Sonam Kapoor will play Zoya, the lead in the film.

While in the book, the character hailed from the north, in the movie, he will hail from the south. Abhishek zeroed in on Dulquer when he saw the OK Kanmani trailer. “I knew immediately that this was the boy we were looking for.

While both are at loggerheads, there is an undeniable chemistry the two share. All in all it’s fun romantic ride with cricket involved. A few changes have been made to film’s script.
