Parineeti Chopra opens up on ‘Bollywood camps’

Parineeti opened up about lack of work opportunities in a recent interaction with Pinkvilla. She said, “I am just saying that there are camps, there are circles, there are favourites. Two people who are similarly talented, who can bring the same thing to the table, one will be a favourite and one will be not and the one who is not will lose the work opportunity which is why I really urge that this becomes a meritocracy. So if I am able to bring that talent, if I am able to bring that same amount, then I must also get the opportunity and not lose it because I don't have a relationship or I am not in your camp or I am not in your clique.”
