She never wanted to be called Scapegoat as she is Women Enough to take all the responsibility of her bad choices ( In Films and personal life). If there’s anybody who can also be called the essence of an underdog, it is Parineeti Chopra, Though she is a natural actor, who was just facing a lil bad time and it is over now, as she says.
Parineeti had tried to be on her own, however she could never got out of her cousin sister Priyanka Chopra’s larger than life shadow. Life further derailed when her films didn’t do well at the box office, what she always admits and never stall the question. She Says, in one of her interview that Two of my films, Daawat-E-Ishq and Kill Dil Didn’t work and that was my first setback.
Suddenly I was not getting films – Or if I would say the kind of films/Roles I was looking for and Was struggling for money whereas I had made a big investments and bought a house, She Said. Then I went through a big heart break also in my life, which I would say was Literally a collapse in all of my departments of my life and most of the things were down and I had nothing positive to look forward to”, adding that she also confirmed that she practically retreated and gone into a shell.
Parineeti says, I Stopped eating, sleeping well, didn’t have any friends at that time. I never met people. I cut off touch with everyone including my family. I would talk to them once in two weeks. I was gone, I just used to be in my room, watching TV, sleeping, getting up, starting all day. I was a zombie and I was a typical filmy depressed girl. I would curl up on my sofa and sleep, falling ill all the time, I didn’t meet the media for almost six months, she said.
Parineeti added up some more things to addendum and said, I was very unhappy with the work I was doing. I had faith in myself but the filmmakers just wouldn’t offer me the part I was longing for. I was signing films but looking for the right project and sometimes stonewalling to pick up the right thing. I was in a constant state of dissatisfaction. But thankfully, that phase ended.
Parineeti says, I will be forever indebted to three directors – Amol Gupte ( Saina), Dibakar Banerjee (Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar), and Ribhu Dasgupta (The Girl On The Train),” And Indeed, they pulled the underdog out of the Jeopardy and into the spotlight that I deserved.
