Mumbai, Mar 13 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Parineeti Chopra is hoping high with her next Yash Raj project Ishaqzaade.
She has already bagged eight awards this year with her portrayal of a rich, brash, gullible Delhi brat in her debut film Ladies vs Ricky Bahl.
“Tell me, how many people get all the awards at every award function they attend and that too — for a person who never thought she will be an actor?,” said Parineeti.
However, her only complaint is that several people thought she played herself in the movie.
But she said this opinion is soon going to be change with her next project Ishaqzaade.
“Ishaqzaade will show me in a role that is completely different from Dimple. Without conceit, I can say that this film — my solo lead — will have one of my finest performances, all thanks to Habib sir [Faisal, director],” she said.
Parineeti will be starring opposite Arjun Kapoor, son of filmmaker Boney Kapoor and stepson of yesteryear actor Sridevi.
This film is going to be produced under the Yash Raj Films banner and will release on May 18.
The movie is set in rural India and is a turbulent love story between a couple belonging to two warring clans.
