Will Alia, Sharddha ever risk their career like Parineeti?

Updated: Jul 07, 2016 12:29 IST

New Delhi, July 7 (ANI): After 'Kill Dil' in 2014, Parineeti Chopra, at the very prime time of her career, took a break of two years to work on herself and come back with a bang.

As reported by DNA, when the 27-year-old actress' contemporaries Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor were asked whether they would ever take such a risk in the prime of their careers, here's what they had to say.

According to the ' Udta Punjab' actress, Pari apparently went on a hiatus as she had a goal in mind.

"When you are at a particular stage in your career, it might prove detrimental to your growth but then again, if you are preparing yourself for something and have to take a break for a specific reason, then why not? I guess Parineeti too took a break for a reason and not ainvayi. She is doing so many great films now," said Alia.

On other hand, the fast-rising ' Baaghi' actress said that the ' Ishaqzaade' actress took the break as she wanted to.

"So if I am in that situation, I would wait for something substantial and rather spend my time in doing something else that I love doing - maybe travel or do a course. But that's only if such a situation arises. If I'm not, I will be happy to keep doing as many films as I can. As for Pari, she wanted to take it, maybe that's why she took it," said Shraddha.

Looks like this break, where Parineeti worked hard to lose oodles of weight, worked really well for her.

The 'Hasee Toh Phasee' actress will soon be seen opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in YRF's ' Meri Pyaari Bindu.'

She has also signed a film opposite Mahesh Babu down South and will also be romancing Sushant Singh Rajput in Homi Adajania's next. (ANI)
