Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Piku‘ not only bagged many accolades, but also performed magically at the box-office. Apparently, Parineeti Chopra was the original choice to portray the leading lady in ‘Piku’.

As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Parineeti Chopra marked her appearance on Neha Dhupia‘s chat show ‘Vogue BFFs’. The actress revealed that she lost the opportunity to do ‘Piku’. The role eventually went to Deepika Padukone. The actress said, “I didn’t really turn down the film. There was confusion. I was going to do another film at the same time and then that film also didn’t happen, so it was my loss.”

While speaking about her character, Deepika Padukone had told IANS, “I think we had all thought that it’s a sweet film and that people will connect with it, but none of us had expected it to become this big. It’s gone beyond our own control. The biggest compliment for me has been… I know it may sound funny, but a lot of people want to adopt me. Multiple people have told me that they want to adopt me after watching ‘Piku’, and that’s very overwhelming.”

On the work front, Parineeti Chopra is currently prepping to portray Saina Nehwal in her biopic. The actress is also gearing up for the release of ‘Jabariya Jodi’.
