All those hoping to see Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor in ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ on March 1, will have to wait some more as makers decide to look for an alternative release date.

March 1 is when two other films release -- ‘Sonchiriya’ and ‘Luka Chuppi’. 

 ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ by Yash Raj Films wants a cleaner release window and don’t want three films to come out on the same day. This has started a hunt for a new release date for Arjun and Parineeti starrer. 

The film is helmed by Dibakar Banerjee and is a taut thriller. A source close to the development revealed, “It is a fully multiplex film and it is a thriller. It definitely needs a clean release period. Now, two films are releasing on March 1, and both are urban, multiplex films targeting similar theatre-going audience set. It doesn’t make sense to have a three-way clash and YRF is thinking about other release dates for the film. A clean and clear run will benefit the film tremendously and YRF has to look at the release schedule closely to arrive at a decision.” 

While Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar will be seen in ‘Sonchiriya’, Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aryan will be seen in the romantic comedy ‘Luka Chuppi’.
