Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer Sandeep aur Pinky Faraar’s release date has been shifted to March 1, 2019, trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced on Thursday. Earlier, the movie was scheduled to be released in August this year. The filmmakers don’t want to spoil the fun of the viewers as the duo will be seen in the film Namaste England, this Dussehra.

Rohan Malhotra, vice president (distribution) at Yash Raj Films said: "Arjun and Parineeti have Namaste England releasing on Dussehra this year and the makers had announced this date a while back. It would have been unfair for us to request them to shift their film."

He added, "Also, we wanted to have a gap between these two films as it features the same star cast and given the extremely busy release calendar of this year, we feel March 1 is the best date for our movie to open."

Director Dibakar Banerjee says the movie brings "two Indias" that clash.

The movie will portray Arjun Kapoor as a Haryanavi police officer while Parineeti will play the role of an ambitious girl from the corporate world and what happens when suddenly their lives entwine.

Banerjee said in a statement: "I feel this is my first film all over again, at least in terms of the excitement with the material. Sandeep and Pinky bring to screen the two Indias that are forever clashing. I want the audience not to lose a second of that."

He said the film’s shoot was finished a month late due to the intense weather conditions on the Indo-Nepal border.

"I don’t want Sandeep and Pinky to be shortchanged on edit time. YRF agreed with my request and so we are pressing on together to the new date. 2019 is when India chooses its future. I’m looking forward to releasing in that year and choose mine," Banerjee added.
