Mumbai: Parineeti Chopra, who will be seen in a live-in relationship with her onscreen boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput in `Shuddh Desi Romance`, sees living together as a practical solution for busy couples who do not get time for each other.

Giving an hypothetical example, she said: "I am an actress. If I get too late at work and if I want to meet my boyfriend, when do I meet him? Obviously, in the night. If I come back home and sleep in my place, people will say it`s not a live-in relationship. It`s all about our perception.

"Whoever is not in a relationship, even there pre-martial sex exists. I myself want to know why is it different?"

Although she supports it, Parineeti confesses her parents won`t be able accept it.

"My parents are very orthodox, so I may get scared to do this because they will feel bad. But actually it is fine," she said.

Directed by Maneesh Sharma, `Shuddh Desi Romance` features also introduces Vaani Kapoor and it will come out September 6.
