In her upcoming movie ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ actress Parineeti Chopra will be seen playing a quirky and an outgoing girl.
But the actress said that while growing up she was nothing like her character Bindu and was more the studious character of Abhi, played by Ayushmann Khurrana.
"I had a very non-romantic, non-love life childhood. I was a very studious person, very different from Bindu. I was very much like Abhi, disciplined and studious child," Parineeti told reporters.
This Akshay Roy directed movie will see Parineeti’s return to big-screen after two long years.
"The break came at a very important time in my life. I was going through some transformations in both personal and professional life. Before that I worked straight for three years. I felt bogged out. It was important for me to introspect about my life, do better work, look better and feel better,” she said.
"I got a house. So, a lot of things were happening and ended up not shooting for eight-nine months. Now, I feel I am doing my best work. I am putting everything that I have. I am sleeping better and have a lot of stamina now. I just feel healthier to do better work," she added.
Actor Ayushmann is also excited about the movie and said the film is different from his ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ and is more nostalgic in its approach.
"In 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', we had touched the 90s, there was this small arch about the music but this is all about nostalgia. We love nostalgia, we live in the past. I think that’s a very Indian thing to do. Wherever we go, we listen to the old songs. The new ones come and go but the old stays," he said.
‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ will release on May 12.
