Arjun Kapoor with Parineeti Chopra


After being postponed for more than thrice in the past, Yash Raj Films’ much-delayed thriller Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar was expected to hit the silver screen on 1st March, 2019. But if fresh reports are to be believed, the makers are eyeing a solo release date for the movie, and hence it may miss its March 1 release.

Starring Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar was slated to clash with Sonchiraiya and Luka Chuppi on 1st March. To avoid the direct clash with two big films starring popular actors, the makers at YRF are now looking at an alternate release date for the Dibakar Banerjee directorial.

“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,” an industry informer reveals.

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar marks the third collaboration between Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra after Ishaqzaade (2012) and Namastey England (2018).

An official announcement regarding the new release date of the film is awaited.
