The wait is finally nearing an end as the much-awaited trailer of Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salman starrer The Zoya Factor will soon be launched. Sharing the news on her social media, Sonam sent fans doubling down with laughter as she shared the typically superstitious “Zoya Kavach” with Pankaj Dheer pitching it as if in a teleshopping ad.
The video shows Sonam’s only look shared so far – with her donning a blue Kanjivaram saree with golden border, wearing heavy gold jewellery, teamed with a pair of white running shoes, holding a cricket bat in one hand, a helmet in the other and standing in the backdrop of a huge pink lotus that sparked out roses, wickets, hearts and bats. Framed to look like Goddess of luck, Pankaj elaborates on the features of the Zoya Kavach and guarantees cashback if proved otherwise. The hilarious video was captioned, “The Zoya Kavach is here exuding good luck rays at the speed of 600mbps. Book this kavach NOW! You’ll see it work in mysterious ways. Trailer out on August 27. #TheZoyaFactor @dqsalmaan #AbhishekSharma @pooja__shetty @aartishetty @foxstarhindi @ad_labsfilms (sic).”
Directed by Abhishek Sharma, The Zoya Factor is a film based on writer Anuja Chauhan’s book of the same name. The story is about a girl who is considered lucky for the Indian cricket team. It has Sonam playing the role of an advertising professional who is considered lucky for the Indian Cricket Team in the 2010 Cricket World Cup.
