Another upcoming movie, being released under the Yash Raj Films banner, is Lafangey Parindey. This action cum romance drama stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The film is set in the streets of Mumbai and tells the story of two very different people who change each others lives.
Synopsis of Lafangey Parindey
Neil portrays the character of One-shot Nandu – a wild and daring street fighter and Deepika plays Pinky Palkar, a courageous and ambitious blind girl who doesn’t let her blindness deter her from striving to achieve something big. Nandu likes to face off his opponents in the ring blind folded while Pinky takes her passion for dancing to the next level by putting on skates. As he teaches her how to see, he also learns the art of love from her. But what must they sacrifice for that? It remains to be seen.
Neil has taken his role as Nandu rather seriously in this film and has shot several daring stunts. According to Neil, “I was covered with welters, wounds and bruises”. Though the film is largely about bike gangs, the actor warns the audience not to mistake it for an action flick as it is in fact a romantic movie.
Directed by Pradeep Sarkar and produced by Aditya Chopra, Lafangey Parindey is set for an August 20 release.
