T-Series and Abunduntia Entertainment are co-producing “Noor,” directed by ace ad-man Sunhil Sippy, who returns to feature filmmaking 16 years after making the disastrous “Snip!” in Hinglish. The film is a Bollywood adaptation of the popular 2014 comedy crime-thriller novel, “Karachi, You’re Killing Me!” written by Pakistani journalist Saba Imtiaz.
Sonakshi Sinha plays the title role of a 20-year-old journalist, Ayesha Khan, living in Karachi. Set in Mumbai, the film will capture Noor’s journey and her relationships, career, aspirations, friendships, choices, infatuations, insecurities and dilemmas as she comes of age.
With “Akira,” the “Ittefaq” remake, “Namastey England” and “Force 2,” the actress surely seems to be going in for a complete and very positive makeover.
PTI adds from Mumbai June 2: Imtiaz took to Twitter to express her happiness over the adaptation and also posted Sinha’s various looks from the movie.
“@sonakshisinha is in the adaptation of Karachi, You’re Killing Me! and her journo face raised eyebrow IS ON POINT,” Imtiaz tweeted.
While the first look shows her dressed in a salwar kameez, in the other one, she is sporting a white tee with a cap.
Sinha replied to Imtiaz’s tweet, writing, “Thank you @SabaImtiaz! Nothing like the stamp of approval by the author itself!! #Noor.”
The film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar and Vikram Malhotra.
