Parineeti Chopra No Booze, Please



Parineeti Chopra is now in London  shooting for  the  Hindi remake of  a very dark brooding intense  British  drama The Girl On The Train for which the  marvellous Emily Blunt was  nominated  for the  BAFTA award for best actress.

The role is  that  of an alcoholic woman who has delusional images  of horrible happenings in a home that she sees from  a  train every day.

Ms Blunt  drank her way through the  performance.Apparently she  was  on alcohol   right through  the  shooting of the  film to remain in  character.

Parineeti has no such  ambitions.

“I am  not drinking, just acting,” she divulges,

Highest   on  the  ‘high’ list is  the mighty Dilip Kumar who actually  drank to look convincing as  the sozzled  lover  in Bimal Roy’sDevdas. The  closest we  came to this  level of (drunken) dedication was  Aamir Khan who doesn’t touch a drop  of  alcohol in real life but drank himself silly for a song on Dharmesh Darshan where he had to  act drunk.

It remains  to be seen  how convincing  Parineeti looks as an alcoholic  without being drunk.
