The Zoya Factor, starring Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, may have pulled off one of the most interesting casting coups in recent times. The actress’ real life uncle, Sanjay Kapoor, has been roped in to play her on-screen father and we are truly excited to see this Jodi for the first time. Talking about the same, Sanjay Kapoor said, “I received a call from the producer when I was in New York. Later, director Abhishek Sharma called me up to give me a gist of the story and discuss my part.”
The actor even stated, “Besides Mubarakan (which featured his brother Anil Kapoor and nephew Arjun Kapoor), I haven’t worked with my family in any film. So, it’s an exciting opportunity for me to act alongside Sonam. We have started the reading sessions and I can’t wait to commence the shoot. We are a close-knit khandaan and Sonam has grown up in front of my eyes. She is like my daughter, and there’s nothing better than working with your own family.”
It is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Anuja Chauhan and is all set to release on the 5th of April, 2019!
