Parineeti Chopra

Sonakshi Sinha has a tacit supporter in Parineeti Chopra, who feels anyone including actors have a right to sing even if they are not trained to do so.

Parineeti, actress and trained singer, fails to understand the brouhaha that erupted in the wake of Kailash Kher and Armaan Malik objecting to actors opening for concerts of international stars.

Says Parineeti, “When I am acting, no one has a problem. When I am dancing, no professional dancer has complained. When I crack a joke, I haven’t heard any professional comedian complain. I wear designer clothes, but fashion designers don’t have a problem and when I do action, the stuntpersons don’t raise objections. Then why this hue-and-cry about actors singing?”

She continues, “Are we saying that if I am an actor, I should only act in a film? Who decides what I can do and can’t do? Where does this debate end? And why are we having it?”

The actress is all set to pursue her musical inclinations seriously. She adds, “Singing is an integral part of the entertainment experience. I feel we all need to know a bit of everything to be complete entertainers. And I want to know more about the singer in me.”
