In a recent podcast with Raj Shamani, Parineeti Chopra has opened up for the first time about the financial challenges she faced at the beginning of her career.

Despite being the sister of the renowned Bollywood-Hollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti revealed that she did not earn much initially, and people even advised her to leave the industry.

Contrary to common belief that having a famous sister would be advantageous, the actress encountered her own set of obstacles in the glamorous world of Bollywood.

During the candid conversation with the host, the ‘Ishaqzaade’ star stated that she didn't come from a wealthy background and hailed from a middle-class family, She was asked to hire a personal trainer and nutritionist to lose weight, and they both cost Rs. 2 lakh per month.

She added that people who were already in the business would judge her a lot. Parineeti was quoted as saying:

“I don’t come from a very rich background. I’m actually a very simple, middle-class girl. I genuinely don’t understand Bollywood. I genuinely don’t know how people in Mumbai operate. I don’t have these high-flying friends. I don’t have a trainer, stylist, everything is already ready for me. And people who were already from here and already knew this world judged me a lot.”

Parineeti added that she wasn't able to pay Rs. 4 lakh as she didn't make that much money. It was her third film, and she had earned only Rs. 5 lakhs for her first film, Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl. She added that she went to her co-actor, who grew up in Bombay, and he stated that she should leave films if she can't afford the expensive ones. She said:

“I was like, ‘I don’t have Rs. 4 lakh a month to pay. I don’t make that money. This is my third film. And I remember going up to a co-actor of mine who has definitely grown up in Bombay, in this world. He’s like, ‘Why aren’t you hiring these people? It's important for your job. I said, ‘Listen, but I really can’t afford it.’ I was paid Rs. 5 lakh for my first film (Ladies vs Ricky Bahl). That won't even cover even one month of everything. He was like, ‘If you can’t afford it, then you shouldn’t be in this profession.’ And I felt like that's so wrong on so many levels.”
