Not playing Pakistani journalist in ‘Noor’: Sonakshi Sinha

Mumbai: Bollywood actress 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.”

The book is a bittersweet tale of a single young woman, Noor, who is attached to her profession as a journalist-writer. Directed by debutant Sunhil Sippy, the movie revolves around Noor’s misadventures and love life as she navigates her way through Mumbai.

The movie, also starring Purab Kohli, Shibani Dandekar and Kanan Gill, is scheduled to hit the big screens on April 7 next year.

Besides that, Sonakshi is continuing her “action queen” avatar in her next film “Force 2” after “Akira”.

Asked if she can be tagged as action queen, Sonakshi said: “You must. I am very fond of action films, which is why even in the past, I’ve been part of a lot of action movies. I enjoy watching this genre. Every time I watched my heroes doing action, I thought of doing this cool stuff.

“I got a chance in ‘Akira’. I couldn’t be more thankful that it has been carried forward to ‘Force 2’. I will work hard to retain my tag of ‘action queen’.”

Directed by Abhinay Deo, “Force 2” features John Abraham and is releasing on November 18.
