Parineeti Chopra, is looking forward to something exciting — her next, Jabariya Jodi, with Sidharth Malhotra.
The film is set to release soon and Parineeti, who recently opened up about her breakup, saying that the process has made her mature, was in Pune to promote it.
On a rainy afternoon, she sat down with us for a quick chat about her sister Priyanka Chopra, brother-in-law Nick Jonas, Marathi films and more.
While she admits having a hunger to do Hollywood and regional films like Priyanka, Parineeti says she is happy with the kind of work she is getting in India.
“I would love to go Priyanka’s way, but right now, I am getting amazing work in India and I am doing diverse roles. Like the one in Jabariya Jodi – I’m sure the audience will smile after watching me and Sid,” she says.
On the subject of roles, Parineeti says she would love to act in a Marathi film one day. “I was talking to Sidharth about the Marathi film industry and how amazing it is. I think the industry really stands for quality.
At least four times a year films come out that talk about something new. They are real game-changers. We tend to talk of Bollywood and Bengali cinema a lot, but I think Marathi films are awesome.
Some of the most prolific actors in the country are Marathi actors. Sachin sir (Sachin Khedekar) is one of my favourites.
I would love to do a Marathi film one day. I don’t speak the language at all, but I would love to do it because of the kind of subjects being explored in the industry.”
