Snippets from the episode
Karan: There is so much conjecture about Manish and you, and you have gone on record and said he is your 4am friend. So at 4am do you call him or tap him?
Parineeti – (Laughs) I to go and meet him also ..
Karan – At 4am!! So what is the truth about cats and dogs there?
Parineeti – (Laughs again) No cats and dogs there. I infact find it, for the lack of a better word cheap actually when people..
Parineeti – Not even insinuate! People straight away say that you got the film because you are seeing Manish or you are in a relationship with Manish. For me Manish is like Adi, I respect both of them too much, they have given me my whole life. Even if I can buy a car today it’s because of them, so when you..
Karan – dilute that?
Parineeti – Not even dilute, dilute is such a small word, it’s just cheap, for me it’s just wrong. My respect for him is something else.
Karan – But you can love someone you respect!
Parineeti – Ya ya!! But my feeling for Manish is totally different I cannot explain it.
Karan – So much is been said about Parineeti and you, is there an unnecessary vibe to create that stir because nothing else is happening. There are no other two girls kind of..
Alia – I think that’s what it is! Wherever I go I am asked can two actresses be friends or do you think there is a rivalry, just because I said whatever about styling and everything people have just completely forgotten the fact that I have praised her ample amount before that. So, I messaged her way before the show was out that listen this has happened so please don’t…
Karan – You kept on saying that whenever you went for highway promotions you were being asked about Parineeti.
Alia – Yaa. They kept asking, because when the promos were out they were like rivalry ho gaya hai, you both don’t like each other, what is the problem, this and that!! So we have cleared that out but everywhere I have gone I have been asked all these questions.
Parineeti – Yaa. Same here even in my promotions! Any interview I do it’s all about –is this the new cat fight and do you not get along, how do you take it? What did you say to her? I said listen Alia called me when Student didn’t even release so technically she was not even an actress that time.
Karan – Yaa she called to you how do you cry so well?
Parineeti – Cry so well and how do you speak Hindi so well! And I still remember
Alia – That’s not what I said! I said that atleast teach me how to cry and..
Parineeti – command over Hindi you said
Alia – that command over Hindi I said on the show.
Parineeti – You said that day also, so nicely you spoke!!
Karan – Chalo you all are fighting now.
Karan – So Alia you definitely have a sense of possessives for Varun and Sidharth (Malhotra), that I know for a fact! You feel a bit territorial. So when these boys work with Parineeti how does it make you feel?
Alia – No they are constantly pulling my leg. O Pari is so sexy..O Pari is like this..Pari is like that!! But I know that they, Sorry (to Parineeti) love me more than they love her. And I know that for sure but it’s the same way like Arjun can love Pari more than he loves me! So that’s fine.
Karan – But rumours say that you have made that turn also!!
Parineeti – Even I would like to know this!
Karan – You have managed to get Arjun also do this flip
Parineeti – but I disagree to this.
Alia – You disagree?
Parineeti- No!!! I am not saying anything..
Karan –what is your vibe like with Ranbir?
Alia – I remember the first time I spoke to Ranbir you called him up when Rockstar released and you said here talk to Ranbir tell him how much you love him! And I just spoke so much rubbish, I was just talking non-stop. But later I have hung out with Ranbir and I still think he is really adorable and I still want to marry him.
Karan – (Laughs) You want to marry Ranbir Kapoor?
Alia – Yea!!
Karan – Have you told this to his mother? Is Neetu ji aware of your future plans and more importantly does Katrina know?
Alia – Everybody knows my plan! I have gone on record and said it as you said and I am very open about it except to Ranbir. I don’t tell Ranbir.
