a niche for herself with just 3 movies. We're talking about none other than, Parineeti Chopra

October 1988 in Ambala to a Punjabi family. At the young age of 17, she moved to London where
she received a triple honor degree in business, finance, and economics from
the prestigious Manchester Business School. During a visit to Yash Raj Studio
with her cousin, Priyanka Chopra
, she was introduced to the head of PR and was
offered an internship in the marketing department. While working on promotions
of Band Baaja Baraat,
she realized she
wanted to be an actress and decided to quit her job. Initially Aditya

department. But as the fates would have it, Aditya Chopra
seeing her audition tape and within no time she was offered a 3 film
deal with the production house.
Chopra made her onscreen debut in 2011 in Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl

Screen Awards for Best Debut, while she also bagged the Apsara and IIFA for Best
Supporting Actress. Her second release and first movie as a lead was Ishaqzaade
with Arjun Kapoor
. The film
was loved by audiences and critics alike, and her portrayal of the feisty Zoya
was touted as the biggest strength of the film. The movie was credited as a
super hit and earned a National Film Award Special Mention. Chopra's recent
stint at the box office was Shuddh Desi Romance
alongside Sushant Singh Rajput
, which was also a commercial success.
She has a few projects in the pipeline opposite heartthrobs
