Parineeti Chopra defines the intelligent, independent and talented self-made star in Bollywood. Having completed a prestigious triple honors master’s degree in finance, business administration and economics from Manchester University, Parineeti returned to India and joined YRF in the marketing and public relations division. Filmmaker Maneesh Sharma spotted Parineeti’s acting potential when she auditioned for LADIES VS RICKY BAHL. She won a Filmfare award for Best Female Debut. In Habib Faisal’s ISHAQZAADE, she delivered a feisty performance of a small town North Indian girl. Be it with HASEE TOH PHASEE or SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE, Parineeti has won praise from critics for her layered performances.

Parineeti is the face of the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Andolan’ - a central and Haryana state government initiative. She has been vocal against female infanticide and discrimination against the girl child. Her confidence makes her a natural choice to endorse prestigious brands like Nivea (Lipcare), Suzuki, Kurkure (Pepsico India), Emami (Boroplus), Sugar Free and others. She tackled a phase of criticism over her weight gain with a high impact social media campaign ‘Built That Way’ which focused on her patient, sincere and physically demanding fitness regimen over the past year.
