Parineeti Chopra speaks to Filmfare about her upcoming projects, and how she has transformed into the fit and presentable heroine now.
She says that when she began her career in Bollywood she was not worried about her appearance as she concentrated more on her acting abilities. Once in, she realized the need for looking presentable. She says, "But today I’m part of the glamorous industry. How I look is as important as how I act. No one likes fat actresses."
She also mentions how Shahid Kapoor used to tease her about it. She says that when she lived with Priyanka Chopra, Shahid used to live in the same building. Apparently, they all used to go out to eat all the time and have fun. She says she was fat then. Shahid therefore teases her saying, “You were such a fat girl and now look at the heroine you’ve become.”
What are your thoughts on this? Between talent and looks, what works better for a star in Bollywood?
