If you get into the depth of things, I have only have two real passions: Cricket and Dulquer Salmaan. They are both exciting and I can watch them all day.
Hence, The Zoya Factor seems like a really, really promising movie to me.
If you have watched the ‘match awaited’ trailer (here, if you haven’t), you know that Dulquer is playing the role of the captain of the Indian cricket team – Nikhil Khoda.
But before getting into that, let us address the trailer launch itself. He came for the event looking like this.

Ho gaya. Khatam. I am watching the movie. I didn’t even need the trailer after this.
But now that they have released it and I have watched it, I think Dulquer’s casting as a cricketer is the most appealing part of The Zoya Factor, we-are-not-having-any-discussion-about-that-sorry-please-go.
Dulquer as Nikhil Khoda and Angad Bedi as the other hot cricketer who is also into Zoya are EXACTLY what my wet dreams are made of brb as I count days to this movie 😭😭💓💓— Purabi (@dearotica) August 29, 2019
Nikhil Khoda is probably my most favourite fictional character. @dulQuer fits perfectly as Nikhil and he looks so hot! I am always sceptical about a book turning into a film more so if the book is your fav. But still I'll watch it for Nikhil Khoda! ♥️😍 https://t.co/43aYHsClCI— Arunima (@TheFirstRays_A) August 29, 2019
How can one man look this hot? The Zoya Factor, all only for Dulquer Salmaan! Phew! Meri death ho gayi trailer dekh ke.— vivek tejuja 🌈 (@vivekisms) August 29, 2019
Like, I don’t mind some ‘fingers through the hair’ or nice net practice shots at all. ‘Nice’ net practice shots meaning:

The makers have understandably played on Dulquer’s strengths, which are good looks, good body, good acting, good looks, good looks, good l…
And they have skillfully combined it with the most attractive of all qualities: Cricketing skills. With the entire nation either idolising or swooning over cricketers, this is the best of both worlds and OH MY GOD.
To add to that, his jersey number is 7 and we all know what that means.
