When actors Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra graced HT House, as part of HT City Stars in the City contest, moderated by HT City Editor Sonal Kalra, they ­overwhelmed and awed their fans with their antics, quirky ­stories, ­vivaciousness and ­gregarious attitude.
Tell us about the fun you had while shooting for your upcoming film, Hasee Toh Phasee?
Sidharth: It was a very ­physically challenging film. The amount of ­physical ­tortures I had to suffer because of her kicking me around was massive.
Parineeti: Wow I will tell you a story of how I was ­physically tortured. During the shooting of a song, there is a sequence in which Sid had to throw me back after I jump in his arms. Isse Laga main bahut bhari hun, (He thought I was heavy) so he used all his power, as a result of which I was flying across the room — like you see those slow motion shots.
What is that one question that, when asked, irks you the most?
Parineeti: I get angry when people call me Parineeta. They don’t know my real name.
Sidharth: When people ask me certain tips and formulas for ‘pataoing’ a girl. I mean there is no set formula or a pattern for this. Every girl is special in her own way.
How’s your equation with actor Alia Bhatt, Parineeti?
Me and Alia have been friends even before her debut. We keep texting each other and aren’t bothered by what people say about us.
What is the one thing that you miss the most about Delhi, Sid?
It’s got to be my family. Ever since I have moved to Mumbai, I miss them a lot. The first thing I did when I landed here was having the special mutton dish that my mother cooks.
