"Now, with all the love and appreciation that the film is getting, it is up to my masterful director and his genius mind to tell us whether or not he is seeing this happening. I can assure you that whenever he gives us the green signal, Pari and I will be on to shoot," Arjun told the tabloid.
He further expressed his gratitude to Dibakar Banerjee for casting him in the role of Pinky Dahiya, a corrupt Haryanvi cop and said, "Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar was an extremely satiating experience for me as an actor. It really took me to places that I didn't imagine going and all the appreciation I'm getting is because Dibakar saw me as Pinky Dahiya. I'm overwhelmed because I know how much Dibakar told me to believe in myself and submit to his process."
