Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra are contemporaries and have always been pitted as rivals. Recently, while talking about Alia Bhatt's choice of films, Parineeti made an interesting comment. She said that the kind of movies Alia is doing now, she did it right at the start of her career.
Parineeti Chopra told a leading daily, "She did those films (Highway, Udta Punjab), but I did them right at the start of my career. I did Ishaqzaade (2012) and won the National Award for that. The kind of films she started with... things like Student of the Year (2012) or Kapoor and Sons, are the kind of films I'm doing now.''

She further added, "Alia started with a glamorous film, I
started with a non-glam one."

Talking about the competition in Bollywood, Parineeti Chopra said, "This (other actors delivering hit films) keeps me on my toes. It makes me work harder and do as well as them. There is no negativity. I knew Alia before her first film released, and Shraddha even before she started acting. Our friendship really helps. It only means more encouragement for each other. And even if there is competition, it is healthy.''
On the work front, Parineeti Chopra will be seen in Meri Pyaari Bindu opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. Reportedly, Parineeti Chopra will also sing for the first time in the movie.
Meri Pyaari Bindu is directed by Akshay Roy and produced by Maneesh Sharma, under the banner of Yash Raj Films. The film is slated to release next year.
