Parineeti Chopra had three consecutive outings earlier this year with The train girl, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, and Saina. The actress was appreciated for her role in all three films. While Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar Directed by Dibakar Banerjee released in theaters in March of this year after much delay, the film was only returned recently after its digital release. Critics and audiences alike praised the film and the performance of the lead actors, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti. Now in an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Parineeti opened up about criticizing her performance when a film doesn’t work and about the impact a director has on the actors’ performance.
Parineeti was highly praised for her performance in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and part of the credit also goes to Dibakar Banerjee for bringing out the best in her. “If you have talent and that talent can be showcased, that’s an actor’s greatest achievement. There are so many talented actors who can’t find a good script. They keep saying that they are talented but they are unable to show it, it is the most unfortunate situation. But with me, it was the other way around. When I started my first 5-6 films were good, I got all the awards for them, I got all the appreciation for them. But after that, suddenly my acting was challenged because the movies didn’t work. But no one questioned the movies and said it didn’t do her justice, ”she said of the criticism of her performance when the movies didn’t work.
“So I finally wanted to wait and be patient, thinking that I would only make films that would allow me to show my talent to its full potential. That’s why I made this movie (Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar), that’s why I made Saina and Girl on the train. Because I was sick of hearing people say that I am not doing my best. I was always doing my best, but maybe the material wasn’t something that showed me the best. So my greed was, I’m going to give my 100 percent, give me the script, ”she added.
“When I got Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, right after reading it I said I wanted to do it saying it was exactly the role I wanted. And when you have a director like Dibakar who is going to bring out the talent in you, then whatever the fate of the film is, you will always be proud of it. Another thing that happened with the film was that a lot of people had written off the film. A lot of people thought that nothing would happen to this movie and it’s a bad movie, the directors, and YRF gave up on this movie, and more was written. And we always felt at least giving it a chance. And that’s what happened. Unfortunately because of the covid people didn’t go to the movies but we knew that every time this movie came out people would understand this movie and what is going on. So getting due as an actor and getting due as a movie star both happened with this movie and I’m happy with that, ”she concluded.
