One of the most anticipated movies of the year, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, directed by Dibaker Banerjee and starring Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles has been pushed to March 1 2019. This startling decision seems to be followed by some rumors that the movie was not turning out as the makers had intended and was still in editing room. The romantic drama was scheduled to be released on August 3 2018. However, Dibaker has said that the movie feels like his first project in many ways in terms of excitement and the material. He reasoned that they completed the shoot one month late because of the extreme weather conditions at the Ino-Nepal Border.
What’s the movie about?
He said the movie is about two characters who are always clashing with each other, just like the older India and the newer one, and since the country decides its fate in 2019, the release date is perfect for the project.
Another project together
Parineeti and Arjun Kapoor first came together in the romantic drama, Ishqzaade, which made them popular among the audiences. Parineeti also won a special mention award at National Awards for her role. They are also going to appear together in the romantic comedy, Namaste England, and have been shooting for it in UK for sometime now and have shared pics form the sets.
The news for delay is surely shocking for the fans of both actors and the general audiences who were looking forward to the movie. Dibaker is one of the most acclaimed directors in Bollywood, and is known for his gritty dramas. His political thriller, Shanghai was one of the most acclaimed movies of 2012, and collected lost accolades, especially for the leading man Emraan Hashmi. Hopefully, this movie is also going to bring back the acclaim and attention for the two leads, who have been doing more commercial cinema for a while now.
