While the film is yet to go on floors, the lead actors have done a photoshoot for it that will leave movie buffs across the country excited. Dulquer Salmaan, the hit churning machine from Kerala, will set his foot in Bollywood with Ronnie Screwala’s Karwaan, which also stars Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar.
Zoya Factor is about a Rajput girl named Zoya Singh 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. Eventually, Zoya falls for skipper Nikhil Khoda who doesn’t believe in luck and superstitions.
The filmmaker also mentioned how he was convinced about casting Dulquer in the role of Indian cricket team captain Nikhil Khoda after watching the trailer of his superhit film OK Kanmani. “I knew immediately that this was the boy we were looking for. In the book, Nikhil is from the North but in our film, he hails from the South but speaks good Hindi,” he said.
