Dares to bare: Parineeti opens up about fashion, copies Deepika

By Lifestyle Correspondent

When Parineeti Chopra, a marketing MBA, made her debut with the 2011 film 'Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl' she and fashion were at loggerheads.

Now, counted as one of the rising stars, talented Bollywood actress Parineeti dares to bare her heart and face her nemesis on the cover of Vogue.

The actress features as the cover girl for the latest issue of fashion magazine.

Previously, Parineeti had appeared on Vogue back in November of last year with Alia Bhatt, Sushant Singh Rajput, Arjun Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurranna.

Currently gearing up for her film 'Hasee Toh Phase', the actress reveals how destiny played a major part in her journey towards becoming a Bollywood actress.

On the cover, Parineeti wears a shimmering Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna gown from their spring-summer 2014. She smacks her lips with bold orange colour and a serious amount of hair extensions.

But co-incidentally Parineeti repeats one of the dresses now made famous by actress Deepika Padukone when she attended the Filmfare Nominations party.

Deepika launched the Stardust January cover and attended the Filmfare Nominations party wearing a Pankaj & Nidhi mosaic print, sheath dress from their spring/summer 2014 collection.

Her look was lauded by the fashion critics as she accessorised with a House of Chic skull gold necklace and Christian Louboutin pigalle leather pumps.

Even Parineeti looks a million dollar lady in that blue dress; she let her hair loose and completed her look with a huge beaded neck piece.

In a behind the scene video, Parineeti confesses about her perception of Bollywood.

She says, “Acting was what I never thought of, even though I had a superstar (Priyanka Chopra) in my house. I never got influenced because I always wanted to be a banker. I always thought that this glamour world was all floss and there was no intelligence required. I always used to look down upon it, but I think destiny played its role, recession hit, I wasn’t getting any job. So I came to India, joined Yash Raj Films and everything just changed from there.”
