The beautiful and highly talented Parineeti Chopra has been rocking Bollywood since her award winning debut. Her latest release, Hasee Toh Phasee is a romantic comedy directed by Vinil Matthew and co-stars Sidharth Malhotra. Parineeti plays the quirky Meeta in the flick, a different character than we’ve seen her in before. Check out what she had to say about the flick, her role and her co-star!
Q: You have experimented with your look in ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’. It must be very exciting for you?
Parineeti Chopra: Absolutely, there was a great creative team of talented make-up artists behind us and they have worked so hard to make me look stunning in front of the camera. And I can assure you that when you see the film you will get to know a whole world of madness that’s what the film is all about. There is a big surprise for the audience.
Q: How much similarity is there between your real life character and real life character in the film?
Parineeti Chopra:: Almost no similarity. I had to do a lot of acting in ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’. The only thing I could draw upon was the energy I have in my life and what was required of my character in the film. I had to undergo workshops and it took me about 15-20 days to be absolutely ready before going to the set to shoot. It was quite technical to play this role.
Q: You have lost oodles of weight. How did you do that?
Parineeti Chopra:: See, I am losing weight because I have become very busy in life. I have to work so hard that I don’t have time to sit at home and eat a lot of food. That is why I am not getting fat. But yes, now I can see that people are commenting that I look better these days. So I want this to continue, as it’s making me feel so lively!
Q: Share some beauty tips with us?
Parineeti Chopra:: First, sleep well for at least eight hours a day. Drink a lot of water, moisturise your face well, be happy from the inside, eat only home-cooked meals and refrain from anything that could potentially make you unhealthy.
Q: Tell us about your co-star Sidharth Malhotra?
Parineeti Chopra:: In Sid’s case when he smiles, girl’s ‘phas jati hai’, unlike what happens normally that a girl traps a boy with her smile. For Sid it’s just the opposite, even on set. And he just roams around acting modest.
