Parineeti Chopra: Being A Rohit Shetty Heroine In Golmaal 4 Is A Big Deal For Me

Parineeti Chopra made the world sit up and take notice with her drastic physical transformation. The actress is all set to make a comeback of sorts with Meri Pyaari Bindu and is the new Golmaal girl.

While her playback debut, Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahi, from the former has been well-received, she is also looking forward to enter the genre of full-fledged comedy. sat down for a chat with Parineeti. Excerpts from  the conversation that followed:

How is the shoot of Golmaal 4 coming along?
It’s a lot of fun, cool set. Rohit (Shetty) is an amazing director. He has the most loyal team. The whole day goes by and we don’t come to know. We are shooting every single day with a huge cast and senior actors. I am also getting to learn a lot.

It must be a different experience for you...
I was looking for a commercial – for the lack of a better word – fun, comedy film and Golmaal 4 came at the right time. Meri Pyaari Bindu is a different kind of film so I was looking to enter this genre. Rohit Shetty and Golmaal 4 was the perfect combination, so I am glad and thankful that it happened.

You are getting into Kareena Kapoor’s shoes, so comparisons will be made...
No. Golmaal is a franchise and every film has its own actors. Being a Rohit Shetty heroine is a big deal for me; I’m honoured and nervous. Hope I live up to everyone’s expectations.

Let’s talk about your eating habits. Do you still avoid certain food items?
I was eating everything even when I was in the process of losing weight and continue to do so. However, I try to balance it out as and when needed.

No dos and donts?
It’s just about not eating very late and knowing what’s right for your body. I just don’t eat the stuff my body is intolerant towards.

Anything in particular?
I am lactose intolerant. I avoid eating milk products. I love yogurt and cheese; I often eat them and regret (laughs).

You were trolled on social media some time ago. Do you plan to quit the medium?
No way. It was a small thing. It came and went. I am very active on social media. I love Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook.

Do you think nepotism exists?
A lot of things have been said on the subject and I don’t have anything new to say.

Back to your weight loss, are you still on a weight reduction mission?
No. I am trying to maintain my weight, but obviously, you can never maintain your perfect level of fitness. That is always an ongoing process.

Do you still feel you should lose more weight?
It’s not about that. I definitely want to be as fit as I can and that involves having a lot of stamina, strength, flexibility. It’s not about ‘mujhe patla hona hai’. It’s not as black and white as that. I want to achieve a level of fitness I am proud of.

Was the weight reduction important for Bollywood considering it’s a fad to look at thinner heroines in the industry?
I feel there are very few actors who have the privilege of being in the top 10 or top 8. Heroines are only 8-10. It’s very important to look a certain way on-screen.

For instance, I think in a film like Meri Pyaari Bindu, you are required to look a certain way and a fit body is always perfect, apart from looking good.

Being fit is an asset. An actor becomes an inspiration if she or she is fit.
