EXCLUSIVE: Parineeti Chopra reveals if moments of self-doubt ever broke her
After making a terrific debut with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Parineeti Chopra went on to deliver some hit films like Shuddh Desi Romance, Hasee Toh Phasee, Golmaal Again to name a few. Unfortunately, there came a time when the actress self-admittedly chose some wrong scripts. But now the bubbly actress is ready to bounce back with The Girl On The Train.
In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble, we asked Parineeti if she had any moment of self-doubt because of the kind of films she chose in the past few years. Read on to know what she said.
Sharing if her wrong script choices confused her about what she was doing or if that broke her down, Parineeti said, “No. See two very big things happened in my career. One is in terms of the films I chose and how people reacted to them etc. And two was how I used to look and how I changed that. These are two very big events that happened in my career. And both times when I was looking at what people were saying about me when I was reading that feedback, I always agreed with them. I never said, ‘No I am absolutely dressing amazing and I look very fit’. I never argued that because I am a very objective and honest person. I was like, ‘Yes you guys are right and I am working on it. Just give me a year’. And then I did that transformation. Even in the films when people said, ‘Why is she doing such crappy films?’, I was like, ‘I know just give me a minute. I am trying to figure it out’.”

The Kesari actress went on to add, “The only problem is that we do it in public, so people are judging you while it’s happening. You don’t get that time like let me disappear and come back. We don’t get that. So it actually makes me smile that it’s okay. It’s part of my journey. It never broke me. The fact that people still care about me is what keeps me going. People could have given up on me. They could have said, ‘Oh she never looked good or she will never be able to do well in films’. But no, today three directors – starting with The Girl On The Train, Saina Nehwal even Sandeep Vanga (Animal). They have still shown me that love and support. So that means a lot. That means I did enough good work and karma in my first few years.”
