The new beach bum in Bollywood is Parineeti Chopra. Her posts on Instagram, where she is nailing her beach body in swimsuits and bikinis, leaving everyone green with envy. Her “chill mode” pictures from Maldives is breezy yet racy. This new Speedo brand ambassador is just not getting out of water. The beguiling Little PC setting some serious fashion goals too.
Parineeti Chopra might be the global icon Priyanka Chopra’s cousin but she has never lived in the shadow of her cousin’s success but instead carved a niche for herself by being her effervescent both on and off screen. When she started off her Bollywood career with Ladies VS Ricky Bhel, she captured eyeballs for her chubby and buoyant attitude, later she came across as a fiery girl in Izzhaqzaade with Arjun Kapoor.
She was constantly trolled for being too chubby for Bollywood but her devil-may-care approach towards those faceless trollers won the hearts of many. She advocated body shaming and campaigned to create awareness on the importance of using sanitary pads.
Although her movie with Aditya Roy Kapoor, Daawat-e-Ishq sinked at the box office, her actions did manage to get some acknowledgement from her fans and critics.
The movie Hasee toh Phasee was a game changer in her career. She spelled talent effortlessly. She shouted out to the world that she was there to stay for longer than one can imagine. Her acting prowess took a new shape.
Post a few hits and misses, ebullient Parineeti Chopra went into brief hibernation mode, just to come back fit and toned. She surprised the world with a new body. From chubby, she went on to become one of the fittest actresses in Bollywood.
Her next film Namaste England with Arjun Kapoor is coming up soon and her Instagram stories and posts are making us restless about the wait.
