Arjun Kapoor is one of my closest friends in film industry: Parineeti Chopra

The actress is scheduled to shoot two films back to back with Kapoor — Sandeep Aur Pink Faraar and Namastey Canada.


Parineeti Chopra had a good start in the Hindi film industry but slowed down after facing back-to-back setbacks. With projects like Golmaal Again and Dibakar Banerjee's upcoming directorial Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar in her kitty, the actress says she is in "the most exciting phase" of her career.

Chopra has also been appointed as the first Indian woman Ambassador of the Friend of Australia (FOA) advocacy panel by Tourism Australia.

"I am in the most exciting phase of my career. I have just been appointed as the Friend of Australia and I feel humbled to be given this honour," Chopra told IANS in an email interview.

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Vipul Amrutlal Shah's Namastey Canada have found a spot in the list of anticipated projects as they reunite Arjun and Parineeti after the 2012 hit film Ishaqzaade, in which they shared a crackling chemistry.

"On the movies front, I am in prep work for Sandeep Aur Pink Faraar, which is a physically and mentally challenging project. I am very excited about it as it is an intense movie. After this, I will begin shooting for Namastey Canada, which is a light film. I will be working with Arjun Kapoor in both these movies."

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is about a man and a woman who represent two completely different sides of India — and they are united in their mistrust, suspicion and hate for each other.

Chopra, whose Meri Pyaari Bindu (2017) failed to elicit expected response at the box office this year, says Arjun is a close friend, and she can't wait to begin working with him.

"More than me, Arjun should be happy as he will get to spend almost a year with me since we are shooting for two back-to-back movies. I am very excited and looking forward to both the films as he is one of my closest friends in the film industry. I am happy he is my co-star," she said.

The actress has faced failures with films like Kill Dil (2014), Daawat-e-Ishq (2014) and Shuddh Desi Romance (2013). She received mixed response for her drastic weight loss, with some praising her dedication and with some criticizing her for sending out a negative message.
