As we all know, a short while ago, it was rumoured that Parineeti Chopra would be making her Southern debut with a film opposite the much-loved Mahesh Babu. Shortly thereafter, it was reported that she had been replaced by Rakul Preet Singh. During a recent interaction with a leading daily, Parineeti opened up about these developments and clarified that she had been approached for the film but never signed the dotted line.

“I'm not sure who said that I was doing the film, but the fact is, there was never an announcement from our side. We never comment on any film till we sign on the dotted line. Maybe the news came from their team. Yes, I was approached for it and discussions were going on... Maybe that's why it led to the speculation, but one can only make an announcement once you sign it on paper. I never spoke about it. Unfortunately, as much as I would have loved to do it, I can't because the dates didn't work out. I am committed to Homi Adjania's Takadum and another film after that. Having said that, I would like to add that I would love to do South films, but unfortunately, none worked out because of dates or other issues. I would love to do all kinds of cinema, whatever the language,” she added.

On a related note, Pari currently has Meri Pyaari Bindu and Takadum in her kitty. Moreover, she will also be seen grooving to a catchy number in Dishoom.


I watch Tamil/Telugu movies, and in particular, ARM's movies in recent times, have had NO role for the heroine. Just watch Thuppakki (Holiday original) and Kaththi, the girls had nothing to do, simply eye candy. I don't think Pari backing out of this is a big deal.

Your loss ... More power to rakul she is going to kill it

Rakul is way mre prettier than this average pariniti

She doesn't wanna work in shitty South Indian movies with ugly ass people!

Shilpa Shetty as well from south.. this guy has a very limited or No knowledge.. ignore..

This guys is disgusting to make this statement...FYI...Sridevi, Hemamalini, Aishwarys rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone,Vidya bala, Dia Mirza, Sania Mirza, Anushka Sharma all are from South..

ugly ass people? have you seen mahesh babu? you need to get your eyes as well as brain checked! she chose varun dhawan and ayushman khurana over mahesh babu! parineeti too needs to get a check-up along with you.

She missed a golden chance

Honestly I think it would have been a good choice for Pari. Poor desicion by her to refuse the film

she didnt say that when she was rumoured to be cast in sultan (like it started the rumours by them end etc)??What the hell is wrong with bollywood they treat south like something inferior!! Nowadays I watch more south films (specially telugu )than bollywood, man they know how to entertain people. And by the way mahesh babu is too handsome and such a great actor. Go watch shrimanthudu, race gurram (allu arjun), dangerous khiladi 2, one , 24 and many more which are miles away in comparison to dilwale, sultan, kick, hny, dhoom 3. They are better actors than bollywood, watch parugu (the original heropanti) and you will feel second hand embarassment. Just disgusting. Pari you are jobless just flaunting away your slim body like a trophy and kissing in random item numbers, alia is daddy kjo daughter who's career is being made step by step by 1000 people such a shame she is not even 1% selfmade, shradda is just good looking and lucky.

PV please stop it took a lot of time to write this and also because you guys never post my things.

She's not in a position to say No to films...that's why she's always endorsing anything these days from toilet cleaning products to pesticide sprays

she wants to do bollywood she is just being diplomatic

Casting couch. More power to Pari.

Wasn't it because Parineeti charged 5 crore for the movie that she was replaced with Rakul Preet...Mahesh Babu is the SRK of South,no producer will be willing to pay that amount to the actress!

ARM Said that it's bc of languages issues! They replaced her with someone who is more comfortable with the language. But so many diff reports are roaming around….

IKR!! Even Anuskha Smanatha probably don't get that much and She wants that opposite Mahesh Babu!

Coz Southern movies (even though way better in content and storyline than Bollywood) are a refuge for flop Bollywood actresses.

Deepika's first movie was a SI , infact Kannada film Aishwayra

I think u don't know the basics of south movies ! All leading Bollywood actress acted in south films except Deepika.Coming to the case of parniha this is a foolish decision made by her.She doesn't have one proper movie to show in her career .Only lip kisses will save her movies .She really missed acting with Mahesh

deepika also acted in south films.her debut movie is kananda movie aishwarya and i had seen her in one tamil movie as a heroine friend or somethig suppotive one but i dono exactly the movie name..

Deepika had acted in south her 1st movie was aishwarya opposite upendra its a kannada movie nd she did 1 item song in telugu but that movie never released
