Watch the trailer of Sonakshi Sinha's Noor:
During the trailer launch, Sonakshi Sinha said, "Noor is really close to my heart. When the story was narrated to me, the script and the character strongly appealed to me and from the first day of shoot till now, it has been such a fun and amazing movie to be a part of. It feels great to start 2017 with Noor."
Director Sunhil Sippy was all praises for Sonakshi and the rest of the cast and said, "Audiences will see Sonakshi in a completely different avatar. I can say without a doubt that this is her best work."
In 2016, Sonakshi Sinha was seen Akira, directed by A R Murugadoss and Abhinay Deo's Force 2. In Akira she played a confident college student who got into trouble with some rough cops. In the latter she played the role of a tough cop. Sonakshi proved her mettle with Akira and Noor will now enhance her portfolio, which boasts of strong, independent character roles.
Sonakshi earlier told news agency IANS that she'd like to do more films like Akira. She said: "Wonderful roles are being written keeping women in mind. Films are being made with a woman as the protagonist."
With Noor, it seems, Sonakshi is taking a step ahead in that direction. Noor releases on April 21.
