The Zoya Factor: Sonam Kapoor Plays Lady Luck for Indian Cricket Team

Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan’s latest film The Zoya Factor, the trailer of which dropped today, has several LOL moments along with some quirky scenes.

The film is based on Anuja Chauhan’s 2008 novel of the same name. 

Kapoor plays Zoya, whose father – played by the actress’ real-life uncle Sanjay Kapoor – feels that she is the good luck charm of the Indian cricket team.

Why? Because she was born on the day when India won the historic Cricket World Cup on 25th June 1983.

Zoya grows up believing that she’s lucky for Indian cricket but she knows that she has a terrible fate outside the realm of the game.

She gets hired by Robin Rawal (Angad Bedi), a senior Indian cricket player, as the team’s ‘lucky charm’ after the team fails to get lucky on the pitch for over a year.

Soon, Zoya is deified and worshipped as a goddess in the country which lives and breathes cricket.

Dulquer Salmaan plays the captain of the Indian cricket team Nikhil Khoda and though he initially believes in Robin’s ‘The Zoya Factor’ theory, Nikhil is convinced that luck will only take the team so far.

Nikhil and Zoya are in love but one failure almost leads to their break up.

Sonam took to Twitter to announce the trailer release:

“The lucky mascot of 1.2 billion people is ready to spread some luck. Share #TheZoyaFactorTrailer with 20 people & get instant good luck”, said the tweet.

Besides the Ek Ladki actor and Dulquer Salman, the film also stars Sanjay Kapoor and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles.

The film is directed by Abhishek Sharma of Tere Bin Laden and Parmanu fame presented by Fox Star Studios.

An Ad-Labs Films Limited and Fox Star Studios Production. Produced by Fox Star Studios, Pooja Shetty and Aarti Shetty.

Releasing worldwide on 20th September.
