Deepika Padukone replaced Parineeti Chopra in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku? Here’s what Parineeti has to say
Parineeti will next be seen in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar opposite Arjun Kapoor and as we speak, the actress is prepping up for the biopic on badminton player Saina Nehwal.
We have all read stories of films passing on from one actor to another due to various reasons- like Shraddha Kapoor replaced Katrina Kaif in Street Dancer 3D, Parineeti Chopra replaced Shraddha Kapoor in the biopic of Saina Nehwal and Katrina Kaif replaced Priyanka Chopra in Bharat and in the latest, it is being told that Deepika Padukone wasn’t the first choice for Shoojit Sircar’s Piku. That’s right!
On Neha Dhupia’s show, When Parineeti made an appearance with BFF and Tennis player Sania Mirza, the Golmaal actress revealed that she could have been in the place of Deepika Padukone in the 2015-hit film Piku.
Talking about the same, Parineeti stated, “I didn’t really turn down the film… there was confusion. I was going to do another film at the same time and then that film also didn’t happen, so it was my loss.” Well, like they say, all’s well that ends well and honestly speaking, we can’t imagine anyone else but Deepika Padukone in the role of Piku, isn’t it?
Piku was directed by Shoojit Sircar and the film starred Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan in lead roles, and the film was a commercial success worldwide.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Parineeti was last seen in Namaste England opposite Arjun Kapoor and next, she will be seen in Jabariya Jodi opposite Sidharth Malhotra and the film is slated to release on August 2, 2019.
