MUMBAI: Actress Parineeti Chopra holds three degrees in Finance and always dreamt of becoming an investment banker. But global recession in 2009 changed her future, and she landed up as an actor.
“I have done triple honours in Business, Finance and Economics. I have grown up wanting to be a banker, so studying finance was an automatic thing,” she said. “I went to England and studied in Manchester Business School. Then I went to London to work in an investment bank. But recession hit in 2009 and I wasn’t getting jobs and it was not because of my qualification, it was because they couldn’t give jobs to who were not British nationals,” she added. “I came back to India and I wanted to do an internship for six months and I happened
to come to Yash Raj Films office and I was intrigued by it. So, I said let me try,” said Chopra, who made her debut with YRF’s Ladies vs Ricky Bahl in 2011.
