of us have them."
There were reports that Dulquer Salmaan might be playing cricket star Virat Kohli in the Soman Kapoor-starrer. When asked about it, Salmaan said: "The book was written a long time back. I don't think it is based on anyone in particular. It is fiction." Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film also stars Angad Bedi, Sanjay Kapoor and Sikander Kher in key roles.
