Producer and director of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Dibakar Banerjee revealed a hilarious incident where the cast was forced to eat extra parathas due to the film’s lead actress Parineeti Chopra. ‘So, when Raghubir (Yadav) Ji used to speak in a scene where Parineeti had to be angry, Parineeti started laughing every time she would see him. By now we had already done 4-5 takes and we could see that the light was going. Anil Mehta (cinematographer) was looking at me asking what's going on,’ he reveals.
Pari adds, “Do you know how I managed to do the scene? I didn't even look at him in the scene, because I knew if I would look at him, the shooting would not happen. This was because he had got stuck on Paratha and I had got stuck on him. So what I did was that I kept a mark right above his head. I don’t know if anybody caught that so that I don’t look at him and I don’t hear him. Literally, there was no other solution.”
Pari’s co-star and the film’s lead actor, Arjun Kapoor reveals, “Because of Pari and Raghubir Ji, we ended up eating extra Parathas basically just by sitting around. I don't know if Dibakar sir has kept it in the end that Pinky had a fit of suddenly burping while eating but I just did it naturally without even acting because we had eaten so much by the end of it.”
Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, which releases this Friday, is a raw and edgy suspense thriller that pits Arjun Kapoor versus Parineeti Chopra. Arjun plays the role of a Haryanvi cop and Pari plays a corporate woman from New Delhi who's fate gets intertwined on a fateful night. It is being distributed worldwide by Yash Raj Films.
