The feisty Chopra gal turns 25 today
Born on October 22, 1988 Parineeti Chopra who is just three films old in Bollywood had different plans. The Shuddh Desi Romance actor wanted to become an investment banker, but after obtaining a triple honours degree in business, finance and economics from Manchester Business School, the Chopra gal returned to India in 2009 and moved to Mumbai and stayed with her actor cousin Priyanka Chopra. Parineeti first visited Yash Raj Films studio with Priyanka who was then shooting for the Uday Chopra starrer Pyaar Impossible. After this, Parineeti joined Yash Raj Films as public relations consultant. While she was working on the promotions of Band Baaja Baaraat, she decided to take up acting.
After this, she signed a three film deal with YRF and made her acting debut in 2011 in Maneesh Sharma’s Ladies vs Ricky Bahl opposite Ranveer Singh. Her character of a Delhi-based rich brat won a lot of critical acclaim. Parineeti also won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. Following this, the actor was seen in a romantic drama Ishaqzaade opposite Arjun Kapoor. Her performance in this film won her several award nominations. After the Arjun Kapoor starrer, Parineeti’s next film was Maneesh Sharma’s Shuddh Desi Romance with Sushant Singh Rajput and Vaani Kapoor. Like her previous films, Pari received a lot of appreciation for her role of an outspoken and rebellious Gayatri.
After these films, Parineeti’s upcoming films include Hasee Toh Phasee opposite Sidharth Malhotra, Kill Dil with Ranveer Singh and Ali Zafar and Daawat-e-Ishq opposite Aditya Roy Kapur. With so many films to look forward to, we hope Parineeti takes out some time to celebrate her special day with her loved ones.
We at BollywoodLife wish the bubbly actor a very happy birthday. Do send your wishes!
