Parineeti Chopra Reveals She Couldn't Afford Rs. 4 Lakh A Month For Fitness Trainer And Dietician

Parineeti Chopra is the sister of famous Bollywood-Hollywood actress, Priyanka Chopra. However, things haven't been easy for her when she entered the world of glam and glitz. While many think that being a sister of Miss World would have added an advantage to her career, it wasn't the thing. Parineeti had her own share of struggles, and she continued to face them. Currently, she is receiving a lot of love for her acting stint in the film, Amar Singh Chamkila.

Parineeti Chopra first time talked about not being able to afford fitness trainers and dieticians

Recently, in a podcast with Raj Shamani, Parineeti first time talked about her financial struggles at the start of her career. She revealed that she didn't make a lot of money and people advised her to leave Bollywood.

Parineeti revealed that she didn't come from a rich background and hailed from a middle-class family. She added that people who were already in the business would judge her a lot. Parineeti was quoted as saying:

"I don’t come from a very rich background. I’m actually a very simple, middle-class girl. I genuinely don’t understand Bollywood. I genuinely don’t know how people in Mumbai operate. I don’t have these high-flying friends. I don’t have a trainer, stylist, everything already ready for me. And people who were already from here and already knew this world judged me a lot."


Parineeti added that she wasn't able to pay Rs. 4 lakh as she didn't make that much money. It was her third film, and she had earned only Rs. 5 lakhs for her first film, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. She added that she went to her co-actor, who grew up in Bombay, and he stated that she should leave films if she can't afford the expensive. She said:

"I was like, ‘I don’t have Rs. 4 lakh a month to pay. I don’t make that money. This is my third film. And I remember going up to a co-actor of mine who has definitely grown up in Bombay, in this world. He’s like, ‘Why aren’t you hiring these people? It's important for your job. I said, ‘Listen, but I really can’t afford it.’ I was paid Rs. 5 lakh for my first film (Ladies vs Ricky Bahl). That won't even cover even one month of everything. He was like, ‘If you can’t afford it, then you shouldn’t be in this profession.’ And I felt like that's so wrong on so many levels.”

When Parineeti Chopra opened up about her weight gain 

For her latest film, Parineeti had gained a lot of weight. Once in an Instagram post, Parineeti shared a video compilation of her body transformation. The actress revealed that she gained 15 kg weight for her film, Amar Singh Chamkila, which will be released on Netflix. She added that in the last six months, her life revolved around AR Rahman's recording studio and eating junk food at home.

Parineeti further revealed that she has been working hard in the gym to return to her fit self. She was seen doing heavy exercises in the video, and her transformation was unbelievable. She wrote:

"I spent 6 months last year singing in Rahman sir’s studio, and going back home to eat as much junk as I possibly could to put on 15 KILOS for Chamkila! (Coming soon on Netflix) Music and Food. That was my routine. Now that the film is done, the story is the opposite. I miss the studio, and work in the gym trying to look like myself again. And not like Amarjot ji! Its been hard. But anything for you Imtiaz sir! And this role. Many more inches to go."
