Zee Media Bureau

Mumbai: Parineeti Chopra is one busy lady these days. After her debut in `Ladies Vs Ricky Behl`; Parineeti has already got critics appreciating her roles in both `Shudhh Desi Romance` and the recent `Hasee to Phasee`.

She has worked with several actors like Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Siddharth Malhotra and Aditya Roy Kapoor. In a recent interaction with the press the actor said that she was close to all of them, Especially Arjun Kapoor and Adita Roy Kapoor, but she does not have a particular favourite.

"But there is a special bonding with Arjun. We spent three months shooting together in Lucknow. Now I`ve spent a lot of time shooting with Aditya in Hyderabad. So these two are my favourites," said the actress.

About being in the industry she said that expectations are a lot higher now when people have started recognising her work. "This is my fourth year in the industry. And I`m doing the work that I am really enjoying," said the actress.

"Initially, I had nothing to lose. But with every passing film there are more expectations to live up to... There is a checklist of directors and actors you want to work with. The dreams expand and so do the anxieties. I want to be known for being versatile. So I`ll search now for the roles that take me to another level."

She also admitted that the other heroines were not threats as the industry is quite big.

"I don`t really feel anyone is a threat. There is enough room for everybody. That`s how I feel right now. Maybe two years down the line, I`ll start peering anxiously over my shoulder. But at the moment I`m happy to be just doing the work that I am," said the actress whose recent performance in `Hasee Toh Phasee` was appreciated by critics and audiences alike.

Even though she lot out on awards this year, she added, "Deepika Padukone deserved them. It would have been odd if I or anyone else got them. But I was nominated. And I was very happy."

Talking about getting out of Shoojit Sircar`s Piku, she said, "The dates clashed with another film. I was so looking forward to it because it gave me a chance to work with two of the finest actors we have - Bachchan saab and Irrfan," she said and added: "Maybe it was too early for me to work with these stalwarts. I`d have probably forgotten my lines and just stared at them."
