"I Am Not doing Any Film With Shahid": Parineeti

It was a hectic day. Did four looooooong interviews. One with Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor and then a joint interview with Parineeti and Arjun.

Parineeti is a live wire. She talks and loves each moment of it. We spoke about a lot of things. She clarified that she is not doing any film with Shahid Kapoor, nor is she doing a film with Pradeep Sarkar. She sang Pareshan.

Arjun spoke about the experience of being groomed by Salman Khan especially for getting him into shape. Arjun said that Salman made him do rigorous workouts on various shooting locations in Greece, Austria etc. He regularly accompanied Salman on cycle rides from his home to various film studios in Bombay. Arjun also disclosed that director Habib Faisal was a cameraman with NDTV and has covered war as well.

The joint interview with Arjun and Parineeti was fun. I asked them about many things. They liked the question on the techincal team of Ishaqzaade, people like the video editor Aarti Bajaj, choreographers Rekha and Chinni Prakash, DOP Hemant etc.

Later I interviewed Kamlesh Gill ji (Daadi ji), Dolly Ahluwalia (mom), Ayushman Khurana and Yami Gautam. All of them were together and it was a lot of fun. Kamlesh ji and Dolly ji indulged in the saas-bahu fun bantering in Punjabi, Ayushman sang 'Paani Da...'. Yaami has surely lost weight (from how she was in the movie) and looks gorgeous. In fact Yami, who has played a Bengali, is a Punjabi in real life. Dolly ji was with Annu Kapoor in NSD.


  1. They shot in Austria? That's great, I'm always complaining that Bollywood shuns Austria for Switzerland, but our mountains are just as pretty :)

    Looking forward to the interview, thanks Faridoon.

  2. No Calena, Arjun accompanied Salman on some shoot in Austria

    I hope u like it once its online


  3. I normally don't like much journos as they ask the same repeated questions and it's kind of bore, but Faridoon you are definitely different and indeed great. I just saw your 4 part interview with Ram Sampath and Prasoon Joshi, wow what a great set of questions. Enjoyed a lot. Kudos and continue the great work.
