Parineeti Chopra spills the beans on the real reason why she did Kesari with Akshay Kumar
Parineeti Chopra essays the role of Akshay Kumar’s wife in the film Kesari. In spite of the lesser screen space, Parineeti decided to do the film as she wanted Kesari to be a part of her filmography. In an interview given to Mumbai Mirror, Chopra revealed that when producer Karan Johar offered her the role, she didn’t ask him about the number of scenes she will have and signed the film as she wanted to work with Karan Johar, director Anurag Singh and Akshay Kumar.
She further added that there is a particular romantic song in the film that she fell in love it and was one of the main reason to do this period drama. It then became a running joke between her and Karan Johar that she did the film only for that romantic song. Talking about why she did the film, Parineeti said, “Fifty years from now, I can proudly say that Kesari is a part of my filmography”. She further added, “Kesari is about the boys. Of course, my character doesn’t figure in the battle. As a part of the love story in the film, I play Akshay’s deceased wife. Havildar Ishar Singh thinks about her and their love at crucial moments of his life”.
