Parineeti Chopra is getting back to her fitness routine after rigorous training for her next movie Chamkila opposite Diljit Dosanjh. She reveals her training included singing her heart out every day in A. R. Rahman’s studio and then going back home to eat as much junk as possible.
Chopra took her marital vows with Raghav Chaddha this year in September. Now she has all the intention to make a comeback after the long break of marriage and other activities.
Pari will be seen next in Imtiaz Ali’s Chamkila opposite Diljit Dosanjh. The movie is a biopic based on the story of the Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila and his wife Amarjot Chamkila.
Speaking about her rigorous training for her role as Amarjot, Pari reveals the daily practices she went through to prepare herself.
“I spent 6 months this year singing in Rahman sir’s studio, and going back home to eat as much junk as I could to put on 15 KILOS for Chamkila! (Coming soon on Netflix) Music and food. That was my routine.”
Pari had finished the shoot for Chamkila before her marriage. She further added in her post.
“Now that the film is done, the story is completely the opposite. I miss the studio and live in the gym trying to get back to looking like myself again. And not Amarjot ji! It’s been hard. But anything for you Imtiaz sir! And this role. Many more inches to go. Let’s do this! #Chamkila #ImatiazAli #Amarjot”
She also pays gratitude in Stories now that the shooting is done and the movie is all set to roll out.
“Imtiaz sir, Diljit, team Chamkila… My life remains forever changed…the most heavenly crew and experience. Peace, happiness, meditation, Punjab.. Will nevr forget this…”
