Parineeti Chopra, who will be seen in a live-in relationship with her onscreen boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput in "Shuddh Desi Romance", sees living together as a practical solution for busy couples who do not get time for each other.
"I don't think live-in relationships are different from marriage. Today, live-in relationships are more out of practicality," Parineeti told reporters in a group interview.
Giving an hypothetical example, she said: "I am an actress. If I get too late at work and if I want to meet my boyfriend, when do I meet him? Obviously, in the night. If I come back home and sleep in my place, people will say it's not a live-in relationship. It's all about our perception.
"Whoever is not in a relationship, even there pre-martial sex exists. I myself want to know why is it different?"
Although she supports it, Parineeti confesses her parents won't be able accept it.
"My parents are very orthodox, so I may get scared to do this because they will feel bad. But actually it is fine," she said.
