In 2011, when Parineeti Chopra made her debut with the film ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’, and followed it up with films like ‘Ishaqzaade’ and ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, few would have imagined the cute, bubbly girl in an intense role as Mira Kapoor in ‘The Girl On The Train’, or that she would one day transform into ace shuttler Saina Nehwal in the biopic ‘Saina’.
Now, the actress has set the temperature soaring with her sizzling photoshoot.
In an exclusive image shared by celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani, Parineeti bared it all as she posed inside a yellow wagon stationed in the woods.
Speaking about creating her own identity in the entertainment industry, Parineeti told IANS, "When people saw me as a bubbly girl, I wasn't faking it. That is surely a side of me, but I am a little more serious as a person than that people think of me. I think it would not be right to say that I feel liberated now because I never felt imprisoned.”
“I choose to work with my gut feeling when I took a film, I choose to dress in a certain way, appear at certain public events. I am not rebelling; I am just being myself. I am following my heart and my gut feeling, so this is me and I am happy," shared the actress.
On work front, Parineeti is thrilled to feature in director Sandeep Reddy Vanga's next 'Animal' as the film has given her the opportunity to work alongside the likes of Anil Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor.
Reportedly billed as a dark thriller, the film marks Vanga's second Hindi directorial after the massive success of 2019's 'Kabir Singh'.
Chopra, who is scheduled to start the film later this year, said the script of the film is "stunning".
"I've also spent time with the director and I love him as a person. Being on that set will be extremely exciting. I'm grateful and humbled they thought of me for the film. I am happy the director had confidence in me to pull off the role," she added.
'Animal' is slated to be released on Dussehra 2022.
