For her gym session, the actress kept it simple in her white t-shirt and sky blue gym leggings. She teamed up her attire with light blue sports shoes and her favourite pink gymbag.
Pari feels elevated to don the hat of Saina Nehwal. Pari says, "I was dying to do a sports-based film. It's a part of my personality as an actor that I have never explored, and I am so happy that I get to portray a strong and powerful girl like Saina! She has put our country on the world map and I excited to put in all the training and hard work that comes with learning the game of Badminton and portraying Saina on screen.
The Ishqzaade girl is also gearing up for the release of Jabriya Jodi in which she will be teaming up with her Hasee Toh Phasee co-star Sidharth Malhotra. Jabariya Jodi is based on a real-life practice of kidnapping eligible grooms by the bride's family, forcing them to get married to avoid paying dowry.
In a recent interview, Pari said that the film doesn't aim to send across a social message and hence has taken a comic route. "We are not giving any serious lecture or message through this film. We are just showing you that such a thing happens in India, but because we love watching comedies, we have given it a comical spin," she said.
Parineeti said the duo received a lot of love as a pair for the film and were particularly careful in choosing their next. "So while we used to talk about working together again, we did not go for those films because we wanted to do something extremely different from Hasee Toh Phasee. When this film came, Sid called me and said we should do this film and I should talk to Ekta", she said.
