Sonakshi Sinha says she will not be playing a Pakistani journalist in the film Noor, which is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz's novel Karachi, You're Killing Me.
At the trailer launch of her upcoming film Force 2, the actress was asked about her role in Noor.
She said: "All I can say is that I am not playing a Pakistani journalist in the film. The film is based on a book, which is written by a Pakistani author. The story has been adapted into a Mumbai backdrop."
