Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha-starrer ‘Noor’ has failed to entice its audience at the first day of its release on Friday. The movie managed to mint an amount of Rs 1.54 crore, as reported by Bollywoodhungama.com. Actress Sonakshi Sinha has played the role of a journalist in the movie. The movie was directed by Sunhil Sippy and the movie is based on a novel written by Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz – Karachi, You’re Killing Me! The movie revolves around the life of a journalist.
The audience will also watch the presence of two other prominent personalities – Popular Comedian Kanan Gill as Saad Sehgal and Sunny Leone. Earlier, the movie was caught into a controversy when Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had asked the movie makers to remove the words ‘Dalit’ and ‘Sex Toy’ from the film. In addition to that, the CBFC had also suggested the movie makers to rename ‘Sex Toy’ with ‘adult site’. Following the censor board statement, Sonakshi Sinha had said,” The censor board really needs to come to a consensus within themselves on what is right in one film… Is not right in another film,” IANS quoted her as saying.
The movie has been making headlines since its trailer was released. In its first phase after the unveiling, it was also dubbed as a ‘women-centric’ film. Countering the comments, Sonakshi had said that “I really want people to stop calling it a ‘female or women-centric’ film. When a male actor does it nobody calls it a male-centric movie. A film is a film, you watch it as that, not based on the gender of the protagonist. These headlines that ‘Sonakshi is doing a female-centric film’, it makes no sense. I am an actor, I am doing a film and that’s it. Gender doesn’t have to come in here,” PTI quoted her as saying.
