After releasing the first look of Arjun Kapoor as a police officer in ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’, Yash Raj Films has now revealed the look of its leading lady, Parineeti Chopra. The actress will be seen in an all-new, never-seen-before avatar of a fierce, ambitious girl from the corporate world in this Dibakar Banerjee directorial.
Although Parineeti is a graduate from the prestigious Manchester Business School (England) and has been a banker before she entered the film industry, it will be the first time that she will be playing a corporate girl in her six years career. “Yes, I’m playing a fiercely ambitious girl from the corporate world. She is the perfect example of how you would describe a girl, who has a single-point-focus on her career. She is based in Delhi and is extremely clear of what she wants from life,” Parineeti said.
Since Dibakar Banerjee is known for presenting his heroines in a unique manner, Parineeti is excited to star in his film which, she claims, will demonstrate her in very challenging and never-seen-before avatar. “I am excited that my character is the heroine of a Dibakar Banerjee film. She will have her quirks; will stand out for her qualities and intentions (smiles). I have never played such a character and I’m extremely excited that Dibakar is presenting me in an avatar that no one has ever seen me in before,” she said.
Talking about working with Arjun Kapoor again after the gap of almost six years, Parineeti said that working with Arjun makes the whole shooting experience easier. “It is an intense film and it requires a lot of concentration, focus and hard work from us. I think if I wasn’t working with a friend like Arjun, I would have had been way more nervous. Arjun has been a friend for so many years now. I really appreciate the kind of comfort level and equal relationship I have had with him.”
Parineeti is currently shooting for this film in Delhi.
