The shoot of Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer SANDEEP AUR PINKY FARAAR is going in full swing.
While we have often seen filmmakers shooting on India-Pak border, but we have seldom come across filmmakers opting to shoot at other locales which is also not a likely place for film shooting. It is being said that SANDEEP AUR PINKY FARAAR becomes the only film ever to shoot at Indo-Nepal border!
Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are currently undergoing the most challenging shooting schedule of their career. Dibakar Banerjee has taken the lead actors of his directorial, SANDEEP AUR PINKY FARAAR, to shoot at the international border of India and Nepal that is constantly under radar for illegal immigration.
“Dibakar is filming extremely intense and gritty portions of the film at the Indo-Nepal border. The portions will show the tension between Arjun and Parineeti’s character. These are crucial and defining moments of the film. The area where the two are shooting is exactly at the border and is constantly under alert for illegal immigration and smuggling. People use an inflated rubber tube as a flotation device on the Kali river at the border and make this risky crossing in the thick of a wintry night. So, shooting has been quite difficult. Local authorities have been of tremendous help providing the crew with assistance and necessary security,” informs a source.
This new information builds more intrigue for this thriller! What are Arjun and Parineeti exactly shooting at this risky area? What does it have to do with this film’s plot? Knowing Dibakar, is he exploring smuggling with the two lead characters of the film? Guess we won’t know these details anytime soon.
Meanwhile, the shooting schedules of Yash Raj Films’ SANDEEP AUR PINKY FARAAR have been an adventure in many ways. The film’s crew was previously shooting in an Uttarakhand village, Jhulaghat, which will soon be immersed underwater because of the construction of a dam.
Dibakar’s film will end up being the only film to have a visual record of this quaint town that will be first evacuated and then submerged underwater. The entertaining thriller, SANDEEP AUR PINKY FARAAR, is set to release on August 3, 2018.
Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are reuniting after more than five years. They were last seen together in ISHAQZAADE.
