This episode we’re talking to Parineeti Chopra who is starring with Akshay Kumar in this week’s Hindi release Kesari. Kesari is about The Battle of Saragarhi in 1897 between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen. Parineeti’s debut was in 2011 with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and her career has seen some ups and down which we discuss in our chat. We talk and about her likeability as an actor, if she pushes back against that image and if that sense of familiarity can turn toxic. We also talk about why she wanted to be part of Kesari and the sudden prevalence of historical movies being made in India lately. If you like our chat do subscribe and review us on iTunes.
