‘Usne khud 36 pe shaadi ki hai’: Parineeti Chopra on being asked if she’s getting married next after Priyanka Chopra – From the past three years, we saw leading actresses of Bollywood like Anushka Sharma, Sonam K Ahuja, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra Jonas getting married. Gone are the days when people used to say marriages end the career of actresses. Nowadays, it’s just a myth and the glass has been shattered by these stunning beauties.
During a group interaction for Kesari, Parineeti Chopra was asked about her personal life under the wraps, the actor quipped, “Only love life, not personal life!” On her contemporaries settling down, has Parineeti planned on taking the plunge? To which the actor replied, “Toh unse mera kya lena dena yaar? Woh kare jo karna hai unko. (What has that to do with my life? They can do whatever they want). Currently, I have no plans, I don’t think so! If I get married ever in life, then it has to be when I’m ready for it which is not today. I’m not thinking about all that today.”
When quizzed if she got inspired by her cousin and actor Priyanka’s wedding, the actor laughed and said, “Usne khud 36 pe shaadi ki hai! usne jaise badi jaldi kar li. Mere paas abhi 6 saal hai atleast.” (She got married at 36 as if she tied the knot in a hurry. Now, even I have six years for it!)
Parineeti then explained how cool the Chopra family is! She stated, “The family of Chopras na, they are very cool family. I just want to tell you, if you ever meet my family, hypothetically, you will see you will see that they are actually is a family of achievers. They are just like I’m not saying career oriented, but they love they will and they get so busy in their work. Like even my eldest cousin is not married. Mimi Didi is actually the first girl and the eldest girl to get married in our family. I have 14 cousins, only two are married. And all of us are their 30s, nobody’s married. So that’s the kind of family we are!”
“Also our own parents tell us, marriage is not the thing to find your person. Do whatever you want. travel with them, live with them. Whatever you want to do, find the correct person. If you want to get married, then get married, just be happy with that guy. That’s the more important thing that our family teaches our kids. Don’t come under this pressure of getting married. Find the right person, who’s not going to cheat on you, who’s going to be loyal and who’s going to keep you happy. If at 51, you feel you want to marry this person then do it, otherwise, don’t get married. Just have the right person because a lot of people are married and they are not happy. So how does marriage decide happiness? They want us to be happy and successful the two things, in that marriage doesn’t fit anywhere. But if it does, if you find the right person, I’ll be the first person to get married as I love the idea of marriage”, concluded Parineeti.
Talking about Kesari, the film stars Akshay Kumar as the male lead and is slated to release on March 21, 2019.
