Bollywood What's Happenin'

Parineeti Chopra speaks about Hasee Toh Phasee!

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.
