I want to be in a re­la­tion­ship: Pari­neeti

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Prashant Singh prashant.singh@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Ac­tor Pari­neeti Cho­pra says she wants to be with a “sim­ple, hon­est and non-com­pli­cated guy”. Ex­cerpts from an in­ter­view with the 27-year-old, who looks ra­di­ant in the song, Jaane­man Aah, from an up­com­ing film.

Are you dat­ing some­one?

There’s been no one in my life for a while.

You have been say­ing this for­ever…

It’s true. Some­times I feel, “Why (am I sin­gle)? I am here, ready (to be in a re­la­tion­ship).” We (ac­tors) don’t get to meet too many peo­ple. We’re mostly in touch with peo­ple who we work with — co-ac­tors, di­rec­tors, pro­duc­ers, etc. I am to­tally open to be­ing in love. I’ve been sin­gle for years now. I want to be in a re­la­tion­ship, with a sim­ple, hon­est and un­com­pli­cated guy.

You’ve got a great re­sponse for your new song…

Peo­ple have con­fi­dence in me as an ac­tor and that’s why I have the lib­erty to do all that I want to do for fun. I agreed (to do the song), as I knew I was work­ing on my body.

Has your im­age makeover helped you re­dis­cover your­self?

Ab­so­lutely. When I en­tered the in­dus­try, I was naïve. I thought it was all about act­ing, which could hold true for cer­tain ac­tors, but for me, it was never like that. I al­ways wanted to be a quin­tes­sen­tial Bol­ly­wood hero­ine, but I didn’t know how. I’ve learnt on the job. The makeover has helped me look fit­ter and younger.
