Acclaimed filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee says Arjun Kapoor was dying to do Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (SAPF) because he wanted to give his naysayers an appropriate answer. The producer and director of this fringe sitting thriller believes his exemplary work in the film will speak for itself.
Says Dibakar: “I could see immediately when Arjun came to see me about Pinky (his character’s name in SAPF) that he was hungry. Hungry to find new dimensions in your work. Hungry to prove the naysayers wrong. Hungry to eat up all the criticism in Bollytown with his action. I was hungry. “
He adds, “It is the hungry who change things in the end. Arjun has changed for it. The dialect training. The boot camp with the cops. The workshops in Delhi and Haryana. The eighteen hour days. The endless rehearsals and discussions around the script with me and my researchers and my creative team. We saw the change. Everyone will see it on the 19th. “
Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is a rough and nervous tension thriller between Arjun and Parineeti Chopra. It is scheduled for March 19th and is distributed worldwide by Yash Raj Films.
