She has the guts to call a spade a spade. She doesn't spare herself too. Yes, we are talking about Parineeti Chopra who admits she needs to lose a lot of weight, but doesn't want to compare herself with Sonakshi. She doesn't think twice before calling Rishi Kapoor forgetful. The actress is lavish with her praises too as she calls her arch-rival Alia Bhatt the next superstar.
As Hasee Toh Phasee, her next, gets set to release on February 7, we look at Parineeti Chopra's recent quotes which define the firebrand personality that she is.
Alia Bhatt will be a big star
"Alia and I are good friends. In fact, she always tells me these things. So when she said this on the show, I felt good that she praised me. I even gave her a call and told her that she doesn't need to feel insecure because I feel Alia will be a very big star," Parineeti said in an interview.
Priyanka is not my role model
She's not my role model. In fact, nobody is my role model. In this profession, you cannot aim at having a career like someone else's. I could be inspired by different people for different things, but that's about it."
Please don't compare me with Sonakshi
"Sorry to inform you, but you can’t compare me to Sonakshi Sinha (in terms of weight). Yes, if Alia is a benchmark, then I definitely have still not reached to her mark, but still you can’t compare me to Sonakshi Sinha!" said the actress in an interview to Bollywood Life, when quizzed about 'weighty' issues.
I don't want to be called big
"When I had entered the industry I was big and used to fit into that size category. Now, I feel I am not, as I have lost much more weight and look better. I don`t want to be in that weight category... I am working very hard to become thin. I feel I am skinny now," Parineeti said.
"I am 25-year-old and there is no reason for me to look fat. I want to look great. I am taking care of myself and I am losing even more weight because I want to look better," she added.
Rishi sir doesn't remember names
“Rishi sir has an adorable habit. He doesn’t remember anyone's name. So, what he will call you next is always a surprise.
The best part is that he laughs the most about this habit of his.”
Don't enjoy intimacy on screen as it isn't with people I am dating
During one of her interviews with Vogue India for the February 2014 issue, the actress says that she doesn't enjoy such scenes "because it isn't with people I am dating."
"If you felt I was enjoying it, I must be doing a bloody good job! I actually don't enjoy intimacy on screen because it isn't with people I am dating. And the kind of person I am, nobody hits on me- they are all cool buddies. I am not a flirtatious person," said the actress.
