Parineeti Chopra: Didn’t get acting break because of Priyanka

The Ishaqzaade actor says she did not get her first break because of sister-actor Priyanka Chopra

Parineeti Chopra, who made her Bollywood debut last year with Ladies VS Ricky Bahl, cleared the air during an episode of television show Live My Live 2 aired on UTV Stars.

Parineeti said there is this popular belief that she got her first movie because of her sister, Priyanka, but the fact is that she knew Maneesh Sharma, who directed Ladies VS Ricky Bahl, since a long time and that’s how she was approached.

Tuhin, a fashion designer from Kolkata, met Parineeti on the show. Parineeti told Tuhin how she is called a tomboy by her father and he always tells her to be more feminine and classy. She says he wants her to behave a little more reserved, instead of being the frank person that she is. Tuhin gifted Parineeti a gown, that he created in one night, after being informed that he was selected for the show.

The episode featuring the actor will be aired on Monday, December 31.
