“Meri Pyari Bindu will always be the most special film”: Ayushmaan Khurrana, Parineeti Chopra gets nostalgic
Bollywood actors Ayushmaan Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra take a walk down the memory lane as their most “special film” completed 3 years on Tuesday. Indeed, the film “Meri Pyari Bindu” did not do well at the box office but, it will always remain memorable for Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra.
Directed by Akshay Roy, “Meri Pyaari Bindu” was a romantic-drama that featured Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles. The film made over Rs 12 crore in India and approximately Rs 5 crore overseas, thus taking the worldwide collections to over Rs 17 crore.
They took a dig at some of their past experiences, one of the pictures being clicked at Kolkata’s St. Xavier’s College. Meri Pyaari Bindu featured Parineeti as Bindu, an aspiring singer while Ayushmann as a struggling Bengali writer Abhimanyu Bubla Roy.
“Abhimanyu Bubla Roy was just like me. He loved old songs, was a compulsive writer and a sucker for nostalgia,” wrote Ayushmann in his post and added: “The box office didn’t pamper this gem but this film will always be special. This was clicked at St Xaviers college in the summers of 2016. We witnessed kaal baisaakhi the next day. It was my first. And I fell in love with Calcutta. Dhonobaad for all the love. Chaar saal ho gaye. #MeriPyaariBindu.”
Ayushmaan also added some poetry through his Instagram to commemorate 3 years of the film.
Parineeti also shared a couple of pictures and videos featuring herself and Ayushmann from the film’s set and wrote: “It’s been 3 years but the climax of this film still gives me heartache. I can’t listen to my own song Maana Ki Hum Yaar Nahi without my stomach doing a flip. If you have ever experienced a broken heart, well then, this film…. MeriPyaariBindu did not get love at the BO but it’s the most special film. Kolkata, the 90s, dost, baarish aur music. Sigh.”
The film marked Ayushmann and Parineeti’s first project together. Meri Pyaari Bindu also starred Rajatabha Dutta, Aparajita Adhya, Prakash Belawadi and June Malia in significant roles.
On the work front, Ayushmaan will next be sharing screen space in Gulabo Sitabo, with Amitabh Bachchan. Parineeti will be seen in her next film ” Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar”
