While Priyanka Chopra has been gaining a worldwide recognition, her cousin Parineeti Chopra is not far off. Just in her two year span career, the actress has grown tremendously. This September 6, both the Chopra sisters have a movie release each. However, Parineeti tells us that there is no competition at all.
"It's only when the media pits us against each other that we
actually realise that we are in the same profession, but there's no
competition between us. My bonding with Priyanka is indescribable.
We grew up together until she went off to America to study. But
these days we hardly even meet. And when we bump into each other,
we discuss anything and everything but films.
This Friday Priyanka will be seen in Zanjeer and
Parineeti will be in Shuddh Desi Romance. We
have seen Priyanka giving us some hit song numbers and here we have
Parineeti who tells us that everyone in their family sings.
Parineeti who is known as the new bubbly girl tells us that her
co-actors like her the way she is. "My co-actors, especially those
who know me well, like me for being vocal and expressive. They
respect the choices I make and they also respect my point of view.
I don't think anybody has any problem with me on that front," she
The actress also tells us about her character in the forthcoming
movie Shuddh Desi Romance in which she stars opposite
Sushant Singh Rajput. "I am not my regular self in Shuddh Desi
Romance. In the promos or in the songs, you may get that
impression. In fact, in Shuddh Desi Romance and even in
Hasee Toh Phasee, my characters are very different from what I am
like in my personal space. In fact, while shooting for Shuddh
Desi Romance I was bit unsure, as my character has many
different layers," she revealed.

Parineeti Chopra tells us about her upcoming movie. She says,
"The film is about lovers who don't follow any rules. My character
Gayatri in Shuddh Desi Romance has been into
Parineeti As Gayatri
In Shuddh Desi Romance, Gayitri takes her relationships
casually; she's cool about having many affairs, but at the same
time she believes in the importance of relationships and the people
she is attached to. But she's not a loose character either. In
fact, Gayatri has many shades to her colourful personality.
I think because the character was very difficult to play, I was
not that confident. The challenge was to create a new person that
I'm not! So we had to do many workshops for me to be able to play
this character, Gayatri.
Will Parineeti Be A Singer Soon?
"One day I will sing for sure. Everybody in our family is a
singer. In fact, I am a trained singer, Priyanka is not. I have
learnt Hindustani classical music from Pracheen Kalakendra in
Chandigarh. I have performed live during all my growing years. Be
it ghazals, classics or Bollywood songs, I have sung it all. But
Priyanka is a brilliant singer, I must say," Parineeti
A 9-5 Job?
I am very ambitious,but I don't want success at the cost of my
personal life. I want to keep my health in check, my personal life
in check. I treat my profession like a nine to five job
