While the world is panning Ishaqzaade release in May, Actor Parineeti Chopra seems to have already gained a solid fan base. Better recognized as Priyanka Chopra’s cousin, with her debut in last year’s Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, this 23 year-old has already bagged 9 awards with her first performance.
We all know, blockbuster hits create movie stars. Big films with action and challenging roles turn actors into celebrities and nobodies into household names. And films don’t come much bigger than the upcoming Ishaqzaade produced by Yash Raj Films. Though the director seldom gets credit for creating the movie stars. But Yash Raj Films has also launched the much decorated Anushka Sharma in 2008, in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
So, if you want to make it big in the industry you definitely want to start with a Yash Raj Films Project.
Combining a not so large start cast, a new launching director with a blockbuster profile; the film has the juice to make careers. But the question is-Who stands to gain the most from the project?
Ishaqzaade’s trailer does a great job at showing just enough to get you interested while also being extremely intense. The movie would be a pretty easy sell because at this point Parineeti Chopra’s name is going to be what draws people in.
It does look a lot like many of the big budget films that are out there these days but it has an interesting premise and a fresh star cast. So will this be just another failed film like so many others or will this be one of the rare instances where a big budget and new star cast will be worth seeing?
But our leading lady Parineeti continues to be impressive since Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. She seems to stand out unforgettably among a cast of new characters and looks immersed in a role of gritty realism. The trailers, reveal a bold and upbeat Parineeti, a performance that most of us are eagerly looking forward to.
While there are still not enough good roles for women out there, particularly in mainstream Bollywood, This movie seems to challenge that very notion. If she manages to deliver a head-turning performance, she will outdo her cousin Priyanka Chopra, who took much longer to get noticed. And, if she does end up famous, she likely won’t be complaining.
So what do you think? Can she rise to fame with her bold yet bubbly attitude? Please leave a comment below
