It’s our Pyaari Bindu Parineeti Chopra's Birthday today and we are raising our glasses to her best performances in Hindi Cinema so far. The bubbly actress who’s also the sister of superstar Priyanka Chopra, has always won our hearts with her hatke movie choices.
Parineeti Chopra was last seen in Namaste England opposite Arjun Kapoor.
Today, this gorgeous actor completes 30 years of her existence and undoubtedly is also a fashion icon for many young girls. She has always stood up for women in her career and supported issues like body positivity. With her unique choices in scripts and never a dull moment kind of smile, Parineeti is a breath of fresh air in Bollywood.
Here are some of her best performances which are a must watch for every movie buff:
Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl
Let’s start with her first and most power packed performance in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. Although she was a supporting actress in the film and her screen space was combatively less to that of Anushka Sharma yet she was the highlight of this movie. The movie revolves around a con artist Ricky, played by energetic Ranveer Singh who pretends to be in love with various women while he swindles all their fortune. Parineeti played one of the girls amongst the three Ricky was shown pretending to be in love with. She played a typical young South Delhi girl with some crisp dialogues and bubbly reactions. It was one of those performances where the supporting actor overshadowed the lead actors. Also, ever since this movie Parineeti is characterised as a bubbly Delhi girl.
Release Date: 9 December 2011
Her first movie as a lead actress that is truly unforgettable. A super hit 2012 movie which starred two new comers Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor stunned everyone with their performances. The movie was about two young individuals, Zoya Qureshi and Parma Chauhan who belong to rival political parties fall in love with each other and finally fight alone with the whole district. The storyline of the film was quite unique and the songs were on top of the list throughout that year. Ishqzaade is a must watch for everyone who loves classic love stories but this one comes with a modern touch.
Release Date: 11 May 2012
This woman never stops amazing us with her electric performances and Daawat-E-Ishq tops the list of Pari’s must watch performances.

After facing rejection several times she decides to con Aditya Roy Kapur who plays the role of a well known chefTariq from Lucknow, in the film. Anupam Kher plays the role of Parineeti’s father who captures the emotions of a worried Indian father beautifully. It’s a twisted love story and connects to every Indian middle class household who faces dowry issues.

Hasee Toh Phasee
Only Pari could have pulled a quirky role of a mad scientist in the movie Hasee Toh Phasee. The movie revolves around Nikhil played by Bollywood’s heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra who thinks he’s in love with girlfriend Karishma but ends up realising that he always lover her geeky and quirky sister Meeta. An adorable love story with lots of highs and lows; got tons of appreciation for its soundtrack as well as performances. It wasn’t easy for Parineeti to play such a bold role of Meeta and as always she outshines everyone else. This movie is also a must watch for the desired Sid and Pari’s couple who complemented each other very well throughout the film.
Release Date: 7 February 2014
Meri Pyaari Bindu
After a series of flops, Parineeti Chopra came back in high energy with Meri Pyaari Bindu opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. With some catchy and melodious soundtracks the movie revolved around two childhood best friends who grow up to date each other for a while and in that time period Bindu realises she doesn’t love Abhimanyu as much as he expects. Years later, Abhimanyu decides to pen a story where the protagonist was his friend Bindu. A modern and very practical story where the lead actors doesn’t marry each other in the end but were still content with their respective lives. The storyline was fresh and was indeed fun to watch Pari as a beautifully lost 21st century girl. Parineeti was also praised for her styling in the movie apart from her acting.
Release Date: 12 May 2017
Coming to her recent release, it’s not even been a week since Namaste England has hit the theatres and the movie is already getting so much love and appreciation from everywhere. Another flick with her favourite co-star, Arjun Kapoor; movie is a sequel to Namastey London.

Her performance and her look for this movie are making headlines and what’s a better birthday present from her fans to go and watch Namaste England while it’s still in theatres.
