In an interview director, Dibakar talked about Parineeti Chopra and said, “Parineeti and I argued endlessly on Sandeep (Pari’s character in the film) – and I learnt a lot. She is a very strong-willed and combative individual who needs her own answers. And I hugely enjoy confrontations on creative so that was the high point of our combined work on SAPF! The patriarchy, objectification, and the muddled woke-but-male gaze of Bollywood have pushed most of our spirited actresses into a gilded box.” He added, “Sandy is trying to unbox herself in the film. So is Parineeti in the film as Sandy. It was physically and mentally brutal, bruising, challenging, exhausting and stretched her to her limits. Her animosity with Arjun’s character channelled all the real anger I think many actresses constantly hide against the relentless patriarchy and mansplaining they encounter. She knows Sandy is the film.“
