Arjun Kapoor’s first look from his upcoming film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is out. The actor will play a Haryanvi cop in the Dibakar Banerjee’s directional.
Arjun has spent extensive amounts of time prepping for this role under the supervision of his Director Dibakar Banerjee. He interacted with police recruits across all ranks in both the Delhi Police and Haryana police and also visited a training academy to witness all that goes into the making of a heartland cop.
“Playing a cop is traditionally considered cool in Hindi films. But in a Dibakar Banerjee film, a cop is presented as realistic and yet, unique as a person. Its that dichotomy of blending yet and still standing out that makes this role all the more exciting. Dibakar is very specific about the look of his characters. We worked on it for a long time before he decided that this is the look he wants. From my moustache, to my hair cut, to the freckles on my face to make my character look like a cop and yet blend with his environment reflects just how Dibakar has imagined him and his world to be. It will be a gritty entertainer and I’m looking forward to the first day of shoot.” said Arjun.
Check out the first look.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar co-stars Parineeti Chopra. The film is set to release on August 3, 2018.
