Actor Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra debuted in Bollywood on May 11, 2012 with Yash Raj Films’ Ishaqzaade. Now, Arjun has taken to social media to celebrate the same. The actor posted a clip from Ishaqzaade and wrote a heartfelt post on Instagram. He thanked everyone associated with the film for giving him recognition and love. He further said that the movie will always remain ‘extremely special’ and he will always feel ‘blessed’ for being able to perform the character of Parma in the film.
Tagging YRF, his co-star Parineeti and casting director Shanoo Sharma, Arjun wrote, “Today marks #7YearsOfIshaqzaade & yet it feels just like yesterday when I gave my first shot for the film !!! Makes me emotional reliving the making of Ishaqzaade… I feel I was truly blessed to be a part of this amazing journey… it brought me love, livelihood and respect from the audience and gave me my fans so thank you to all my loving fans aka Arjunzaades !!! This day & this movie shall forever remain extremely special !!! @parineetichopra @yrf @shanoosharmarahihai” (sic)
Ishaqzaade was a hit film and both the actors were appreciated for their performance. It was a romantic story highlighting inter-religion relationship. The chemistry between Zoya and Parma was liked by the audience and so was the story background that involved guns blazing and goons chasing the couple. Actor Gauahar Khan also played an important role in the film. In fact, the dance numbers – Jhalla and Chokhra Jawaan Re, featuring her shaking a leg became instantly popular.
Ishaqzaade was directed by Habib Faisal, who is surprisingly not seen directing any feature film these days. His last directorial was Qaidi Band in the year 2017 but it didn’t perform well at the Box Office. Prior to that, he wrote Shah Rukh Khan starrer FAN for YRF.
