Parineeti Chopra got candid about her sis Priyanka Chopra and the big, bad world of Bollywood
Mumbai: Brimming over with talent and redefining the term ‘fiery’ is Parineeti Chopra, seen in the latest episode of Starry Nights 2. Oh! on Zee Café.
In a never seen before combination, the actor was accompanied by Shivang and Sahaj Chopra, her brothers who revealed secrets not only about each other but their very affable star sister as well.
Parineeti spoke in a fun and delightful manner about being children to their desi dad and Videsi mom. Having grown up in a very diverse upbringing with various cultural influences, she said, “We would all travel to Kenya every summer to meet our grandparents and would travel to different countries. We grew up in a small town, so we had the ‘Adarsh’ and ‘usool’ of small towns but very open-minded.”
Turns out Parineeti never really wanted to act. Like the rest of the world, she does believe that her sister Priyanka Chopra is the original star and is considered the same in the Chopra household.
She said, “If Mimi didi (Priyanka Chopra) had not been successful in the film industry, I wouldn’t have been allowed because the obvious career choice in the family was either to be a doctor, engineer or pilot.”
Parineeti was a big fan of one Khan. During the final segment of the show when asked which Khan she would like to work with, pat came the reply- “Saif”. She said, “I never really watched films, the only films I watched were the ones that had Saif in them. After watching LOC Kargil, I couldn’t sleep for 4 days because Saif dies in the film.”
