"Luck and superstition come into play when you do not find any reason. I don't believe in luck. Somewhere luck is an excuse for failure or when we can't explain certain things," said director of The Zoya Factor Abhishek Sharma in a media interaction.

Abhishek Sharma further added: "At the end of the day, it is all about hard work. If you are extremely successful, hard work has to be the reason and not luck. There are coincidences and opportunities. Fortune favours the brave. Hard work takes you to places. It is wrong to put everything on luck and superstition."

Sharing how superstitious most of the people are, Abhishek Sharma further mentioned: "It will be too critical and unjustified to call India that, the world overall is superstitious. India has a lot of cultures because of which sometimes there is ritual superstition. But it is also the land of Gita which talks about work."

Abhishek Sharma called Sonam Kapoor lucky charm. "In the film, we have presented two things - hard work, and luck and superstition. It is a clash of both of these worlds and towards the end, you will see which side comes out as victorious."

Speaking of her experience working with Dulquer Salmaan, Sonam Kapoor said: "I have always worked well with people from the South. My first successful film which changed my life was Raanjhana and after that, every film I have done has elements like that. So, for The Zoya Factor, I think Dulquer Salman will be very lucky for me."
