Shocking! Why are Sania and Parineeti friends?

Neha Dhupia’s podcast, No Filter Neha, has become a staple for celebrity revelations. The show features different B-Town residents, who open up completely about their personal and professional lives. The latest celebrity on the show was, Parineeti Chopra.

Parineeti talked about her personal and professional life, but the highlight of the show was her friendship with Sania Mirza. We all remember the pictures of the two together, at Sania’s sister’s wedding, that went viral and established the two as besties. But the road wasn’t that straight.


Shocking! Why are Sania and Parineeti friends?


The duo’s friendship started over a misunderstanding, created by Sania herself. In an interview, Sania, when questioned on which actress she would like to see playing her on screen if a biopic was to be made on her life, named Deepika Padukone and Parineeti.

She then quipped that since Deepika is busy doing films all over the world and is in demand, she might not have the time to take on this role. "Parineeti is relatively free so she could do it," she pointed out.

This, obviously, did not sit well with the media, and Sania felt it came out in the wrong way. So, Parineeti revealed in the podcast, what happened next was hilarious. Sania called up Parineeti, to clear out any misconception that might have happened from her statement.

Pari said, “I remember she was playing the US Open and she called me from there in the middle of the night at 2-3'o clock in the morning. She called me and said 'Hi, this is Sania Mirza, she said 'I just wanna say that you know I have given an interview yesterday and it's all over the country and its all on front pages and I felt it was my responsibility to tell you, why it all happened' and I said ya but that's really sweet of you like to say that. She said, 'You look like me and you know we all are blessed in the chest area and I think you will look most like me' and I said 'oh thanks buddy' and we have been friends ever since and she tells me I'm the only actor she is friends with you know."

 So, there you go, this is the reason why Sania and Parineeti became friends, misunderstandings and being blessed in the chest area, these girls have one story to tell.

Parineeti is currently shooting for Golmaal Again, and will also be seen in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, opposite Arjun Kapoor.
