Having been on a weight losing spree, actor Parineeti Chopra felt the pressure of Bollywood to be in shape but she is now happy to be fit.
“There are women who are pregnant or are dealing with post pregnancy weight, or teenagers who are obese, from across the world, (they) want to know my story. I am a fat-to-fit story,” said Parineeti. I have struggled with my weight. I was big and unhealthy, not chubby. I took it upon myself to work towards this. There was pressure of Bollywood to bring me on right part.” The 27-year-old actor now eats and sleeps well. “I am fit now. People need to be fit no matter what size they are. I was big and unfit. It took me a year-and-half to reach here.”
The Daawat-e-Ishq actor was away from the screen for quite sometime and now post her weight-loss break, she is all charged up. “Now I have this dedication and concentration on my work because of the break. I wanted to work on my body, I am 27 years old. I wanted to wear shorts and better clothes and not worry about anything. This one year break was amazing.”
Parineeti will be seen dancing with Varun Dhawan in the ‘Jaaneman’ song from his upcoming film Dishoom. In the song Varun and Parineeti are seen sharing a sizzling chemistry.
The actor says that her on-screen kiss in a special song from upcoming film Dishoom was her co-star Varun Dhawan’s idea. “It was Varun’s idea that we should have a kiss at the end of the song. On the day of the shoot, Rohit (director) wasn’t there so that’s when Varun popped the idea”, said Parineeti. Dishoom is set to release on July 29.
