Swapping the relationships for reel isn't an unchartered territory in Bollywood. Depicting reel relationship without reflecting the residue of the real displays the actor's dexterity in moulding with the nature of the character.


Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan's The Zoya Factor is currently in the making. The actors are busy shooting for the same. Interestingly, Sonam's real uncle Sanjay Kapoor has been roped in to play her reel father in the film.


Confirming the news, Sanjay Kapoor said to a leading daily, "I received a call from the producer when I was in New York. Later, director Abhishek Sharma called me up to give me a gist of the story and discuss my part. I was waiting for a good film to come my way and this just seems perfect."


Adding further, the actor continued, "Besides Mubarakan (which featured his brother Anil Kapoor and nephew Arjun Kapoor), I haven't worked with my family in any film. So, it's an exciting opportunity for me to act alongside Sonam. We have started the reading sessions and I can't wait to commence the shoot. We are a close-knit khandaan and Sonam has grown up in front of my eyes. She is like my daughter, and there's nothing better than working with your own family."


The Zoya Factor is the screen adaptation of the book of the same name authored by Anuja Chauhan. Dulquer Salmaan will be playing the role of an Indian Skipper and Sonam will feature as an advertising executive in the film, which is helmed by Abhishek Sharma.
