The movie titled ‘Noor’ is a humor-crime-thriller, directed by advertising filmmaker Sunhil Sippy. Sonakshi Sinha is set to take on the character of the protagonist.
“While the book – a coming-of-age story of a journalist named Ayesha Khan — is set in Karachi, Noor will be based in Mumbai and has the eponymous Noor Roy Chaudhary, a 20-something journalist, at its center,” informs a source close to the development.
“It’s a beautiful story that follows Noor as she navigates relationships, career, aspirations, life choices, infatuations and body image issues. Every girl will relate to her,” adds the source.
Casting for the supporting performers is underway while Sonakshi continues to be roped in as the lead.
“The entire movie will be shot in one schedule and is expected to be wrapped up by August,” said the source
“I think it’s very exciting to have your book adapted into a film, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how it’ll be set in India and how the adaptation works,” shared Imtiaz with the media last year.
