Parineeti Chopra on Kesari: I did the film for a song
By Bandook - March 14, 2019
Parineeti Chopra’s next Kesari, sees her cast opposite Akshay Kumar in a minuscule role. But ask her about that and she insists she’s convinced the film will stand the test of time.
Speaking of her role to Mumbai Mirror, she said, “When Karan (Johar) called me for the role, I didn’t ask him about the number of scenes I would be in. This is not that kind of a film. Fifty years from now, I can proudly say that ‘Kesariis a part of my filmography. Most other films that I or any other actor does, there are equal parts. But I wanted to work with Karan, Anurag (Singh) and Akshay sir.”
And the real reason she’s in the film is a romantic song from the film. “When Karan played the song for me I fell in love with it. Now, it’s a running joke between us that I did this film just for that song,“ she said.
Kesari is expected to release March 21, 2019.>
