Film Career

In 2011, director Maneesh Sharma, who worked under Yash Raj Films and had met and interacted with Chopra, wanted her to play a role in his second project Ladies VS Ricky Bahl and asked her to do a “dummy audition for fun”. Chopra remarked that she was “fooling around with a camera” and performed some of the dialogues of Geet from the film Jab We Met, never expecting the producer Aditya Chopra to see the tape. She impressed the makers, with Maneesh Sharma expressing that Parineeti Chopra was “phenomenal in the video test”,and was promptly signed for a three-film deal with the studio. Ladies VS Ricky Bahl featured Chopra in a supporting role alongside Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma. Although the film opened to mixed reviews and was not a box office success,Chopra’s performance was widely appreciated by film critics. Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama wrote: “Parineeti Chopra springs a pleasant surprise. She has wonderful screen presence and acts freely. In fact, the viewers would take to her character instantly”. Komal Nahta claimed that, “Of the three other girls, Parineeti Chopra is undoubtedly the best. She has the best role, the best lines and hers is the best performance among the three. In fact, she provides a lot of light moments in the first half and, more importantly, in the second half too”.

Parineeti Chopra’s second release, that saw her playing her first lead role, was the romantic drama Ishaqzaade opposite newcomer Arjun Kapoor, produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Habib Faisal of Do Dooni Chaar fame. Critics again heaped praise on Chopra’s performance. Taran Adarsh commented: “Parineeti Chopra is simply fantastic in this high-voltage drama. Playing the part of a spirited gun-toting girl, she is not the regular timid, decorous, withdrawn Hindi film heroine. She portrays the violent behavior coupled with the audacious and brash attitude with aplomb”. Komal Nahta commented: “Parineeti Chopra whom we loved in Ladies VS Ricky Bahl, shines again in a complex and intense role. She looks very good and acts like a song. Arjun and Parineeti’s on-screen chemistry and excellent performances are the highlights of the film”.
