In a media interaction, Parineeti spoke about the film and said, “It’s true that it has been a new experience for me with regards to films but [in real life], I have been a banker before I came [back] to India. So, I am trying to use those (real life) experiences and bring them into my character. At the same time, our (director Dibakar Banerjee and her) endeavor is to present a completely new avatar of mine that hasn’t been seen before, so it is very challenging. In some parts of the film, it is going to be my most restrained performance but in other parts, it will be extremely dramatic too.”

Talking about the character, Parineeti said, “In this film, the north Indian aspect isn’t really underlined in a big way. In my previous films, my characters have belonged to the middle class, who hails from certain small towns (in north India) and that’s why the mannerisms were also in accordance to that. However, this time around, it is completely different. Though the girl is from north India and the film is also set in that part of the country, but the character is very different as she is like any other urban metro girl.”

Presented by Yash Raj Films, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar releases on 3 August 2018.
