Parineeti Chopra is an Indian actress and singer who works predominantly in the Hindi film industry. She made her Bollywood debut in 2011 in movie Ladies vs Ricky Bahl which starred actors Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.

It seems acting was not on her mind as she had initially aspired to pursue a career in investment banking after obtaining a triple honours degree in business, finance, and economics from Manchester Business School. Upon her return to India, which was during the 2009 economic recession, she joined Yash Raj Films as a public relations consultant.
