T-Series and Vikram Malhotra’s Abundantia Entertainment is coming together to make Pakistani journalist Saba Imtiaz’s book ‘Karachi, You’re Killing Me!’ into a feature film! Want to know whom they’ve cast as Noor Roy Chaudhary, the protagonist in the book? Sonakshi Sinha!
Apart from Lootera, Sonakshi has hardly ever been seen on screen with a significant role. She has either been the damsel in distress or the pretty, bubbly girl prancing around the film’s hero, making him look like an irresistible macho. However, Sonakshi is clearly trying to change that.
Just like the book, ‘Noor’ will be based in Mumbai. The film will show Sonakshi’s (Noor) journey through her 20-something life – her aspirations, insecurities, relationships and the dilemmas she faces as she comes of age. Sona said, “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.” The book, that became a rage right upon its release, is said to be a fusion of the Bridget Jones’s Diary and The Diary Of A Social Butterfly. From male driven films and miniscule roles Sonakshi has finally progressed to a female centric film. Now, it’s left to see if she keeps up with it!
What’s more? We hear Kanan Gill, a front bencher in India’s comedy scene, will be seen in a significant role opposite Sonakshi in the film! If that happens we will hit the theatre just to see how the pairing works! We don’t quite hate the idea of Sona and Kanan together, but it is a risk that could take the film to either extremes. Noor’s filming begins in July!
