WEB DESK: Sonakshi Sinha revealed recently that she will not be playing a Pakistani Journalist in her upcoming movie, 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.”
It was earlier revealed that the Bollywood adaptation of Pakistani bestseller had made a last-minute change in script to base the movie in Mumbai instead of Karachi following a ban on Pakistan-based movie Happy Bhag Jayegi. Sonakshi was set to play the role of a journalist, Noor, based in Karachi.
The book is a bittersweet tale of a single young woman, Noor, who is attached to her profession as a journalist-writer. Directed by debutante Sunhil Sippy, the movie revolves around Noor’s misadventures and love life as she navigates her way through Mumbai.
