After Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Parineeti Chopra made a strong entry in Bollywood with hits movies ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ and ‘Ishaqzaade’, it is turn of Priyanka Chopra’s other cousin Barbie Chopra to make her debut albeit in small screen.
When HT asked about her cousin Priyanka Chopra said that Barbie was her ‘bua’s (aunt’s) daughter’ and ‘a very sweet girl’.
The actress recently shot a commercial with her cousin.
“Yes, I’ve shot a commercial with (Barbie). And if I can help any of my family members, I don’t see anything wrong with it,” said the actress.
When asked if more Chopra’s can be expected to make their debut in Bollywood, the actress said, “Yes, I want my own Chopra clan to take over Bollywood (laughs). It feels good to see all of them (her cousins) doing well.”
Priyanka Chopra’s movie ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ also starring Shahid Kapoor released today and the actress said that she is happy that she got to be a part of a romantic movie after a long time.
“It has been a long time since I did a full-on love story. While ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ (2011) was a dark comedy, ‘Don 2’ (2011) was action; ‘Agneepath’ too was an action-drama where I played a ‘chawl ki ladki’. I was really looking to act in a romantic caper,” she said.
Meanwhile Parineeti Chopra, who won two IIFA awards recently and has received kudos for her acting chops in ‘Ishaqzaade’, where she and Arjun Kapoor carried the entire movie on their shoulders, cant stop praising her big sister Priyanka Chopra.
“She always gives me advice on all things under the sun. We don’t belong to a filmy family, so she is always the first person I call. She is the one who has been in the industry and knows things,” said Parineeti Chopra to HT.
