Priyanka Chopra taught us English songs, says proud sister Parineeti Chopra

New Delhi: Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana will be seen together in YRF venture ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. The actress has lent her vocals for a song titled ‘Maana Ki Hum Yaar Nahi’ in the film marking her singing debut.

The actress who was present at an event in Mumbai talked about how Priyanka Chopra introduced her to English music and how her father is her idol.

PTI quoted her as saying, “We did not play Antakshari as she (Priyanka) went to the US for studies. “…When she came back from the US at the age of 16 she was totally American as she had an accent and she used to teach us English songs.

She was cool and amazing. She was the first person to message me after the song,” Parineeti told reporters here at an event.

“My dad is my idol and inspiration when it comes to singing. He still sits with a harmonium and does ‘riyaz’, he sings everywhere he can.

He cried when he heard me and my brother sing. I have released my song for him. I feel he wanted to see my musical dream come true. I dedicate all my songs to him. I want to be better and better singer just for him,” she added.

Talking further about her acting career, the chirpy actress said, “My intense passion is to be the best actor I can be.

I want to sing as much as I can as that’s my first love, I want to dance my best and want to do best and do the biggest variety of films and that’s my only endeavour.”

‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ has been helmed by Akshay Roy and produced by Maneesh Sharma. The film will hit the screens on May 12, 2017.
