Indian actress Parineeti Chopra spoke about how the Hindi remake of “The Girl On The Train” was a game changer for her career.

Parineeti says, “Some characters have the ability to entrench themselves deep within your consciousness and Mira is that woman for me. “The Girl On The Train” was an exhilarating and emotionally draining film for me and it taught me so much.”

“There was so much unlearning and learning that I feel a new phase of my career began after it. It doesn’t feel like it’s been a year already and it is amazing that the entire team is still getting so much love and appreciation for the film.”

The actress added, “Mira will always live on in me as, to play her, I had to relive the darkest moments of my own life. I was an emotional wreck by the end of the film but it was so worth it.”

“I feel grateful to the makers and Ribhu for giving me this role which not only made me grow as a performer but also changed me as a person. It was a life changing experience for me, something that made me stronger as an artiste.”

Parineeti will be soon seen in Sandeep Vanga Reddy’s “Animal” opposite Ranbir Kapoor and Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Uunchai’ in which she will share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher and Boman Irani.

Meanwhile, Parineeti shared her experience of spending time with the contestants of talent-based reality show “Hunarbaaz — Desh Ki Shaan” at the rehearsals. She is one of the judges on the show along with Mithun Chakraborty and Karan Johar.

On her experience of spending time with the contestants, she mentioned: “It’s been at the back of my mind for a few days now to go behind the scenes and see what my contestants are doing and watch them practice. I didn’t want to involve myself as just a judge. I really care about all the contestants as well as what is going on in their lives.”

The actress further shares that she is careful about her responsibility as a judge and wants each of the contestants to give their best.

“I genuinely want them to excel, and I must go above and beyond my duty as a judge of this show. Today I had some time off, so I made it my priority to go on the set to see all the rehearsals. I discuss and try to understand the problems and difficulties they face and try to help them in my own small way. I really hope that it motivates them and when I finally meet them on shoot day, they will be able to excel and perform really well,” she adds.

When asked about her excitement after looking at the performances of best 14, she said: “When I see the contestants that we have chosen for our “Behatareen 14,” it really makes me proud. This is the first time I’m an insider on a reality show.”
