It's very easy to slot me: Parineeti

Parineeti Chopra doesn't feel that she is being typecast as the out-of-the-box bindaas rabble-rouser and contends instead that she has portrayed different characters in her films.

Parineeti Chopra doesn't feel that she is being typecast as the out-of-the-box bindaas rabble-rouser and contends instead that she has portrayed different characters in her films.

She said: "To say that I am only playing bindaas characters is I think a very limited way of looking at the characters I've played. I mean, just because my character in 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl', 'Ishaqzaade', 'Shuddh Desi Romance', and 'Hasee Toh Phasee' were unconventional, does it mean they are all the same?"

"Of course, no matter who the actor is, his or her personality is bound to seep into the character. But to me my characters in 'Ishaqzaade', 'Shuddh Desi Romance' and 'Hasee Toh Phasee' are entirely different. No similarity at all.

"In the first, I was shooting guns all over the place. In the second, I was a small-town girl smoking, drinking and living in with her boyfriend. And now in 'Hasee Toh Phasee', I am almost a child in a grownup girl's body. It's very easy and simplistic to slot me," she added.

Her new release "Hasee Toh Phasee" has not exactly set the box-office on fire. But Parineeti's performance has been unanimously hailed as a tour de force.

And she is over the moon with the praise.

"I was playing a borderline whacked-out character. When people had seen the promos, they thought I was doing one more vibrant bindaas character. But this one is completely different," she said.

Parineeti is excited about working with director Habib Faisal a second time in "Daawat-e-Ishq".

"Habib will always be special. He gave me 'Ishaqzaade'. When I did 'Ishaqzaade' with Habib sir, I was new and raw. This time while doing Daawat-e-Ishq with him I understand his craft much better. I think I am much better able to understand what he wants from me as an actor. I don't have to struggle to understand him. So the work atmosphere is far smoother and we get the scenes done far quicker."

Parineeti enjoyed working with Aditya Roy Kapoor and Anupam Kher in "Daawat-e-Ishq".

"We've become really close. Anupam Sir is like Aditya's and my age. We quickly finish our shots and rush to his van. I am already depressed because the shooting is nearly over. I want to do more films with Anupam sir," she said.
