Noor is directed by Sunhil Sippy, and is based on Saba Imtiaz's nove Karachi, You're Killing Me!. The film releases on April 21.
The Dabangg actress, who has featured in films like Akira and Lingaa strongly feels against 'female oriented characters'. In a recent interview with The Deccan Chronicle, the actress said, "Firstly, one need to stop categorising characters as 'female oriented' projects. We are all actors, thus any film with a male or female lead - depends on the content of the tale. It's high time we do not specifically differentiate between male and female roles," the actress said.
"This is indeed a great time for all of us as actors. Being able to perform varied roles is what we desire. I always wanted to perform action-oriented roles and I derived immense pleasure from doing them," she added.
Sonakshi is now shooting for Ittefaq that co-stars Siddharth Malhotra.
