She received a Filmfare Best Female Debut award for her role! Parineeti soon made her debut as lead actress opposite Arjun Kapoor in YRF’s Ishaqzaade. She won the National Film Award – Special Mention for this film!

Parineeti was later seen in films like Shuddh Desi Romance, Hasee Toh Phasee and Daawat-E-Ishq, and currently on YRF’s web series Man’s World.
