Shatrughan Sinha and his wife Poonam Sinha saw Sonakshi's film on Thursday.
Other celebrities, like Akshay Kumar, have also written 'great things' about the film.
However, box office reports have a different story to tell. Film critic Taran Adarsh have said that the film had a slow beginning and has collected only Rs 1.54 crore across 1450 screens on Friday. Taran also mentioned how the film needs to "have a major jump over the weekend" to leave a mark.

Noor is an adaptation of a Karachi, You're Killing Me! by Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz. The film revolves around journalist Noor, the central character, who is bogged down by the petty and day-to-day chores of her life until she lays her hands on a huge investigative story that can change her life. The film also stars Shibani Dandekar and Sunny Leone, who features in a song as herself.

Apart from Noor, Raveena Tandon's Maatr and Aparna Sen's Sonata also released this Friday.
