The Zoya Factor, which is Sonam and Dulquer's first collaborative project, is about a girl named Zoya Singh Solanki, who meets the Indian Cricket Team through her job as an executive in an advertising agency and ends up becoming a lucky charm for the team in the 2010 Cricket World Cup. However, Zoya falls for skipper Nikhil Khoda (played by Dulquer Salmaan), who doesn't believe in luck and superstitions.
The Zoya Factor is directed by Abhishek Sharma and it will mark Bollywood debut of Dulquer Salmaan.
