Dulquer Salmaan, who has prominently worked in Malayalam movies only will have a great opportunity to make an impact with a high profile project like this.

Earlier, certain reports had surfaced that Dulquer Salmaan have given the nod for his second venture in Bollywood and the actor would team up with Sonam Kapoor in the upcoming film Zoya Factor.

ZOYA FACTOR will release on on 5th April 2019. The film narrates the tale of a Rajput girl who meets the Indian cricket team as part of her job and ends up becoming the lucky charm for the team.

Besides Karwaan, Dulquer is doing Mahanati, based on yesteryear idol Gemini Ganeshan's life, and Kannum Kannum Kollayadithaal in Tamil. The movie is said to be based on a book by the same name by Anuja Chauhan.

Sonam Kapoor unveils the first poster and release date of her first outing with south sensation Dulquer Salmaan on social media.

Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, the film's director, Abhishek said, "Cricket woven into a rom-com and touching on superstition and luck, it's an incredible book for a screen adaptation". Director Abhishek Sharma will start shooting in August. "Directed by #AbhishekSharma, co-starring @dulQuer @foxstarhindi #AdlabsFilms". The first look poster has both the actors holding a book which is titled The Zoya factor. "I knew immediately that this was the boy we were looking for". While Dulquer's character hails from North originally, the film will portray him as a South Indian guy with remarkable Hindi speaking skills.

Abhishek Sharma, Director, "Cricket woven into a rom-com and touching on superstition and luck, it's an unbelievable book for a screen adaptation". "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. He added that the additional dialogues are being written by Anuja herself. Eventually, Zoya falls for skipper Nikhil Khoda who doesn't believe in luck and superstitions.
