It's the 22nd of October yet again, a day which marks the birth of the stunning beauty, Pari aka Parineeti Chopra.
Chopra was born in 1988, to Pawan Chopra and Reena
Chopra in Ambala, Haryana. Her father
is a businessman; military supplier to Indian Army and the vivacious
girl has two brothers - Shivang and Saraj. She is also first-cousin to
Priyanka Chopra and Meera Chopra.
Chopra completed her early education in Jesus and Mary Convent, Ambala.
At the age of
17, she moved to London to obtain triple honours degree in Business,
Finance and Economics.
In 2009, Chopra returned to India due to economic
recession. She visited the Yash Raj Films' sets, where Priyanka Chopra was shooting for Pyaar Impossible (2010) and the sizzling star started
working as an intern for Yash Raj Films Pvt, after being introduced by Priyanka
Chopra. While working in the promotions of Band
Baaja Baaraat (2010), she realized her interest towards acting.
Eventually she made her debut with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl (2011) which also starred Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma.
The movie was well received by critics and audience equally, and also earned her a Filmfare Award for Best
Debut Female. Chopra's run in Bollywood continued with Ishaqzaade (2012) opposite newcomer Arjun Kapoor, earning her a National Award
for Special Mention. The beautiful Chopra has acted in many other movies including Shuddh Desi Romance (2013), Hasee
Toh Phasee (2014) and her most recent, Daawat-e-Ishq

Did You Know?
Chopra always excelled in academics and initially disliked films: she
wanted to pursue a career in the field of Investment Banking;
- While studying at Manchester Business School, she had a part time job in the Manchester United football club;
- Chopra lost 8 kilos in a month before making her Bollywood debut; and
from acting, Chopra stated that singing is her secret talent and she is
trained classical singing. Hence if given opportunity, she would take
it up without hesitation.
