Hasee Toh Phasee has received a warm response from the critics and the audience alike. The question is, will this movie catapult Parineeti’s career to a new level?
Parineeti Chopra has been one of the more exciting actors in recent times, with Hasee Toh Phasee up for release, we ask our in-house Tarot Reader, Shruti Chopra about Parineeti, her films and much more…
BollywoodLife (BL): Hasee Toh Phasee is Parineeti’s next release after Shuddh Desi Romance. How will it fare at the box office?
Shruti Chopra (SC): Quite frankly, it’s a strange combination of cards. They don’t suggest success, but just a steady growth. The Tower and the Five of Cups explain a disappointment on a script and execution level, whereas the actors will be liked for what they manage to deliver.
BL: Will that not effect Parineeti’s career? Will she grow and remain a successful actor?
SC: It doesn’t effect her career in totality, but it does bring a sense of reality that Bollywood may not be such an easy journey. When it comes to an overall successful career, she will certainly achieve that. The Temperance and the Ace of Pentacles reflect this success only through risk taking, making her calculative and better planned post the release of Hasee Toh Phasee.
BL: There will always be this comparison between the cousins, hence will Parineeti become more popular than Priyanka? Or even take up a singing career herself?
SC: As of now and the near future, Parineeti will not be more popular than Priyanka, but as mentioned earlier, her ability to now plan out her career better certainly takes her in that direction. Parineeti will go through the grind and fatigue of this industry, but that will only sharpen her skills, allowing the Wheel of Fortune card to come into play. Her popularity will sky-rocket, especially post 2015.
The desire to sing is there, but it’s not something that she will take on anytime soon. If she does, then it won’t be such a wise move. She has a lot to learn and explore as an actor before she ventures down this path. Eventually she will be seen singing – she might just do her own play-back.
On a different note, Parineeti has the skill to come up with some interesting story concepts, hence writing and ideating may be added to her resumé soon.
BL: Love life? Marriage? Are they on the cards soon?
SC: Love isn’t her priority. She is in the Fool card phase – a time when you just go for things; explore; enjoy and least expect. In fact even if she tries to change a relationship towards something serious, it will only lead to hurt. Therefore it is best that she handles her own emotions and keeps them stable. Marriage is a possibility in 2017.
