NEW DELHI: It’s been a while since Ishaqzaade – five years of mixed fortunes at the box office. Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra will return onscreen for a second time with Dibakar Banerjee’s next film titled Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
The film is a quirky story of a man and a woman who represent two completely different Indias in their attitudes, thinking and approach but what unites them is their mistrust, suspicion and hate for the other. Talking about the movie, director Dibakar Banerjee said, “This feels like my first film, again. I’ve had to unlearn everything I know to tell this story about a man and a woman who can’t stand each other but can’t survive without each other.”
Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar will present Arjun and Parineeti’s onscreen rapport in a dramatic thriller.
The 32-year-old actor said he’s all ready to be faraar with Parineeti and the director. “It feels great to be back home at YRF working with Adi Sir and Parineeti, my most amazing and first ever co- actor. Dibakar Banerjee is a name synonymous with being the torchbearer of evolving new age cinema that engages and entertains. I can’t wait to work under his tutelage and vision. Main Dibakar aur Parineeti ke saath faraar hone ke liye fully tayyar and excited hoon,” said Arjun.
Meanwhile, Parineeti added: “After Ishaqzaade, Arjun and I used to dream about working with Dibakar one day! His films are so different and always make an impact. I am so ready to bite my teeth into this character and give the audience something intense!
Before this, Yash Raj Films and Dibakar Banerjee have collaborated on award winning film Titli, which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival and critically acclaimed Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!.
Well, let’s hope the audience finds their ishq back with Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
