Although Parineeti and her cousin Priyanka Chopra have their releases together this Friday, Parineeti has asked Priyanka to watch her film. Says Parineeti, "I've asked Priyanka to watch my film Shuddh Desi Romance and she asked when am I watching her film, Zanjeer. We are both so busy with our

own commitments. We need to find time for one another's film. But she 's definitely watching my film."
Talking about the film, Parineeti says, "I had a ball shooting Shuddh Desi Romance in Jaipur. We had a huge star like Mr. Rishi Kapoor in our cast. There were huge crowds gawking. So shooting became like a live stage performance with spectators staring at us. But Maneesh Sharma was very clear that he wanted to shoot on location. It was great fun shooting with Rishi Sir, Sushant and Vaani Kapoor."
Parineeti admits that she was nervous about working with Rishi Kapoor. "But when he came on location we forgot who he was. He just became the character. He is too spontaneous. And since I too don't decide beforehand what I am going to do in my shots, it was wonderful sharing camera space working with him."
She felt no sense of rivalry with her co-star Vaani Kapoor. "Our generation is too chilled out. I am friendly with all my co-stars Sushant, Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vaani Kapoor... By the way, I managed Ranveer's career when he did Band Baaja Baaraat. So my rapport with him is very different."
Fingers crossed, Parineeti says, "I just hope Shuddh Desi Romance does well. This is a time for me to be a little nervous. Not too nervous, though. I am at a stage in my life and career when I can afford to be fearless. I am a fearless person."
