SAPF: Arjun Kapoor & Parineeti Chopra shared their experience working with Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee

Arjun expressed his statement and shared, “I am still the same actor who does those other films but every film has a different director.”

Arjun Kapoor is an Indian film actor who appears in Hindi films. He is the son of film producers Boney Kapoor and his Ex-Wife Mona Shourie Kapoor. He made his acting debut with the 2012 action romance Ishaqzaade which was a hit.
Arjun recently was seen in the movie ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ which was initially scheduled for theatrical release on 20 March 2020, the film was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India. After being delayed for a year, it was finally released on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video on 19 March 2021. After the release of the movie, Arjun and Parineeti Chopra are continuously applauded for their jaw-dropping performance.
During an interaction with indianexpress.com, Arjun and Parineeti recalled the time back at the making of the film and how Dibakar managed to extract the best out of them. Arjun Kapoor on Wednesday thanked filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee for “all those torturous, tiring, exhausting, mentally consuming days” while filming their recent release “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar”. He says the film gave him “a chance to work with a mind that is unlike anyone else’s”.
After seeing the positive feedback from the audience, Arjun expressed his statement and shared, “I am still the same actor who does those other films but every film has a different director.” Parineeti added that the other directors she works with have very few things to say when it comes to giving directions to an actor. “They’ll say thoda energy up kar do (increase the energy), that’s the maximum they will give you,” she shared. Arjun explained it best when he said, “It felt like children making a play. It never felt like it was going to transpire like this. It was fun, it just paid off.”
Arjun played a cop named Pinky Dahiya in the film, posted a long note about his experience of working in the film. Arjun Kapoor wrote, “Pinky gave me a chance to challenge myself. Pinky gave me a chance to question my understanding of the beliefs prevalent in our country. Pinky gave me a chance to work with a mind that is unlike anyone else’s….” “Thank you #DibakarBanerjee for all those torturous, tiring, exhausting, mentally consuming days, without which there would be no Pinky and no redemption for an actor like me seeking to find new pastures so that I could take my craft to unchartered territories.” “Thank you for not trusting me too much and building this man from scratch. You have built Pinky with me, from within me, from all the hidden parts of me. That is what has made it all so much pure and so, so, so gratifying. Thank you.” (Ended with a joining hands emoticon)

Arjun had an incredible experience working with Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee. He shared that, Dibakar Banerjee spoke to him about ‘his girlfriends, childhood and his issues with emotion’ to extract Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar performance’.
While Parineeti also shared her experience of filming with Dibakar Banerjee and described him as a “chameleon.” “He will direct different actors according to the people they are. With me, we would argue for hours. I have never fought with a director so much,”.
Apart from Parineeti and Arjun, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar has some commendable performances by Neena Gupta, Raghubir Yadav and Jaideep Ahlawat.
