Last week Parineeti along with Akshay Kumar was part of an event for self-defense graduation day for women wherein she spoke about her childhood and how she was victim of eve-teasing.
At the event she spoke about the initiative taken by Akshay Kumar and also got nostalgic by speaking about her struggling childhood days.
During media interactions she shared that her family was poor and could not afford a car for her to go to the school. Thus, she is used to ride a cycle to school every day and became a victim of eve-teasing.
In the press conference she said, “I am so touched after coming here as I am thinking about my life. I am from a very small city, Ambala. I had two brothers growing up and we had a lot of difficulties. We didn't have any money, so I used to travel by cycle, to school. We did not have a car or even money for the bus. I used to fight with my mom and dad saying why do I have to cycle to school every day. I did not have the money to join a martial arts class during the time. I am so happy for you that you got this opportunity. Thank yourselves that you are graduating from such an institute. Make use of this knowledge and go kick some ass.”
Looking at her comment we believe that Pari was trying to fit in the event and created a story so that more and more females feel encouraged to join self-defense and train themselves. She also spoke how back then during her time these families weren’t relevant. Pari was perhaps trying to fit in the event and look convincing enough and created a case study for the females present.
However, soon after the event, MERI PYAARI BINDU actress was perhaps misinterpreted for her statements.
Her former classmate from school slammed the actor by saying that her story is a lie. He posted on his social media saying, "Parineeti Chopra Shame…coming from a privileged background and lying through the teeth in front of the camera. I guess this is what being a celebrity means. Create a fabricated sob story of no money no car etc etc (sic)"
He also said, “Coming from the same school I probably also remember the car her father used to have. And going to school on a cycle was a trend those days and also a privilege not everyone had. My friends from CJM (Convent of Jesus and Mary) would probably understand the lies a bit better (sic).”
It seems her classmates didn’t understand what Parineeti tried to convey.
And when news flashed on media portals his friend deleted the post.
Being out of the country and Parineeti wasn’t aware that her statement entered into controversy.
She immediately clarified on social media saying that her words have been misconstrued.
