Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor’s next film titled Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar may not release on March 1, the earlier release date that was decided upon. The reason for the delay is because of the release of two other films Sonchiriya and Luka Chuppi on the same date. Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar will be seen in Sonchiriya, whereas Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aryan will be seen in the romantic comedy Lukka Chuppi. Given these two big releases, the makers of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar want a clean release window.
Helmed by Dibakar Banerjee, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is a taut thriller and the makers of the film are now looking for an alternate release date. “It is a fully multiplex film and it is a thriller. It definitely needs a clean release period. Now, two films are releasing on March 1, and both are urban, multiplex films targeting similar theatre-going audience set. It doesn’t make sense to have a three-way clash and YRF is thinking about other release dates for the film. A clean and clear run will benefit the film tremendously and YRF has to look at the release schedule closely to arrive at a decision,” a source close to the development revealed.
Arjun Kapoor made his big Bollywood debut in Ishaqzaade (2012) with Parineeti Chopra and years later, the on-screen couple was seen on the silver screen in Namastey England. The movie tanked massively at the box office. It will be interesting to see if the duo can recreate the magic on the big screen.
