The 25-year-old, whose rom-com “Hasee Toh Phasee” will hit theatres Friday, says there is no competition with Priyanka.
While, this time their films have a gap of a week, in 2013, Parineeti’s “Shuddh Desi Romance” and Priyanka’s “Zanjeer” released on the same date, Sep 6.
“No, there is no competition with her (Priyanka). Infact I am just waiting to watch ‘Gunday’. I just wish I get to see the movie at a screening before it releases on Feb 14,” Parineeti told reporters during the promotion of her film here.
The actress will be seen essaying a mad scientist in the movie and she says portraying the character was “physically very exhausting” for her.
“The character that I am playing is very quirky. It is different from the ones I have played before. Usually in movies, either an actress plays a normal girl or a mentally challenged, but my character in the movie is between the two. It was physically very exhausting for me to play it,” she said.
“The character is a bit off (mentally), she makes faces, she doesn’t blink her eyes, she keeps her tongue out, so getting all that in a shot was very difficult. It was quite challenging for me,” Parineeti added.
“Hasee Toh Phasee”, which is directed by Vanil Mathew, also features Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role.
