I'll go back to banking to run my house: Parineeti

June 30, 2014

Parineeti Chopra has managed to make a mark for herself in Bollywood, but the actor says she still keeps -banking sector as an alternative career option. The 25year-old, who made her Bollywood debut with Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl (2011), said, “I have a backup plan and I think -everyone should have one. The day when my films start flopping, I will go back to banking. To run my house, banking is the safe option for me.” Once an aspiring -investment -banker, Parineeti worked as a -marketing professional at a prominent production house before her foray in films. “There are very few people who are lucky and don’t have to struggle much to get into films.

If one has an interest (in -acting), then one must try, but should also have a backup plan because the film industry is very unpredictable,” she says. The actor, who made it clear that she got her debut offer directly from director Manish Sharma and producer Aditya Chopra and that her sister, actor Priyanka Chopra, had no role in it, revealed that she considers Manish and Aditya as her mentors. She adds that she often consults them regarding her films. “Manish has been my -mentor. Manish and Adi are two people, who I ask for suggestions and -opinions,” she said.
