Parineeti Chopra is talking politics. No, not the general pow wow that runs rampant in the industry. According to insiders associated with her forthcoming movie, the young actress often talks about the dynamics of day-to-day political developments in the country. Surprisingly, her newfound interest is attributed to shooting for her film in the small towns in central India.
Not surprisingly, when she started shooting for her film, Parineeti had no interest in politics and didn’t follow it beyond regular headlines. However, being constantly around people who are not only politically aware but also have their own analysis and opinions on the subject, in cities like Bardoi, Barabanki and Lucknow, changed all that.
As our source explains, “There were no fancy places to hang out when shooting in such locations. So the places they hung around were frequented by locals who’d often discuss the daily political developments. And with the then upcoming elections and the face-off between Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav, the environment was very heavy with the subject. That’s how Parineeti got interested in politics. And soon, she was also discussing updates with the local youth.”
Our source further adds, “During elections, Parineeti would follow the exit polls and discuss the developments with her family and friends. She would reason why something was good and how something would affect people in general.” The actress is currently said to be preoccupied discussing international politics vis-à-vis the BRICS summit.
