The “Ishaqzaade” duo Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor are coming back together to tell us a new romantic tale in Dibaker Banerjee’s next, a crime drama set in the country’s Northern heartland. Kapoor will be seen playing a Haryanvi cop in the film while it isn’t yet clear what Parineeti’s role is.
And the film gets it’s title as “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar”.
The film is a story of a man and a woman who represent two completely different Indias. This story could happen to any of us in contemporary India. But it happens to Sandeep and Pinky. Two unlikely protagonists in one film are unimaginable. They are united in one thing only— their mistrust, suspicion, and hate for each other.
Director Dibakar Banerjee said, “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.”
The film will be produced by Yash Raj Films, the banner that launched both, Arjun and Parineeti.

Arjun Kapoor said, “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 a name synonymous with being the torchbearer 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.”
Parineeti Chopra added, “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 soo ready to bite my teeth into this character and give the audience something intense!”
