Earlier we had reported that Sonakshi Sinha would soon be seen essaying the role of a Pakistani journalist in the film Noor, which is based on the novel ‘Karachi You’re Killing Me’. Yesterday we revealed Sonakshi’s two varied looks from the film. Well now the makers of the film have released a video which introduces Sonakshi Sinha’s character in the film.
Talking about the video on Instagram Sonakshi Sinha added, “Heres my Big Birthday Surprise…She’s every girl. She’s #Noor #IAmNoor #Happy #GotMyGlowOn Here’s a peek. Presenting the #NoorFlash. Waiting to hear what you guys think. @noorthefilm @sunhilsippy @abundantiaent @tseries.official”.
Set in Mumbai, the film will capture Noor’s journey, her relationships, career, aspirations, friendships, choices… Her infatuations, her insecurities and her many dilemmas as she comes of age, and develop a fresh perspective on life. Sonakshi who is thrilled about playing a 20-something journalist adds, “I’m excited about playing Noor. I can’t wait to bring this character to life under the vision of Sunhil Sippy. Noor is a bundle of contradictions, she’s every girl, she’s me. And she’s a character everyone will love.”
Further talking about the project director Sunhil Sippy who is excited about working with Sonakshi Sinha on the film, he says, “Sonakshi represents a real girl who struggles with real-life issues. There’s an immense sense of relatability to her because she, as an actress, has the courage to present her vulnerability. I’m equally gung-ho about creating a piece of cinema that weaves a wonderful tapestry of relationships into the real-life contradictory dynamics of Mumbai.”
Talking about jointly producing Noor, Bhushan Kumar, Managing Director (T-Series) says, “Having produced Baby, Airlift and Sarbjit, we are committed to bringing content driven films to our audiences. We believe Noor will connect with today’s audiences and we are delighted to produce it.”
Speaking on the development, Vikram Malhotra, Founder & CEO of Abundantia Entertainment, adds, “Non-conventional and fresh story-telling is the cornerstone of Abundantia’s content strategy. Our first two films, Baby and Airlift, were built on this perspective and have been loved by millions of movie-goers. With Noor, we tell a story that is young, relatable and very slice-of-life yet unique in its own way. I’m delighted that Sunhil Sippy is helming this tale and that T-series is partnering with us once again.”
As for the film itself, Noor, is produced by T- Series and Abundantia Entertainment and is directed by ad filmmaker Sunhil Sippy. Slated to go on floor this month, Noor will apparently be shot in one long schedule and the makers are expected to wrap it up by August.
