Biography

Parineeti Chopra is an Indian film actress, born in Ambala, Haryana into a Punjabi family. Her father, Pawan Chopra, is a businessman and supplier to the Indian Army at Ambala Cantonment and her mother is Reena Chopra. She has two brothers: Shivang and Saraj; actress Priyanka Chopra and Meera Chopra are her cousins.

She received her early education at the Convent of Jesus and Mary in Ambala Cantonment. In an Interview published in The Hindu, she revealed that she was a very good student and had always wanted to become an investment banker.

At the age of 17, Chopra moved to London, where she received a triple honours degree in business, finance and economics from Manchester Business School in the United Kingdom.

In 2009 she returned to India in the wake of the economic recession and moved to Mumbai to stay with her cousin, Priyanka. During a visit to Yash Raj Films studio, Priyanka (who was shooting for Pyaar Impossible!) introduced Parineeti to the head of the public relations team of the company. Chopra obtained an internship in the marketing department, joining the production company as a public-relations consultant.

She considered it a perfect job, because she could use what she had learned and work in films. Ironically, Chopra had disliked actors and acting; to her, the profession seemed like an excuse to wear too much makeup. While working and observing actors, however, her perception changed. She realised that she never understood acting and her respect for the profession increased.

She made her screen debut with a supporting role in the 2011 romantic comedy Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, which was moderately successful at the box office. Her portrayal of a Delhi-based rich brat, Dimple Chadda, drew critical appreciation. Chopra went on to win the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
