Parineeti Chopra surely is among those very few leading ladies of Bollywood who have managed to stay away from being stereotyped.
Popularly known for her girl-next-door image, Parineeti has often surprised her fans, directors and critics with her ultra-glam and bold avatar on-screen.
Hailing from a Punjabi family, Parineeti's father is a businessman and supplier to the Indian Army at Ambala Cantonment and her mother is a housewife.
Parineeti has no qualms when she says that she hails from a typical loud, small town Punjabi family that loves to eat, laugh loudly and talk all sorts of nonsense.
Effervescent Parineeti Chopra is a mad foodie and she needs something new all the time for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Parineeti even laughs off saying that she gets the kind of cravings that pregnant women get.
Parineeti Chopra has been quite chubby in her childhood days and she lost quite a few kilos when she had to enter Bollywood and become an actress.
Parineeti has two younger brothers Shivang and Saraj and they have often been spotted getting clicked together. The actress says that her brothers have always been like her buddies ever since they grew up.
Before Parineeti made her big Bollywood debut, she was often being referred to as Priyanka Chopra's cousin sister. Parineeti also has aspiring actress Barbie Handa as her cousin.

At the Yash Raj Films, Parineeti managed to obtain an internship in the marketing department where she used to coordinate interviews for Rani Mukerji, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma and other YRF stars.
Apparently, Parineeti Chopra was happy and content with her job, as she could use and implement her knowledge and work accordingly.
You would be surprise if someone told you that Parineeti was never fond of actors and acting. Yes, that's true and she has often spoken about it on chat shows.
Parineeti who isn't too keen about wearing a lot of makeup was quoted saying in one of her interviews that "her profession was an excuse to wear too much makeup."
