EXCLUSIVE: Parineeti Chopra initially did not follow politics but now does after marrying Raghav Chadha: “I had no idea of who he was, what he was”

Parineeti Chopra and Raghav Chadha tied the knot in 2023. They reportedly knew each other since college days in London.

Following the release of Amar Singh Chamkila starring Diljit Dosanjh, and Parineeti Chopra and helmed by Imtiaz Ali, the film has become the talk of the town. The reactions from critics and audiences have been positive. It has been a while since Parineeti has received immense praise for her performance. And the actress is overwhelmed. In a sit-down chat with Bollywood Hungama, Parineeti talked about the film, working with Imtiaz Ali and Diljit Dosanjh and even shed light on her marriage to AAP leader Raghav Chadha.

In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Parineeti Chopra said that she never followed politics before but now she does. Raghav is an MLA from Punjab for Aam Aadmi Party. Parineeti said, “Ab toh karna padta hai (I've got to follow politics now). But my complaint is that he doesn't follow entertainment. God only knows (what he watched on screen last). And only he knows. I have to cue him. He knows nothing about films. He knows a little about music, but he won't know if it's my film song. So I have to continuously nudge him, ‘Just pretend like you know' (laughs). So it's sweet. But the best thing is that I actually don't know anything about politics, he doesn't know anything about entertainment, so our conversations are about life. That's perfect for me.”

Parineeti Chopra revealed that initially, she did not consider that Raghav was a big deal in politics. She said, “The first time I met him, I had no idea of who he was, what he was. So the people who follow politics and know him were like, ‘You’ve married Raghav!’ I said, ‘Yeah, what’s the story here?' But now that I know him and his work, who he is and what he does, he's one of the most impressive people. To be the youngest Member of Parliament. At 35, be part of this party and do the work he's doing, I feel like, ‘How do you do it? You’re just a baby! How's this happening?’ So it's nice to be married to someone who's not from the industry. I'm too much of a Sufi soul. I have a life outside of the film industry. So if my husband had also been from this industry, I'd have gone mad. So he's made my life even more normal. I always want normalcy, and he's made my life even more normal. So I'm married to the most wonderful man.”

Parineeti Chopra and Raghav Chadha tied the knot in 2023. They reportedly knew each other since college days in London.

Meanwhile, Parineeti Chopra stars in Amar Singh Chamkila. The film charts the untold true story of Punjab’s original rockstar of the masses, the highest record-selling artist of his time, who emerged from the shadows of poverty and rose to the heights of popularity in the 80s due to the sheer power of his music, angering many on the way, which finally led to his assassination at a young age of 27.

Starring Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra, Amar Singh Chamkila is Netflix’s ode to the vibrant life of the legendary Punjabi musician.
