Parineeti Chopra the star of the hit Ishaqzaade and younger cousin of superstar and pop star Priyanka Chopra, has spoken out about her fellow professionals stating that, “For people, we are a bunch of newcomers but we are all friends. Varun, Arjun, Alia, Ranveer, Siddharth and Sushant Singh are all my friends. Each one is doing many endorsements so we don’t see it that way. We have fun and enjoy our work. We do it with a lot of joy.”
But believe it or not, there was a time when Parineeti used to hate the acting industry “Yes, I used to think that the profession was an excuse to wear too much makeup, travel far and wide, and make quick money. Let me be more candid. I thought actors were successful for no reason. And everyone at YRF would tell me what a big dramebaaz I was. Anushka Sharma used to call me a dramebaaz – even Rani Mukerji used to tell me the same thing. Slowly I realised acting was no cakewalk. And I started nursing a strong desire to make a splash in Bollywood.”
Well it certainly seems that the Punjabi kuddi has found her place in Bollywood, as she will be seen in Maneesh Sharma’s upcoming untitled film opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, Karan Johar’s Hasee Toh Phasee opposite SOTY star Sidharth Malhotra and Aditya Chopra’s Kill Dil opposite her LVRB co-star Ranveer Singh.
Let’s see how the Ishaqzaadi will fare at the box office and with the critics!
