Sonakshi Sinha announced the film's release date in a tweet and said: "She's sunshine mixed with a little hurricane. She's every girl. She's #Noor #IAmNoor." Noor is directed by Sunhil Sippy.
Here's what an excited Sonakshi tweeted along with a new poster from the film:
Noor was earlier scheduled to release on April 7. The film is about Noor's misadventures and about her finding a lover.

Sonakshi was seen in last Friday's Force 2 with john Abraham and Tahir Raj Bhasin. In Force 2, Sonakshi plays the role of a RAW agent named KK and the film she has some pretty impressive action scenes featuring the 29-year-old actress. Sonakshi in an interview to news agency IANS said that the lines of gender divide in Bollywood are fast fading and added that it is a great time for female actors to take risks with new characters and stories. "If there is any time to take risk, it is now with films, filmmaking and characters, because we never know what clicks with the audience. And every time you give them something different, they accept it and lap it up," Sonakshi told IANS.
Before Force 2, Sonakshi Sinha featured in AR Murugadoss' Akira, again an out-and-out action film. "I made a promise to myself that Akira onwards, I only want to do roles that challenge me in one way or another," she told IANS.
