Here’s Why Parineeti Chopra Thinks Arjun Kapoor Is a Fake Punjabi


Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are back together again with Namaste England. The duo made their debut with Ishaqzaade in 2012, and the audience absolutely loved their chemistry. So when The Quint met these two actors while they were promoting Namaste England, we asked them if their chemistry has changed over the past five years. Parineeti confirmed that Arjun definitely smiles more often, but she has realised he is weird when it comes to expressing his emotions.

Arjun Kapoor also talks about the difficult time that he and his family went through earlier this year when Sridevi passed away. He says though has always been very close to his family, this was the first time that outsiders got to see that side of him. He said, “There’s just been so much of stuff that has happened, that you sometimes feel that this all came out to the third person while we were going through it. I am very grateful for people recognising mostly what Anshula did, and I am happy that people see that we genuinely care for Janhvi and Khushi.”

They also react to some viewers’ comments on their Namaste England trailer and Arjun tells us why he is a “fake Punjabi”.

Namaste England, picks up the thread of a love story after the happily ever after, that is after Arjun and Parineeti’s characters tie the knot. Parineeti decides to move to England, and Arjun follows suit—possibly the illegal way—to save his lost love. The film is produced and directed by Vipul Shah.

Namaste England, starring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra is set to release on 18 October. It will be competing for the Dussehra long weekend audience with Ayushmann Khurrana’s Badhaai Ho. Both will release a day earlier than previously scheduled.
