I hope there are COM­PAR­ISONS BE­TWEEN priyanka & me,

There’s some­thing about Pari­neeti Cho­pra that in­stantly makes you like her—per­haps the lack of starry tantrums or re­hearsed speeches, and a no-frills-at­tached at­ti­tude. A bunch of lucky Cosmo read­ers got to learn this, and more, by in­ter­view­ing the most p

t’s al­most easy to for­get that Pari­neeti Cho­pra is just two films old in the in­dus­try. Her rise to fame, fiery spirit and con­fi­dent at­ti­tude, match that of a vet­eran. “Be­ing con­fi­dent is about be­ing your­self,” she says. “Peo­ple will al­ways tell you what to do and how to be­have.

Is it tough be­ing a star sis­ter? Are the con­stant com­par­isons an­noy­ing? —Trishala Shandilya, 20

“Hav­ing a star sis­ter is only full of pros and no cons in my head. The kind of help and trou­ble shoot­ing I can do with her, I can’t do with any­one else. She has the right an­swers to all my ques­tions. As far as com­par­isons are con­cerned, I hope there are com­par­isons be­tween me and her. She’s al­ready es­tab­lished her­self as a great ac­tor and if peo­ple say both sis­ters are great ac­tors, su­perb, b my job is done.”

Do you feel the pres­sure to lose weight and be ‘skinny’ like your co-stars? —Parul Ba­jaj, 18

Nooo! I never can be skinny. Firstly, I don’t have the body struc­ture to be a Size Zero. But the cru­cial thing is that I don’t have the mo­ti­va­tion to be
