It appears the faraar (fugitive) within the title of Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar has confirmed to be prophetic. Nearly two years after this Arjun Kapoor-Parineeti Chopra was accomplished, it stays unreleased with no hope of a launch anyplace within the close to future.

The newest blow for the seemingly doomed venture is the Coronavirus which had sabotaged the movie’s most up-to-date launch plan.

In actual fact, for all sensible functions, this crime caper has been shelved, although there isn’t any official announcement to the impact. Lekin Pinky aur Sandeep faraar hain.

Nonetheless, a supply near Yash Raj Movies tells me the producers haven’t any intention of releasing Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. “Why ought to they launch a positive shot loser? Audiences invariably reject delayed tasks. Have a look at what occurred to Ramesh Sippy’s movie. Earlier than we might determine whether or not the movie was titled Shimla Mirch or Shimla Mirchi it was on Netflix.”

There’s a rising feeling that the OTT platform has turn into a dumping floor for delayed/shelved tasks. After Karan Johar dumped his execrable Drive and Viacom 18 slipped Shimla Mirch/Mirchi on Netflix we hear Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar can also go to the digital platform.

Director Dibakar Banerjee appears to have washed his fingers off the Arjun-Parineeti starrer. He’s now busy making a futuristic movie referred to as Freedom that includes Manisha Koirala and Naseeruddin Shah on Netflix.

Freedom, eventually.
