Dibakar Banerjee (DNA; July 3, 2017)
Five years after they were paired in Ishaqzaade, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are coming together for a movie. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the film is titled Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
The film is a dramatic thriller. A story of a man and a woman, who are from two completely different Indias. Says an insider, “Two more unlikely protagonists in one film are unimaginable. They are united in one thing only. Their mistrust, suspicion, and hatred for each other.”
This plot is interesting because of the it-could-happen-to-you factor. Director Dibakar Banerjee says, “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.”
Having made their debut in an unusual love story, Arjun and Parineeti now return with another one. Arjun says, “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 one of the torchbearers 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.” Previously, Yash Raj Films and Dibakar Banerjee have collaborated on Titli and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
Parineeti adds, “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 sink my teeth into this character and give the audience something intense!”
