He is roped in for the film Zoya Factor, an adaptation of the wildly popular 2008 novel called "The Zoya Factor" by Anuja Chauhan.
Dulquer Salmaan also posted about the film.
"Super happy to be a part of this unique story "The Zoya Factor" an adaptation of Anuja Chauhan's bestseller". The movie is slated to release on April 5, 2019. Co-starring Sonam Kapoor, directed by #AbhishekSharma.
Ealier, Sonam Kapoor had bought the rights for "The Zoya Factor" and Chauhan's another novel, "Battle for Bittora".
Sonam, who has always been careful for making her choices regarded the movies she decides to do, has become an acclaimed performer since her ill fated debut in Bollywood.
Interestingly, Abhishek Sharma, the director of the film, went on to confess that he wasn't too convinced with Dulquer playing the lead in the film until he watched Mani Ratnam's OK Kanmani trailer. The film will be a romcom woven with an ample dose of cricket. "The book has many layers, characters and tracks, so it took Neha Rakesh Sharma some time to pen a tight screenplay and Pradhuman Singh to write the dialogues", he tells Mumbai Mirror. The Zoya Factor traces the story of Zoya Solanki, played by Sonam Kapoor, a Rajput girl, who is a client service representative with an advertising agency, who meets the Indian Cricket team as a part of her job and ends up becoming their lucky charm. He was quoted as saying by the tabloid, "I knew immediately that this was the boy we were looking for". He will be first seen in Ronnie Screwvala's movie Karwaan co-starring Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar. Meanwhile, the players learn that Zoya was born at the moment the Indian team won its first World Cup in 1983. Eventually, Zoya falls for skipper Nikhil Khoda who doesn't believe in luck and superstitions.
