The recent scandal where several Hollywood stars’ nude pictures were leaked online by hackers has enraged celebrities worldwide. Among them is actor Parineeti Chopra, who is disgusted by the controversy and believes that people need to respect the privacy of their favourite personalities.

“I don’t think this even needs to be discussed. As an actor, I feel it’s fine if you want to know about my personal life, because when I’m a fan of someone, I want to know more about them too,” she says, adding, “For example, I wanted to know who Brad Pitt was dating, and then, when he was getting married. But having nude pictures [leaked] is just… I can’t even discuss it.” The actor points out that “it’s obvious someone hacked their accounts and took the nude pictures they had clicked. It’s not acceptable”.

Changing the subject, Parineeti tells us about her films this year. It’s been all about fresh pairings — first with Sidharth Malhotra and now with Aditya Roy Kapur. Ask her who is next on her wish list, and she says, “I’d love to work with Ranbir Kapoor. I’m a big fan of his. My next film is with Saif Ali Khan, and I’m really excited about it. Finally, my bachpan ka dream (childhood dream) will come true.

Known to always speak her mind, she says, “Even when I was not an actor, my dream was to be around him.” But when she said this to Saif, he wasn’t amused. “He was not happy about it,” jokes Parineeti, adding, “But I would love to work with Aditya and Sid, and all the (other) boys I’ve worked with again.”
