Sidharth said, “I was a part of this project before Parineeti came on board. We had a discussion and decided to go ahead. The very fact that I haven’t really done a film like this made me push my creative boundaries. I don’t want to be a prisoner of my own image and keep doing only sleek urban films.” While Parineeti shared, “This is just the kind of film Sidharth and I were looking for. The humour, desi swag, the Bihari language and the storyline… everything is in sync. And it’s not a new territory for me as I have been part of similar stories that were based in small towns. They have really helped me to evolve as an actor. It’s definitely challenging, but being an actor gives me a chance to explore many characters.”
Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra talks about the value of Box Office collection and their upcoming film “Jabariya Jodi”
Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are jumping from city to city for the promotion of their upcoming flick Jabariya Jodi. In a recent chat with TOI, the stars talked about their film and how box office collections don’t matter all the time.
Talking about box office collections, Sid said, “An actor can’t let the BO collection of his previous film affect his performance in his current film. Even our superstars have had flops, one has to move on. I have been accepted by my audience as one of the popular stars of our generation and that is a huge encouragement for me. Pari was also clear that there is much more to a film than BO collections. “My last two films Golmaal Again and Kesari did well at the box office, so I am in a happy space. When you go through a rough patch it’s tough make a comeback. But one can’t think about BO collections, there’s more to a film than that,” she said.
When asked about social media, the acror said, “For me, social media is more of a professional medium. It’s a place where I can put out the trailer of my films, connect with my fans and get their feedback. I get to know what my fans are thinking of my work. On the other hand, Parineeti said, “I thrive on constructive criticism, praise will not take me anywhere. It’s always good to get an honest opinion as it helps me add more to my craft. When I get negative comments, I reflect on them. As for irrational trolling, I simply ignore them.” She further added, “I don’t believe in following trends. I don’t have any carefully constructed image on social media, what my fans see is the real Parineeti. I am a simple girl who wants to have her share of fun on social media platforms. As celebrities we have to share our views.”
