Bollywood actor Kriti Sanon’s sister Nupur Sanon is all set to mark her Bollywood debut with the film ‘Noorani Chehra’ opposite Nawazuddin Siddique. The film, which is touted to be a quirky love story, is directed by Navaniat Singh. The shooting of the film commenced today. Sharing the film’s announcement on her Instagram handle, Nupur wrote, “Fall in love with Noor and Hiba in *Noorani Chehra* #MismatchedCouple of the Year! Shooting begins today.”The comments section was flooded with congratulatory messages. Actor Pulkit Samrat wrote, “All the best!!!!”
“Congratulations nupsu. kill it,” Sushmita Sen’s brother and actor Rajeev Sen wrote.
Nupur had previously starred in the music videos of the hit song ‘Filhall’ and ‘Filhaal 2- Mohabbat’ with superstar Akshay Kumar.
Earlier, talking about acting in films, Nupur said, “Never in my wildest dream did I ever imagine myself as an actor, because as an audience, I always had a perception of how a heroine should look like. I didn’t see myself fitting that image. When I came to Mumbai, I weighed 83 kilos. Only after someone saw me as a heroine (and offered her the film) did the thought trigger within me. I enjoyed the entire prep process as an actor. So, I started taking up workshops and joined acting classes.” Nupur, a trained singer, hopes to bag a role in a film that gives her an opportunity to sing as well. “I have trained in western vocals to be a playback singer. I hope the first film that features me as an actress, I get to sing in it,” she said.
