Sonam Kapoor and the Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan are all set to share the screen space in Abhishek Sharma’s The Zoya Factor. It is Salmaan’s second Bollywood film after Karwaan. It is based on Anuja Chauhan’s novel which goes by the same name. In the film, Sonam Kapoor will be essaying the role of an executive of an advertising agency while Dulquer will play the captain of Indian cricket team. Sonam as Zoya Solanki will prove to be lucky for the Indian cricket team. The movie was previously slated to release on April 5, 2019.
However, due to unknown reasons, The Zoya Factor has been pushed further to June 14. The official Twitter page of Fox Star shared the news and wrote, “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!"

Sonam Kapoor talked about her role and co-star Dulquer Salmaan in The Zoya Factor to an entertainment portal. She said, “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 will also have Sonam Kapoor’s uncle Sanjay Kapoor playing her father. The film is directed by Abhishek Sharma, who has helmed films like Parmaanu, which had the cash registers ringing last year.
