Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar release postponed to March 1, 2019
Arjun and Parineeti have previously worked together in their debut film Ishaqzaade
Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra-starrer Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, which was due to release in August this year, will now hit the screens on March 1, 2019. The makers wanted ample time between the movie and the actors' other film together, Namaste England.
Rohan Malhotra, Vice President - Distribution at Yash Raj Films, says, "Arjun and Parineeti have Namaste England releasing on Dussehra this year and the makers had announced this date a while back. It would have been unfair for us to request them to shift their film. Also, we wanted to have a gap between these two films as it features the same star cast and given the extremely busy release calendar of this year, we feel March 1 is the best date for our movie to open."
The thriller will see Arjun play the role of a Haryanvi police officer, while Parineeti essays the role of an ambitious girl from the corporate world. Their lives suddenly intertwine.
Director Dibakar Banerjee says, "I feel this is my first film all over again, at least in terms of the excitement with the material."
He said the film's shoot was finished a month late due to the intense weather conditions on the Indo-Nepal border.
"I don't want Sandeep and Pinky to be shortchanged on edit time. YRF agreed with my request and so we are pressing on together to the new date. I'm looking forward to releasing the film in 2019," Banerjee added.
