rjun Kapoor turns gharelu again – If in Ki & Ka, Arjun Kapoor played a house husband to the career-minded Kareena Kapoor Khan, in his forthcoming film, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, the actor has taken his homekeeping skills a notch ahead. In the Dibakar Banerjee directorial, Arjun, who plays a cop, cooks a desi meal for his co-star Parineeti Chopra when they get trapped in a life-threatening situation.
Parineeti’s character doesn’t know how to cook or clean, so Arjun has to step in. “It is an endearing scene that happens at the moment of extreme crisis in their lives,” says a source adding that Arjun is a pro-chef now and can even make a perfect roti.
“Dibakar wanted him to look convincing as a cook. He was clear that the actor should know how to knead the dough and make round rotis as his character had to prepare food under challenging circumstances. Arjun is good at making some dishes but this time he had to make dal, sabzi, and roti –— a typical, daily meal of North Indians. Parineeti was a huge help as she is a fantastic cook herself,” says the source.
Arjun says that Parineeti was jealous that after this film he would find a girl in real life, thanks to him taking care of the actress! “But the truth is that I can’t even take care of myself,” he chuckles.
