She said: “To say that I am only playing bindaas characters is I think a very limited way of looking at the characters I’ve played. I mean, just because my characters in Ladies Vs Ricky Behl, Ishaqzaade, Shuddh Desi Romance and Hasee Toh Phasee were unconventional, does it mean they are all the same?”
“Of course, no matter who the actor is, his or her personality is bound to seep into the character. But to me my characters in Ishaaqzaade, Shuddh Desi Romance and Hasee Toh Phasee are entirely different. No similarity at all.
“In the first, I was shooting guns all over the place. In the second, I was a small-town girl smoking, drinking and living in with her boyfriend. And now in Hasee Toh Phasee, I am almost a child in a grownup girl’s body. It’s very easy and simplistic to slot me,” she added.
Her new release Hasee Toh Phasee has not exactly set the box-office on fire. But Parineeti’s performance has been unanimously hailed as a tour de force.
