Parineeti Chopra is treading on a right path. Where actresses cash in on their hot bod to grab roles, Parineeti believes otherwise. The bold and brash actress, who has proven her acting mettle with films like LADIES V/S RICKY BAHL, ISHAQZAADE, and SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE, is shedding kilos to feel better, to dress well and be at par with her contemporaries.
Says Parineeti, ''I never expected to talk like this as I have never turned to dieting. Whenever I wanted to lose weight I used to workout. But now that I am not getting time to exercise, I think the best way is to diet. It's just for myself. I was sick of looking at myself ki arey aaj yeh mota dikh raha hai aaj yeh bahar nikal raha hai. It was so annoying.'' She adds, ''Although I have a glamourous look in KILL DIL but I am not just losing kilos for that. As I genuinely thought now I should lose weight. I should look better so that I can dress better. I am young and like any other actress want to look good. Initially, I couldn't even wear sleeveless clothes because I used to be so big that I felt ugly. I used to cover myself all the time but now at least I can wear beautiful outfits as I am getting in shape and size.''
There were also reports that Parineeti is set to don a bikini for KILL DIL. When quizzed if she is working out to get a toned body for the film, she denied saying, ''...No that's not true. I am not wearing a bikini because firstly there is no requirement in the story. Also, as the film is based in Delhi's Lajpat Nagar, how silly it would look me donning a bikini there? Having said that, I will wear a bikini only if I have a body for it. Right now I don't have it so I can't don it.''
Probe Parineeti about the importance of good looks in the glitzy industry and she says, ''It depends a lot on what kind of actress you really are. So far the kind of roles I did didn't actually require me to be so pretty, and thin. It was only in ISHAQZAADE where I had to look toned, fit and aggressive. But now going on a crash diet is my personal opinion.''
So ask the chirpy actress if she has set any targets for herself and she says at once, ''No targets yaar. I am not going to be that strict and starve unnecessarily...However; I have stopped my pizzas, which I am highly fond of, and chocolates. In fact, I haven't eaten pizzas for weeks now.''
Meanwhile Parineeti is gearing up for HASEE TOH PHASEE, which is set to release on 7th February 2014.
