New Delhi: Actress Parineeti Chopra is eagerly waiting to watch her elder sister Priyanka Chopra`s forthcoming movie ‘Gunday’ that will hit theatres Feb 14.

The 25-year-old, whose rom-com ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ will hit theatres Friday, says there is no competition with Priyanka.

While, this time their films have a gap of a week, in 2013, Parineeti`s ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ and Priyanka`s ‘Zanjeer’ released on the same date, Sep 6.

"No, there is no competition with her (Priyanka). Infact I am just waiting to watch `Gunday`. I just wish I get to see the movie at a screening before it releases on Feb 14," Parineeti told reporters during the promotion of her film here.

The actress will be seen essaying a mad scientist in the movie and she says portraying the character was "physically very exhausting" for her.

"The character that I am playing is very quirky. It is different from the ones I have played before. Usually in movies, either an actress plays a normal girl or a mentally challenged, but my character in the movie is between the two. It was physically very exhausting for me to play it," she said.

"The character is a bit off (mentally), she makes faces, she doesn`t blink her eyes, she keeps her tongue out, so getting all that in a shot was very difficult. It was quite challenging for me," Parineeti added.

‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, which is directed by Vanil Mathew, also features Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role.
