Parineeti hates girl-next-door tag
MUMBAI: Actress Parineeti Chopra feels perturbed when people refer to her as the quintessential ‘girl-next-door’ of Bollywood. She hopes that with her forthcoming films “Kill Dil” and “Daawat-e-Ishq”, she will be able to break that stereotype.
“That’s what I feel too. Whenever I am asked this, I’ve to spend half an hour explaining why I feel I don’t need to be slotted as the girl-next-door. Like when I am asked, ‘Oh, you excel at playing the loud Punjabi girl’. The funny thing is, I’ve only played Punjabi in my first four films released so far. I was not Punjabi in ‘Ishaqzaade’ or the subsequent films,” the actress said.
“Maybe some people think just playing loud characters makes me Punjabi. But if you think about it, the girl I played in “Hasee To Phansee” was very different from the girl in “Ishaqzaade”. I hope “Daawat-e-Ishq” and “Kill Dill” kill that image.”
