Parineeti Chopra, who made her debut almost six years back with Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl has now carved a name for herself due to her choice of films. But a lot of the acclaim that has come her way has been because she is Priyanka Chopra’s cousin, but not anymore. Parineeti feels that though her second name plays its role, she has worked hard and made it till here.
While speaking to a leading daily, she said, “We’re always going to be cousins but today, I have my own identity as well, which I am very proud of. And that has only happened because I did some really gutsy films during the start of my career. I want my entire career to be like that so that I can always surprise my audience and they keep feeling that I’m my own instead of just being my cousin’s sister.”
Parineeti went on to add, “I am proud of being her [Priyanka Chopra] sister. When people come up to me and say look how well she is doing, I feel like I have done something [great]. It’s that love for her that I have. And she herself told me when I was starting out, that ‘you have to do this on your own’. While it was easy to say, it had to be done with my work and thankfully that happened.”
Do you agree with her?
