Weight Loss

Parineeti Chopra has been working really hard at getting the perfect body. If latest reports are to be believed, then her drastic transformation became the talk of the town. The secret behind her skinny appearance is a detox program in Austria. With no surgery involved, the program helps people achieve their body goals. Under this program, the patient has to undergo several tests in order to determine what his or her body can tolerate. Depending on that, a diet chart for six months is drawn, which the clients have to strictly adhere to. And it costs between `5-10 lakh for a 15 to 30 day course, depending on the program. Parineeti's expectation before taking up this new regime was that she wanted to fit into hot clothes. And she has got her wish.


Parineeti Chopra is currently single and not dating anyone. She said, "Romance is very important! Not the cliched romance but love, yes! I am single right now but I'm not looking for love as such but it will be nice to be having a relationship with a person you love."


Parineeti Chopra always wanted to become an investment banker. At the age of 17, she moved to London, where she received a triple honours degree in business, finance and economics from Manchester Business School. In 2009 she returned to India and moved to Mumbai to stay with her cousin, Priyanka Chopra. Priyanka introduced Parineeti to the head of the public relations team of Yash Raj Films.

Chopra obtained an internship in the marketing department, joining the production company as a public-relations consultant. She considered it a perfect job, because she could use what she had learned and work in films.

While working on promotions for Band Baaja Baaraat, Parineeti realised that she wanted to become an actress and decided to resign from her executive position with Yash Raj Films to attend acting school. Film director Maneesh Sharma suggested signing Parineeti to Aditya Chopra, vice-president of Yash Raj Films.

Bollywood Debut

In 2011 Chopra made her screen debut in the romantic comedy Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, in a supporting role with Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma.

The film received positive reviews from critics, and she earned critical acclaim for her performance.
