Apparently, Yash Raj Films and Maneesh Sharma wanted him as the male lead but Arjun Kapoor refused Meri Pyaari Bindu!
If you remember, Arjun Kapoor made his debut with Ishaqzaade opposite Parineeti Chopra in 2012 and it turned out to be a worldwide hit. He had the chance to work again with his first ever co-star Parineeti but Arjun Kapoor refused Meri Pyaari Bindu.
The reason why Arjun turned down the movie is that he wanted to do something ‘ a little more exciting’ with Parineeti Chopra, not a film set against the backdrop of old Hindi songs and cassettes (the basic story of Meri Pyaari Bindu).
According to a source of SpotBoye, “Arjun heard the narration but wasn’t too excited to play Tamilian Parineeti’s Bengali boyfriend”. This was when Yash Raj Films was not even involved with the movie. But as soon as YRF got associated with the movie, Meri Pyaari Bindu has been making a lot of buzz in Tinsel Town. After Arjun refused to do the film, Ayushmann Khurrana was roped in to play the male lead opposite Parineeti Chopra.
I guess it is safe to say that ‘One man’s loss is another man’s gain’!
Are you excited to see Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra together for the fist time in Meri Pyaari Bindu?
