It’s been more than a decade that the film was in the pipeline, earlier Fawad Khan was supposed to play the leading role, but because of the political unrest between India and Pakistan, the leading role will be played by Dulquer Salmaan.

Dulquer will essay the role of Indian Cricket Team captain Nikhil Khoda, whose character is inspired from Virat Kohli and Sonam will be the female lead of the film, but she doesn’t play the role of Anushka Sharma.

The film is inspired from a novel which tells the story of a Rajput girl Zoya Solanki who as a part of her work profile meets Indian cricket captain and later turns out to be lucky for the team.

Zoya Factor is the film from Sonam Kapoor’s home production and will be directed by Abhishek Sharma who is enjoying the success of his film Parmanu released earlier this year.
