Parineeti Chopra who is known for her simplicity has once again surprised us. The actress says she prefers working with male leads who are as new as she is. She refuses to work with Bollywood hotshots. Though a movie with them might get her her required fame, it doesn’t necessarily adds to her kitty.
She says, “I have been offered a lot of films with many big actors but I have unfortunately declined them. I felt I did not have much to do. I will never do a usual film with song and dance, the character has to be important. I don’t want to do a film where I have a ten minute role. Till now I have done films where my role is important. If I have a good script, then I will do it. I just don’t want to be a heroine in the film.”
But wouldn’t you think one would regret making such a rash decision? Nope. She has no qualms about it. She says, “There were lots of masala, action films that I could have done and earned money and roamed around different locations. But I chose not to do them. Those films have released and… I am glad I did not do them. I can’t name the projects. But I don’t regret not doing those projects,”
That’s not it. Parineeti doesn’t want to repeat the roles either. She wants to portray a different character every single time. She says “I did not sign a film for eight months. I was reading one script every two days… I had so many offers but every film was in the same genre. I could have accepted the offer and earned money and could have had five film releases but I choose not be repetitive. I was not willing to do typical heroine roles. Finally ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ offer came and I was excited,” she added.
She stars alongside Sushant Singh Rajput in Shuddh Desi Romance. The movie is due to release this week.
