Now, Noor opening day collections were significantly lower than her last two films. however, there are no such Big Budgeted Bollywood movie releases, We can expect decent collections on weekend.
Speaking about her role in the film, Sonakshi told, “The character of Noor is the most relatable character I’ve ever done on screen in my entire career.”
“See, I am the kind of actor who can only work when the camera is rolling. I cannot go into prep mode or practice method acting. So I had to talk to the director, understand his vision for my character and once I get it, I portray it to the best of my ability. The way she behaves, reacts, struggles… It is all so real that every one of us has gone through it at some point in time in our lives.”
