Bollywood Actor Arjun Kapoor has yet again been slapped by Actress Parineeti Chopra, however, the incident took place in ‘reel life’. The scene will be part of their upcoming film “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.”
Talking about his upcoming movie, Arjun said that it focuses on violence against women.
“Violence against women is taken seriously by someone like me who has grown up in an environment surrounded by women. I firmly believe when you are doing a character you have to step out of being your personal self and believe that you have signed up to play a character because people like that exist in society,” Arjun told IANS.
“Having said that Pinky (his character in the film) does not raise his hand on Sandeep (played by Parineeti Chopra). The physical violence that is there is circumstantial. It is more about helping one another and protecting one another. There is also a feeling of angst and frustration that Sandeep feels towards Pinky, where she literally wants to cry and hit me and at the same time it is just me protecting myself in that sequence,” the “Ishaqzaade” actor added.

Talking about the scene in which he gets slapped by Parineeti, Arjun said, “I have been slapped yet again by Parineeti like I was in ‘Ishaqzaade’ and that trend continues! But it was not pressuring because you have read a script and you have understood the demand of the character and circumstances, and it comes in a moment of emotional chaos in both their lives, so it is not like I am beating her up. I don’t think I would play a character like that.”
Expressing his optimism despite the covid situation, Arjun said, “We must help our theatres and find audiences to come back and enjoy the film-watching experience.”
“Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar” is set to hit the theatres on March 19 this year.
