Parineeti Chopra has teamed up with co-star Arjun Kapoor after a span of five years, for a Yash Raj Film production, 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar'. The actors had last worked together for 'Ishaqzaade' and their chemistry was termed magical by critics and fans alike. Opening up about her character and her equation with Arjun, both on-screen and off, Pari said, “Arjun has certainly evolved as one of the bankable actors that there is today, which is a huge achievement. Arjun's understanding of the craft and his eagerness to learn sets him apart. With 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar', we are doing a very intense film together... We are at loggerheads in the movie.”

She said the film director Dibaker Banerjee has always been in her list of “dream directors”. “I have always been really fortunate to work with amazing directors. Dibakar has been on my dream directors' list ever since I took up acting. Working with him has involved elaborate prep and very focused workshops. He has an exquisite eye for nuance and detail. His characters make his movie stand out. I am thoroughly enjoying this process of shooting for the film with him,” she said.

Her character in the movie is that of a fiercely ambitious girl. Pari, however, confessed that she is very different to Pinky, in real life. “I am ambitious, yes, just not fiercely ambitious. When I take up something, I give it my absolute best. I focus on it 100 per cent and try achieving it. I don't like ambition that tries to put down people and talent. I feel there is enough room for everyone to grow.”
