Sonakshi Sinha is set to star in the Bollywood adaptation of Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz’s bestselling novel Karachi You’re Killing Me.
The film titled Noor is a comedy-crime-thriller, directed by ad filmmaker Sunhil Sippy.
“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 centre,” a close source was quoted as saying, reports Mumbai Mirror.
“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,” added the source.
While Sonakshi has been roped in as the lead, casting for the supporting actors is still underway.
Noor is slated to go on floors in July. “The entire movie will be shot in one schedule and is expected to be wrapped up by August,” said the source.
An official spokesperson for T-Series confirmed the news.
