It is not unusual for actors to say no to certain projects and those films going on to becoming career-defining one for the actor who finally did it. We have had several actors in the past who have spoken about films they refused which went on to become cult-classics. Recently Shahid Kapoor has expressed his regret for not the Aamir Khan starrer Rang De Basanti.
Now Parineeti Chopra has spoken about a film that she wished that she had done. And she lost out on the film, not because she said no, but apparently it was all confusion!
While on a chat show with Neha Dhupia, Parineeti spoke about missing the chance of doing Shoojit Sircar’s film Piku. "I didn't really turn down the film...there was a confusion. I was going to do another film at the same time and then that film also didn't happen, so it was my loss," Parineeti is quoted to have said on the show.
The role finally went to Deepika Padukone and we all know how well it turned out for her. Her chemistry with Amitabh Bachchan, who played her father on screen, was natural and extremely lovable. And with Irrfan in the mix, Piku was an amazing relationship road trip!
On the work front, Parineeti Chopra is doing the Hindi remake of the English film The Girl On The Train. She steps into the shoes of Emily Blunt. She replaced Shraddha Kapoor in the Saina Nehwal biopic titled Saina and has been training in badminton in preparation for the film.
She is also part of Bhuj: The Pride Of India in which she plays Heena Rehman, an Indian spy staying in Lahore. The movie is based on a true incident during the 1971 Indo-Pak war and is one of India’s most fascinating war-related stories.
Besides these films she has two films that are yet to release; Jabariya Jodi with Sidharth Malhotra and Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar with Arjun Kapoor.
