Mumbai, March 31 (IANS) Actress Priyanka Chopra’s younger sister Parineeti Chopra, who bagged 10 best debutante actress awards for her role in “Ladies vs Ricky Bahl”, is looking forward to winning an IIFA award too.
The 13th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards celebration has started with the film fraternity voting for the winners.
“Like you all know, this is my first IIFA. Till now every year I used to hear my sister (actress Priyanka Chopra) saying that I am going here and I am going there. This year I am getting a chance to go somewhere, I am very, very excited,” the 23-year-old said here at the IIFA Voting Weekend.
“No one is telling me where are we going, but I know I am going somewhere. Till now I have got all the awards and I am now waiting for IIFA. I hope I get that as well and then I’ll throw a huge party,” she added.
The actress is so happy to have won so many awards that she counts them everyday.
“Daily I count all of them to ensure that they are still there. Till now I have 10 and I am hoping that I also get IIFA,” said Parineeti.
Parineeti played Delhi girl Dimple in “Ladies vs Ricky Bahl” and feesl happy when people identify her by her character name.
“Today less people know me as Parineeti and more call me Dimple, which I think is a good thing. When you remember the name of the character and don’t remember the real name of the actor, it is a good thing. You don’t say Shah Rukh - Kajol, you say Raj-Simran. So I am very happy,” said the actress.
Parineeti’s next is Yash Raj’s “Ishaqzaade”, in which she is paired with Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun.
