For a long time, Dibakar Banerjee’s movie Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is waiting for the release. Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar have been delayed few times. Release of the movie has been scheduled on 20th March, 2020. However, it has to be postponed once again as a result of Coronavirus Pandemic.
During a recent interview, Arjun Kapoor has said that Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar may release online. 2 States actor has told “I’m not involved in the selling and buying of any of my films. My producers are more involved with that bit. That is a reality for certain films that might choose that path. I don’t see anything wrong with that.”
Later on, he has added “As an artist, if you look at the purity of it right now, the medium is not important. Getting your material out there is important. And for that, if certain films have to be released on digital, I don’t see anything wrong in it.” Previously, Multiplex Association of India has requested the movie industry to give exclusive theatrical window after the lockdown is being lifted.
Statement from The Multiplex Association of India states, “When this crisis passes, the combination of the pent-up demand and the promise of new movies, we are sure, would boost film business and contribute massively in reviving our industry. The collective, social experience of watching films on the big screen needs to be preserved and it can be done so only with the collective support of all stakeholders.”
