"There have been a lot of rumours that I am losing weight for 'Hasee Toh Phasee', but that's not true. I will just try and lose as much as I can, so I can look as good as I can in my next film," the 24-year-old said here Monday at the unveiling of new range of Nivea products.
"I was anyway planning to lose weight because for 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl', I had to be a little chubby and then of course, I started losing for 'Ishaqzaade'. But I want to look a little better, so I decided to lose weight anyway," she added.
Scheduled for release in Januaury next year, shooting for "Hasee Toh Phasee" has begun. It has Siddharth Malhotra in the male lead.
Parineeti, who won appreciation for her spontaniety in her last two films, said: "I know there are a few actresses who are very comfortable with their size and would like to only concentrate on acting, I would like to do both."
What about wearing a bikini?
"Yeah, if one day I have the body for it, I will," she said.
Her kitty has two more projects - Maneesh Sharma's untitled film and "Kill Dil".
