In and as Noor, Sonakshi Sinha takes a voyage from a being a bindaas bubbly girl to the one who is troubled by the humongous work pressure and the one for whom a balance between love life and professional life is nothing but a myth. She is in her twenties and is hopeless at finding a nice guy due to her body weight. But she does find a best friend in Kanan Gill who is taking his first step in Bollywood with the film.
The Sunhil Sippy’s film which reaches theatres this Friday is an adaptation of a successful novel, Karachi, You’re Killing Me! by Saba Imtiaz. From the time the trailer of the movie has surfaced in the theatres and on our television screens, we have been excited to know the story of this zany journalist played by Sonakshi. But before it releases, it seems Bollywood has already given a thumbs up to it.
Excited for the release of the film on April 21, Sonakshi Sinha and the makers of the film welcomed people from the industry at the Yashraj Studios where a special screening of the film was held on Wednesday evening. In attendance were Anushka Sharma, Mira Rajput, Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani among others. Singer-composer Vishal Dadlani who got to watch the film was all praises for Sonakshi as he wrote, “Saw #Noor last night. @sonakshisinha is so good! @shibanidandekar @KananGill & the rest of the cast too! Cinematography is ACE! Go watch it!.” Similar were the thoughts of singer Shekhar Ravjiani as he also took to Twitter to praise the film. “Just watched #noor @sonakshisinha What a performance! Loved it. My best wishes and lots of love,” wrote Shekhar.
The author turned producer Chetan Bhagat wrote, “Saw #Noor. V sweet story about a girl looking for meaning in life. Many will relate. @sonakshisinha does a great job. Congrats to team!” CEO of Balaji Telefilms Tarun Garg also liked the film as he wrote, “How beautiful is @sonakshisinha looking in #Noor .And her performance -effortless, flawless,charming .She’s carved a prime space for herself.”
