Based on Pakistani writer Saba Imtiaz’s 2014 novel, Karachi You’re Killing Me, Sonakshi Sinha starrer Noor is now going to have Sunny Leone in an extended cameo.
A comedy-crime film, Noor revolves around the adventures of a journalist in Mumbai (even though the book is based in Karachi), and also stars comedian Kanan Gill and Shibani Dandekar. Mumbai Mirror reports that Sunny Leone will be seen playing a Bollywood star.
The film is producer by Vikram Malhotra and Bhushan Kumar, and Malhotra confirms this news: “Yes, Sunny is a part of our movie and appears in key scenes. It’s a role which only Sunny could play. You’ll realise when you watch the movie. Casting her was our director’s idea.”
The novel centers around a 20-year-old reporter Ayesha Khan, living in Karachi, and her misadventures and finding a nice lover. Noor, however, will be set in Mumbai with different cultural references.
“I’m excited about playing Noor. I can’t wait to bring this character to life under the vision of Sunhil Sippy. Noor is a bundle of contradictions, she’s every girl, she’s me. And she’s a character everyone will love,” said Sonakshi, to IANS.
When Sunny Leone was asked about her cameo, she didn’t reveal much, but only extending her best wishes to the cast and crew.
