Sharing more about the film, director Abhishek Sharma of Tere Bin Laden fame told Mumbai Mirror, “Cricket woven into a rom-com and touching on superstition and luck, it’s an amazing book for a screen adaptation. The book has many layers, characters and tracks, so it took Neha Rakesh Sharma some time to pen a tight screenplay and Pradhuman Singh to write the dialogues. Now, we’ve gone back to Anuja who’s happy with the script to polish it and work on additional dialogues as nobody knows the characters better than her.”

Zoya Factor revolves around a Rajput girl named Zoya Singh Solanki who meets the Indian Cricket Team through her job as an executive in an advertising agency and ends up becoming a lucky charm for the team in the 2010 Cricket World Cup. In some time, Zoya can’t stop but fall for skipper Nikhil Khoda who doesn’t believe in luck and superstitions.

The filmmaker had stated that he was convinced about casting Dulquer in the role of Indian cricket team captain Nikhil Khoda after watching the trailer of his superhit film OK Kanmani. “I knew immediately that this was the boy we were looking for. In the book, Nikhil is from the North but in our film, he hails from the South but speaks good Hindi,” he said.
