At the song launch of her next film Jabariya Jodi, Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra were asked to comment about the recent tiff that the members of the media had with the makers and cast of the film Judgemental Hai Kya. Sidharth Malhotra spoke on the issue –

Absolutely, this relationship that we have is like a husband-wife, like old couples. Fights, quibbles, these things are normal. But we should not take this personally, we should take this professionally. We both have come here to work. When we invite media people here, it isn’t our intention to misbehave or act rudely with you. I feel this is a one-off incident. I feel like you are our colleagues, because we spend so much time together.

Sidharth and Parineeti both narrated incidents and situations wherein they thought and believed that the media were more like working colleagues or professional friends, and that they have grown together in the same industry.

Parineeti Chopra was then asked about whether she feels she has become a ‘desi girl’, since the film is based in the country’s Hindi-heartland Bihar. To this, Parineeti responded by saying, “I think there can be only one ‘Desi Girl’ in this world, in the industry!”

I wouldn’t even try to compete. But we both (pointing) to Sidharth are very desi in this film. That’s all I would like to say because there is one and only Desi Girl and nobody can take her place.

So would Parineeti Chopra and Priyanka Chopra ever like to work together and collaborate on a project further? The actress didn’t deny –

If there is a correct script, then we would like to work together. I had recently also said that if any producers or directors are making an action film, we would love to work together on it. We both have spoken a lot about working together, but the script should be correct.


Parineeti Chopra has always been on great terms with cousin Priyanka Chopra. She makes sure to drop by Priyanka’s place when she is in New York, and had also posted several pictures with Priyanka in the latter’s gala wedding in Jodhpur last year.

The Sidharth-Parineeti starrer Jabariya Jodi releases on August 2. It marks their second collaboration together after their 2014 film Hasee Toh Phasee.
