This was most apt, to make her dream come true of pursuing her career in investment banking. But, then the situations turned on and due to the economic recession in 2009, she has to come back to India.
Wondering how Parineeti’s thoughts to be an investment banker took turn & invited her in the film industry? Well, that’s way more exciting!
After homecoming in 2009, she returned to Mumbai & stayed with her cousin Priyanka Chopra, who was shooting for “Pyaar Impossible” in those days. Priyanka introduced Parineeti to the team of Yash Raj films, and there she got an internship in the marketing department. Her initial joining in the film industry was in the production company & that too as a public-relations consultant.
She never liked actors and actresses!!!
But, then, what changed her perception?
When it comes to acting, she used to think, that it’s all about wearing a lot of makeup, she doesn’t like the life of showbiz. But, on the sets of “7 Khoon Maaf”, when she saw Priyanka Chopra getting ready and how an actor put efforts to perfect each shot presented on the screen, her perception towards the profession changed completely.
Parineeti mimicked the dialogues of several movies and scenes numerous times in her leisure time. But, after her changed perspective towards acting, she thought to give a shot to her career in the film industry. Later, she decided to quit her job as a PR consultant and went to attend acting school. After a conversation with Aditya Chopra and her instant audition, he was impressed with her acting skills, and quickly signed three films with her. But, at that time, Parineeti was not fit for appearing on the screen. Parineeti decided that it’s the high time, and she needed a makeover. In few months, she came back with her transformed version from fat to fit. She is renowned in the film industry for such astonishing transformation.
