1)Chorri Badi Dramaqueen hai – Nah! You got it wrong. Our pyaari pari isn’t the queen of tantrums; in-fact she is quite far from it. We are talking about her spontaneous and instinctual acting skills that have breathed freshness in her roles. Whether it was the feisty Delhi girl Dimple Chadha in Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl or the eccentric Meeta in Hasee toh Phasee, her approach to acting is a far cry from the typical glam doll roles often taken up by other Bollywood’s leading ladies.
2) Speaks her mind- She has come out in open to scrutinize the fashion police for its unecessary assessments of celebs physique and dressing. The woman isn’t afraid to counter harassing questions of journalists. On two instances Parineeti chastised ignorant journalists who asked her appalling questions on menstruation and sex. The feisty actress had lashed out at the journalist at an event of Shuddh Desi Romance for passing a sexist comment against woman. Yet, sometimes the lady has been caught in a foot in the mouth situation; like recently when she proclaimed herself as not a feminist but a supporter of gender equality. Her unclear stance on feminism was rather disappointing. Nevertheless, her outspokenness assures us that the lady aint bowing down from her beliefs just to fit in! Brownie point for that!
3) Food-o-holic- We are tired of celebrities dishing out their fitness charts like they are hit films. We want a celebrity who like most of us loves to gorge food and resists exercise. Parineeti’s love for everything sinful from butter-chicken to street food makes us feel less guilty of our ghee laden diets and exalts her likability amongst the aam junta. Although the actress has succumbed to industry’s pressure of a thin fit body with her recent avatar, but we are hopeful that the dormant foodie will rise again to make us fall in love with our curves.
4) We are a family- We love how the Chopra clan has stuck together in this storm that Bollywood is. Where long friendships and relations fail, cousins Parineeti and Priyanka sticking up for each other, supporting, cheering and even defending each others’ stances is endearing. Remember when during the annual colors screen awards Parineeti was cheering for her Mimi didi? Sooraj Barjatiya should take notice of the Hum saath saath hai moments of the Chopra clan.
5) Beauty with brains- Parineeti isn’t all about acting dancing and glamour. Her credentials go much beyond the realms of Bollywood. Parineeti was all India toper in XII standard board exams. She has triple honor from the Manchester Business School in business, finance and economics. She also is a trained singer in Hindustani music and has B.A. Hons degree in music to support that claim! Talk about versatility huh!
