If you recently checked Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s Instagram handle, you would have been as shocked as us to find the name Zoya Solanki on her handle. Even though the fashionista Sonam Kapoor has changed her name on her Instagram handle, we hear that it’s only temporary. Phew! Now, if you are wondering why she might have changed her name just for the time being, then let us tell you that the reason behind this is quite smart. Sonam Kapoor is Zoya Solanki on her gram now and she recently changed it for the promotions of her upcoming film, The Zoya Factor. The film is already creating a lot of buzz and it is the first time that any celebrity has changed their real name to their character’s name on any social media platform. Seems that Sonam is taking her role quite seriously for this one, no?
The film, The Zoya Factor, is based on the bestselling novel of the same name, written by Anuja Chauhan. Sonam Kapoor even changed her Twitter handle to Zoya Singh Solanki and her bio now reads, ‘Lucky Charm of the Indian Cricket Team.’ In the book’s plot, Zoya Solanki meets the Indian Cricket Team captain and eventually ends up being the lucky charm for the team. This clearly explains why Sonam has described herself as a lucky mascot in her Insta and Twitter bio. Considering that her character is working for an advertising agency in the film, and with her latest move to change her name on social media platforms, we can now safely say that she’s learnt a thing or two about advertising in real life too. If you want to see her changed name for her upcoming film’s promotions, here are her Twitter and Instagram handles.
The Zoya Factor stars Sonam Kapoor, Dulquer Salmaan, Angad Bedi, and Sanjay Kapoor and is directed by Abhishek Sharma. In the movie, Sonam will be portraying the role of an advertising agency executive and Dulquer will be playing the captain of the Indian cricket team. Sonam Kapoor was last seen in the film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laaga which had an amazing story with an equally beautiful message. The film is set to hit the theatres on April 5.
