Does 'Karwaan's Dulquer Salmaan Play Virat Kohli In Sonam Kapoor's 'The Zoya Factor'?

Did you know that Fawad Khan was considered for the role earlier?

Now that Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salman’s Hindi debut in Karwaan is out of  the way, it  is time  for  the actor  to plunge into his sophomore stint in Bollywood. Dulquer now  starts prepping  for  the big-screen adaptation  of Anuja Chauhan’s  The Zoya Factor which is the film’s leading lady Sonam Kapoor’s home production. Abhishek Sharma, fresh on  the heels of  his Parmanu success (starring John Abraham) will direct the  film.

The  project has been in the pipeline for  a decade  now.The  male lead  was  originally offered  to Fawad Khan. But as they say God proposes, the Government disposes. Apparently, Dulquer plays a character based on Virat Kohli. No, Sonam doesn’t play Anushka Sharma.

Both Sonam and Dulquer will now take time off for some workshops.Dulquer who  plays cricket would still have to work on looking like the captain of  the Indian team. “It’s like  when you  play a singer. Being a bathroom singer is not enough,” explains Dulquer. Sonam  too is very excited  about the  film. “I have a  choc-a-block year ahead. I’m about to complete Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga with my Dad (Anil  Kpaoor as co-star).Then I go into The Zoya Factor with Dulquer. I am looking forward to working with  him. He is  so  talented and such an amiable guy.”
