Parineeti Chopra Urges Directors, Producers To ‘Look Beyond Market Value And PR Games’: ‘We Deserve…’ – News18

Parineeti Chopra stars in Amar Singh Chamkila.

Parineeti Chopra appealed to directors and producers to look beyond superficial things while giving opportunities to people.

Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra’s Amar Singh Chamkila has finally been released amid much anticipation. The film is based on the life of the iconic Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila. Parineeti Chopra is receiving a lot of praise for her role as Amarjot, Chamkila’s singing partner and wife. However, the actress also admitted to making bad choices earlier in her career due to wrong advice. She also had a special appeal for directors and producers.

Parineeti told Pinkvilla, “My choices were wrong because I heard the wrong advice. A lot of people gave me a lot of wrong advice. I feel that I came into this industry completely unprepared. I didn’t know what was required to be a heroine in the industry. I just used to do my work and go home. Then I started listening to all this advice. People said, ‘See that actress had one this, you should also do it.’ So, I got lost in a lot of advice.”

“That was template advice. You can’t copy other people and expect the same result for yourself. So, because of that, I changed a lot of commerce and left my core, which was performance. And now, directors like Dibakar Banerjee and Imtiaz Ali, who have given me Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Chamkila, have reminded me what the audience is looking for from me and to never make those wrong decisions again. So, that has been a big learning,” she said.

“My appeal would be I hope directors and producers look beyond that. Look beyond market value and PR games, and look beyond the superficial things and give us the opportunity that we deserve,” Parineeti Chopra concluded with this special appeal.

Meanwhile, News18 gave Amar Singh Chamkila 3.5/5 stars. The film is directed by Imtiaz Ali and is available to be streamed on Netflix.
