Sonakshi to star in big screen adaptation of Pakistani book

Mumbai: Actress Sonakshi Sinha will star as a journalist in the Bollywood adaptation of Pakistani novel, “Karachi, You’re Killing Me!”.

The 2014 comedy crime-thriller novel by journalist-writer Saba Imtiaz, centres around a 20-year-old reporter Ayesha Khan, living in Karachi, and her misadventures and finding a nice lover.

The movie has been titled “Noor”.

Saba took to Twitter to express her happiness over the adaptation and also posted Sonakshi’s various looks from the movie.

“@sonakshisinha is in the adaptation of Karachi, You’re Killing Me! and her journo face raised eyebrow IS ON POINT,” Saba tweeted.

While the first look shows her dressed in a salwar kameez and in the other one, she is sporting a white tee with a cap.

Sonakshi replied to Saba’s tweet, writing, “Thank you @SabaImtiaz! Nothing like the stamp of approval by the author itself!! #Noor.”

The film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar and Vikram Malhotra.
