Arjun Kapoor is playing a Haryanvi cop in the film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, while Parineeti’s role has been kept under wraps.

Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra will begin shooting for Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar in Delhi this Tuesday. The film goes on the floors on November 7 at Mahipalpur. The film is being directed by Dibakar Banerjee.

Arjun Kapoor, for whom this is his 10th acting venture, says, “Incidentally, I have shot six out of [my] nine films in Delhi. And for my 10th, I’m again heading back to the city that has given me so much love. I’m thrilled to explore the city through Dibakar’s eyes and I can tell you that you all will see a very different Delhi from what you’ve seen before.”

Parineeti Chopra, too, is excited about the shoot. She says, “Delhi holds a very special place in my heart. I consider Delhi to be my home, too. It has always showered me with love whenever I have travelled to the capital for promotions or otherwise. Arjun and I start shooting in Delhi and Gurgaon for Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. The film will bring out a side to Delhi that has been quite unexplored in films before. I’m excited to experience Delhi like never before and explore it in this entertaining and gritty Dibakar Banerjee film.”

Director Dibakar Banerjee, meanwhile, has been prepping intensely with both actors. While Arjun will live in an apartment in a middle-class locality of New Delhi to get into his character, which is of a Haryanvi cop. Parineeti’s role has been kept under wraps, building a lot of intrigue around the film.

The film brings back the much-loved Ishaqzaade pair on-screen in completely different avatars.
