Nick Jonas is crazy about Bollywood music and his constant love for peppy songs has been evident enough through social media. Courtesy: Parineeti Chopra and Priyanka Chopra Jonas' Instagram account. Parineeti, who was last seen in Jabariya Jodi, opposite Sidharth Malhotra, shared a new post which shows 'Nick Jiju' dancing his heart out on the song Khadke Glassy from the same film.

The caption read: "When Nickster does it better than Sid and I did in our film @nickjonas @sidmalhotra #KhadkeGlassy." Nick Jonas seems extremely energetic grooving to the beats of a Punjabi song. Donned a casual orange coloured suit, Nick's headbanging act has taken the internet by storm.

While the Hollywood star is totally killing it with his energetic dance moves; his wife Priyanka Chopra also seems to be loving his Bollywood steps. She commented "Amazing! Haha" on her sister's social media post.

Speaking of Nick Jonas' professional commitments, the American pop singer is currently busy winning hearts with Happiness Begins tour with his two brothers Joe, and Kevin. On the other hand, Parineeti has recently wrapped up shooting for Hindi remake of the Hollywood movie, The Girl On The Train.

The Hollywood film was based on the 2015 bestseller by Paula Hawkins and tells the story of a divorcee who catches daily glimpses of a seemingly perfect couple Scott and Megan, from the window of her train during her daily journey. Her life is turned upside down when she learns that Megan has gone missing, and is somehow involved in the incident.

Parineeti is set to play the part of the alcoholic divorcee who finds herself involved in the missing person investigation. The look was evident enough to watch out for the film to be a grungy and intense one. The Ribhu Dasgupta-directorial is slated to hit the theatres in 2020. Parineeti will also appear in 'Bhuj: The Pride Of India' and 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar'.

    Though Parineeti Chopra has made it big in Bollywood just like sister Priyanka Chopra, she has often faced flak - first, for being called as an 'overweight' actress, and after her transformation, for losing weight! More recently, however, the actress has become an inspiration to a lot of people for being a woman who is comfortable in her own skin.

  • 6/19

    On April 2016, the actress shared a post on Instagram about her weight-loss journey. Parineeti Chopra wrote: "BEFORE .. All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the "Bollywood pressure"?

  • 7/19

    The post further read, "To that I say - thank god I became an actor and had that pressure! I am able to achieve what I couldn't achieve otherwise. I feel more confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud! Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives. They show me their wallpapers, their wallets, and its all pictures of me!! They look at those pictures and want to make that change in their own lives. They look at my Built That Way campaign and have stuck it to their walls."

    Parineeti Chopra has also said that her transformation has helped her grab a lot of roles. In an interview, Pari said, "When you look a certain way, filmmakers can expect something from you. They may think that an actor can pull off a certain role because of how they look... I got 'Golmaal Again' because the girl had to do a lot of action in the film. I don't think I would have got it had I not been fit."

    When the actress asked if filmmakers began viewing her differently after her weight loss, Parineeti Chopra said, "I think yes. It is not necessarily the typical way that 'Now, she is looking sexy so, we will look at her in a different way.' Not at all. It is not like that. Our directors and producers are beyond all of this. They just saw that I could do something different."

  • 11/19

    Parineeti Chopra said staying fit gives filmmakers a chance to visualise an actor in various roles. She said, "When you look a certain way, your expectations from that person are of a particular type, that maybe she can only do these many roles. But when you give them a shock like this (her weight loss), they see you in a different way."

  • 12/19

    Parineeti Chopra got under the scanner for her drastic weight loss, with some praising her dedication and some criticizing her for sending out a negative message on body image. But the actress says she doesn't always pay attention to what people are talking about to avoid getting caught in a "vicious circle". Now the actress feels no pressure to look a "certain way".

  • 13/19

    In a recent interview with IANS, Parineeti Chopra said, "You can't always pay attention to what people are talking about you. If you do, you will get into a vicious circle. You have to feel good, you have to feel fit. Fitness is extremely subjective and that's the fun of it."

  • 14/19

    'Fitness is all about challenging yourself - every single day, every single training session' is Parineeti Chopra's mantra. "If it doesn't give you the rush, the thrill, you will get bored. I look for something new, something to push my physical boundaries every single day. It is also changing your perspective towards health and harmony," said Pari.
