Parineeti Chopra has been locked as the lead actress of Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari. Producer Karan Johar made the announcement via Twitter on Wednesday. “The lead actress in ‘Kesari’ is Parineeti Chopra,” Karan wrote.
“Audiences are keen to see a performance, as much as they like watching the stars and larger-than-life films. So being able to deliver in different genres and tackle a variety of roles has more value. She said repeating myself at this stage of my career would just be uninspiring. I like to challenge myself and put out a new aspect with each film,” said Parineeti.
She was last seen on screen in the comic entertainer Golmaal Again , which crossed over 200 crore in India. She said it would be lying if I said the Rs 100 crore benchmark doesn’t matter. It matters to every actor. It just shows how audiences are accepting you, how much they love you. I’m loving the feeling that I have right now,” she added.
Her next film project is Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. Parineeti says Banerjee was always in the list of her “dream directors” ever since she started acting. Parineeti acts as an ambitious girl in the film.
