Reason why Parineeti Chopra is still single: After talking about the language they developed, the focus shifted to Aditya Roy Kapur’s numerous rumoured affairs and the reason why Parineeti is still single. While Aditya dismissed the link ups as hearsay, Parineeti’s revelations about being single were quite revelatory. “I will never date an actor, because for me I want a guy who loves me and is obsessed by me, not the other way around.” Further talking about being hit on by her co-stars a somewhat displeased Pari added, “None of the boys (actors she has worked with) hit on me. Besides I tend to friendzone them way before they even start.”
Depression and dealing with it: In the recent past we have seen quite a few celebrities talk about the time they faced off with depression. Revealing that she too was a victim of depression Parineeti added, “There was a really low time in my career when nothing worked, I was at my lowest career wise, financially and in my personal life. But I have a couple of friends who helped me through this depressing stage. And thanks to them today I can say that I am a much stronger woman than what I was.”
Aditya the honest buffoon: “Aditya has brought shame to his brother (filmmaker Sidharth Roy Kapur)”, revealed Parineeti while claiming that Adity is an “Honest Buffoon”.

Katrina Kaif the principal: Further on in the show during the rapid fire Aditya was quizzed if Bollywood were a college who would be the principal. Sans hesitation the actor replied. “Katrina Kaif”. Talking about Kaif, Pari too spoke about the fact that she is actually scared of Katrina. “I am still scared of Katrina. I love her and idolize her, in fact her body is the body I want but I am still scared of her.” Revealing the reason behind being frightened of Katrina, Pari added, “She is like that teacher who students are scared of, one time I was on the treadmill and Katrina walk up and went, ‘How many minutes have you done? 20, ok 5 more minutes’, and all I could do was say yes and run another five minutes.” Aditya too chipped in saying, “Katrina has this straight face, you go up to her in full excitement asking if we could try something new and she will just turn and say, ‘NO’ with a straight fact. That just takes the air out of you.”
Varun Dhawan the attention seeker: When Karan Johar asked Parineeti about her equation with Varun Dhawan, the actress was immediate with her reply, “I have a love hate relation with Varun. He always wants to be the centre of attention and I am like no, I want to be the centre”.
