Parineeti Chopra is in the news these days after she hopped onboard for the Saina Nehwal biopic, after Shraddha Kapoor stepped out due to reasons unknown. In fact, she is currently prepping for the film by undergoing rigorous training and workshops. The actress has started the drill with co-star and coach Eshan Naqvi at a suburban sports club. Talking about her prep for the game and film, Parineeti Chopra had told Mumbai Mirror, "Prep usually starts early because we have booked courts in slots when there are no distractions of any kind. We start at 6 am and wind up by 8 am. I will have to live this regimented life for the next nine months but I am pretty kicked about it. I want to do justice to the film and to Saina."
But as demanding as that sounds, Pari is also to spare some time and effort for her other passion project singing as she is all set to release her first music video. After crooning for the Sachin–Jigar composition Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin in Meri Pyaari Bindu, the actress is soon coming with her single titled “Mujhe Tum Nazar Se” just like her Mimi didi, Priyanka Chopra. According to Mumbai Mirror, the single is a recreation of Mehdi Hassan’s song by the same name and the original’s hook-line has been retained for the new version. It is a Bhushan Kumar production which has been composed by Amaal Mallik with lyrics by Manoj Muntashir.

The lyricist told the publication that the song was recorded around three months ago and is currently being upgraded, "Music evolves every day and it’s important to sharpen the song to make it appealing. Pari’s voice is very relatable. Koi ustadi nahi hai, isiliye seedha dil pe lagti hai," he added. Reportedly, Parineeti who will shoot for the video next month will also re-dub some portions sometime soon.
The report also suggests that the music video will feature a male actor who is yet to be cast. However, the recce has already begun. Manoj who has penned the songs for the actress’ forthcoming films, Bhuj: The Pride of India and the Saina Nehwal biopic also revealed if Pari has sung any song for Saina. After being quizzed about the same he said, "There are no plans yet. Saina is an emotional story because, besides the badminton ace’s achievements, it will also focus on the inherent simplicity of the Hyderabadi girl, who at the end of the day likes to return home to a cup of coffee. My songs will focus on that simplicity." So, now you know!
Meanwhile, Parineeti will be next seen in Jabariya Jodi opposite Sidharth Malhotra. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on July 12. Stay tuned to BL for more updates and scoops!
