Meera Chopra close to Priyanka Chopra, ignores Parineeti

Off late cousin rivalry made news in Bollywood but now an altogether different story is heard about Chopra cousin. It was earlier reported that Meera Chopra was snubbed by her two cousins of Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra and Meera unveiled the truth upon the false story being cooked up. Meera said that she is ‘emotionally connected’ to Priyanka but she is not attached to her second cousin Parineeti Chopra.

Meera Chopra who has done few South Indian movies debuted in Bollywood with ‘Gang of Ghosts’.  When Meera’s name hit the headlines, Parineeti commented that Meera isn’t family but a distant relative. Meera said Parineeti`s remarks against her are "unwarranted and stupid".

"We all have been brought up together 20 years ago. We used to stay together. All brothers were close to each other before they spilt and brought up in different cities. Parineeti is young, Priyanka and I are of same age.. We are close," Meera said.

"When she (Parineeti) talks like that... I think it is stupid... Why would you talk like that. It doesn`t disturb me as I don`t have any emotional connect with her. I don`t remember the time spent with her," she said.

But if such statements would have come from Priyanka then it would have definitely bothered Meera as they share a close relationship.

Meera reveals Priyanka was angry as to why she did not tell her anything about her upcoming film `Gangs of Ghost`.

Meera once candidly confessed that she and Priyanka are not close buddies but there is no tiff between them.

"There is no tiff as such. In fact, our families are very close. My parents are very close to Priyanka's parents. It's just that we are not close buddies. So there is no tiff between us," Meera said at the muhurat of her film Gang of Ghosts on Thursday.

Meera is not new to showbiz; she has already made acting debut with Tamil film, Anbe Aaruyire and starred in movies like Vaana and Maaro.

Priyanka Chopra is an established star and Meera has just started her Bollywood journey but she said that she is very confident about her acting and she does not require acting tips from her cousin sister.

"I would not take any tips from Priyanka because I myself have been working in the south for the last three years. I have done 20 movies in the south and I personally feel I am a very good actress. So I would not take any acting tips," said the actress here at the mahurat of the film.

Meera Chopra won’t take acting tips from Priyanka but she idolizes Priyanka for her “hard work and dedication”."Not only should our family, everybody who is not from the industry, who is a newcomer, look up to her because when she came into the industry, she was completely new with no background,” she said.

"Whatever she is today is because of her hard work and dedication," she added.

As she is making her Bollywood debut with Satish Kaushik’s ‘Gang of Ghosts’, Meera is confident about the film’s success.

"When Satishji narrated the script, I was laughing like crazy. So, when you laugh that much at narration, you can imagine how much the audience would laugh. So, I think it'll be a sure shot hit. It is very important to have a hit movie at the beginning," said Meera.

She has also signed the third instalment of Vikram Bhatt’s 1920 franchise and is looking forward to the film.

"I have been trying since last one year. My main aim was to work with good production houses, good directors and have a good role. My role in 1920 was so mind-blowing that when Vikram narrated me the script, I didn't even ask him who the actor was," she said.
