Parineeti Chopra Was Told To Spend 4 Lakhs A Month On A Fitness Trainer, But She Couldn’t Afford It. Actress Says ‘People Judged Me’

Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra is riding high on the success of her latest film Amar Singh Chamkila alongside Diljit Dosanjh. The actress got married to politician Raghav Chadha last year and has recently started her singing career. In a recent interview, the actress spoke about her love story with Raghav Chadha and also about her initial days in the Bollywood film industry.

Parineeti Chopra About Her Struggle In Initial Days In Bollywood:

The Kesari actress recently spoke on Raj Shamani’s podcast. She revealed that she didn’t come from a wealthy background and has struggled to afford luxuries. She recalled the moment when her Mumbai based co-star belittled her for not being able to afford a fitness trainer that costs around 4 lakhs per month. She revealed that she has been judged for her financial limitations. She further said that despite her middle class background, she was determined to pave her way into Bollywood on her own terms and didn’t have any privileges as enjoyed by many other actors.

Parineeti recollecting a her early days said, “I don’t have ₹4 lakh a month to pay. I don’t make that money. This is my third film. And I remember going up to a co-actor of mine who has definitely grown up in Bombay, in this world. He’s like, ‘Why aren’t you hiring these people? It’s important for your job. I said, ‘Listen, but I really can’t afford it.’ I was paid ₹5 lakh for my first film (Ladies vs Ricky Bahl). That won’t even cover even one month of everything. He was like, ‘If you can’t afford it, then you shouldn’t be in this profession.’ And I felt like that’s so wrong on so many levels.”

In her initial days in the film industry, her modest earnings made it challenging to invest in expensive trainers. She also said that she had to face pressure to match societal expectations. Parineeti also called out favoritism in Bollywood. She alleged that actors who don’t have access to certain directors will lose out on work opportunities. “I feel that access to certain actors and directors lead to work opportunities. And if I am not available in front of their eyes all the time, I will lose out on that work opportunity”.

Parineeti About Her Love Story With Raghav Chadha

Talking about her relationship with Raghav Chadha, Pari said “We started talking to each other, and we realized not even in weeks, within days, we just used to talk about getting married. My mother always used to tell me when your life partner will come in front of you, you will know, and I said ‘Please don’t tell me these filmy line aisa kuch nahi hota’. I swear, I met Raghav and in five minutes I knew I’m going to marry this man”. She also said that she didn’t know about his exact job or if he was single or not.

On the work front, Parineeti has impressed the audience with her performance in Amar Singh Chamkila. The movie had Diljit Dosanjh in lead role playing the real life character of musician Amar Singh Chamkila, directed by Imtiaz Ali. The movie is streaming on Netflix.
