Parineeti Chopra, who will be seen next in Hasee Toh Phasee, was all praises for her contemporary Alia Bhatt. Alia had also spoken really good about Parineeti on the popular talk show Koffee With Karan and praised her acting skills.
To this, Parineeti said “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.”
While this kind of talk proclaiming friendship is not uncommon in the industry, what makes us wonder if Parineeti-Alia friendship is just to get enough attention for their upcoming films Hasee Toh Phasee and Highway.
Meanwhile, the male lead of Hasee Toh Phasee, Siddharth Malhotra (who’s first film was with Alia Bhatt and second is with Parineeti) was asked to choose among the two leading ladies. He said “Ok, I have to pick between Alia and Parineeti. It depends upon the comfort zone. Alia and I went through a different journey. It is a bit special with her because it was our first film. There is far more history with Alia. But in our second film one can experiment much more, you can have more fun. So the onscreen comfort is far more with Parineeti.”
