Back in 2012, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra positioned themselves as ace actors when they starred in Ishaqzaade. The duo played small-town love birds of different religions and their not-so-soft love won millions of hearts. Since then, Arjun and Pari have been great friends. They often hang-out together with friends and also have a blasting time at B-town parties in each other.
The upcoming big project of Yash Raj Films titled Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is bringing this crazy duo together back on silver screen. Their roles in this film are in stark contrast to what they played in Ishaqzaade but the love-hate chemistry is kinda same. In Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Arjun and Parineeti play a man and a woman who represent completely different faces of India. They bond over mistrust, suspicion and hate for each other.
To ace their role to perfection, film’s director Dibakar Banerjee jas asked Arjun and Pari to prep up for the film at separate timings and not communicate at all before they give their first shot together! Oh yes, that’s the instruction the lead actors have recently received from the director. Let us tell you, Dibakar is quite known for making his actors embrace their characters to perfection before they start with the shoot.
Talking about the same, Dibakar said, “It is essential that Arjun and Parineeti do not come across as friends at the start of the film. They have known each other for years and their personal chemistry needs to be hidden in the beginning. We wanted to achieve this by keeping them away from each other. I’m hoping the two, coming from very different workshops, will surprise the pants off each other on their first day of the shoot.”
“Arjun and Parineeti have a great bond. They were loved in Ishaqzaade and they had sparkling chemistry. In Dibakar’s film, they stumble upon each other and their journey starts off on a very unusual note. Dibakar wanted to keep Arjun and Parineeti away till they meet on the set for the first time,” a source was quoted saying.
“Arjun and Parineeti’s characters hate each other in the film. In fact, from the time Arjun and Parineeti were signed on for Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Dibakar asked them to not even meet socially. They haven’t even been calling each other. There is no form of communication between them at all. And both the actors have been following his vision for the film. It makes a lot of sense as, when they meet again there will be a natural awkwardness which Dibakar wants at the start of the shoot,” the source added.
Well, we wonder if the actors are following this instruction and not talking to each other, as last night only, Parineeti uploaded videos of having gala time with buddies Arjun and Varun.
