It was yesterday when Sonam Kapoor gave a hint that she will be introducing us to the lucky charm of India. Well, we had told you that it was an announcement about her next film The Zoya Factor in which she plays the role of a girl named Zoya Solanki who becomes a lucky charm for the Indian cricket team.

Now, the makers have released the motion poster of the movie. Sonam took to Instagram to share it with her fans. The actress posted, “Who needs Nimbu Mirchi, when you have Zoya Solanki! India’s lucky charm is here to turn tables around for you. #TheZoyaFactor @dqsalmaan #AbhishekSharma @pooja_shetty @aartishetty @foxstarhindi @ad_labsfilms.”

Sonam is seen as a Goddess and has a bat in one hand and a cricket helmet in another hand. Well, we can clearly say that Sonam aka Zoya is the Goddess of cricket.

The Zoya Factor is based on Anuja Chauhan’s 2008 novel with the same name. The film also stars heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan who will be seen playing the character of the Indian Cricket Team captain in the movie. This will be Dulquer’s second Bollywood film. He made his debut last year with Karwaan which also starred Irrfan Khan.

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, The Zoya Factor is produced by Fox Star Studios and it is slated to hit the screens on 20th September 2019. The movie will clash with Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala starrer Prassthanam and Karan Deol starrer Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas.

While talking about her character, Sonam had earlier said, “A lot of girls tend to be like, ‘Listen, if I am such a mess, how am I ever going to succeed in life?’ But I want to say, it’s okay to be a mess. I think that’s what I said through Mili in Khoobsurat and that’s what I liked about Zoya as well. I like to play girls who are regular and normal, who have regular problems because all of us have them.”
