“Alia started with a glamorous film, I started with a non-glam one”
As a norm of the film industry, two actresses from the same generation are always pitted as rivals. Although Alia Bhatt has been praised for her performances in Udta Punjab and Highway, Parineeti Chopra feels her own filmography is no less bright.
“She did those films, but I did them right at the start of my career. I did Ishaqzaade (2012) and won the National Award for that. The kind of films she started with… things like Student of the Year (2012) or Kapoor and Sons, are the kind of films I’m doing now,” said Parineeti, in an interaction with a leading daily. She insisted it’s just a different graph, and added, “Alia started with a glamorous film, I started with a non-glam one.”
