The film follows a 20-something reporter Noor Choudhary as she navigates through misadventures in her love and work life. While the novel is set in Karachi, the film relocates its protagonist to Mumbai.
Noor also stars Purab Kohli, who was last seen in Akshay Kumar’s Airlift. It is being directed by Sunhil Sippy, who makes his debut in mainstream cinema with this film.
