Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra who has had hit movies like Ishaqzaade says that she will only do films in which her role is important. This is one of the main reasons why the actress prefers acting with new crop male actors so that her role in the movie is prominent.
The 24-year-old actress said she has rejected few projects opposite some of Bollywood's biggest stars because the routine song-and-dance films does not excite her. "I have been offered a lot of films with many big actors but I have unfortunately declined them. I felt I did not have much to do. I will never do a usual film with song and dance, the character has to be important," Parineeti explained.
"I don't want to do a film where I have a ten minute role. Till now I have done films where my role is important. If I have a good script, then I will do it. I just don't want to be a heroine in the film," she added.
This bubbly actress is glad she made the right decisions at the right time. "There were lots of masala, action films that I could have done and earned money and roamed around different locations. But I chose not to do them. Those films have released and. I am glad I did not do them," she said.
"I did not sign a film for eight months. I was reading one script every two days. I had so many offers but every film was in the same genre. I could have accepted the offer and earned money and could have had five film releases but I choose not be repetitive," she said.
The actress will be not be playing a typical heroine in her upcoming movie Shuddh Desi Romance."I was not willing to do typical heroine roles. Finally Shuddh Desi Romance offer came and I was excited," she said.

Growing In The Industry
The three-film-old actress feels her knowledge of cinema has increased. "I am aware about things like camera facing, lenses, shot taking, lighting, frame, I understand these things. But I think to grow as an actor you need a longer time period," she said.
On Intimate Scenes
Parineeti says that when she shoots for intimate scenes the actor in front may seem like a wall as intimate scenes becomes clinical. "When you are doing such scenes the director keeps giving you instructions, either to look up, down, left, right, hold hands, so it is all mechanical. There is no feeling to it. Intimate scenes are easy to do. Whenever I read a script I don't differentiate between a kissing scene or an emotional scene," she explains.
