Quotes by Parineeti Chopra
- “My first love was in the university. I had completely fallen in love with this guy I was dating. I thought I would marry him. I believed he was the one.”
- “It’s not difficult (being a single girl in the city) but I do wish I had a boyfriend. Honestly, I miss having a love life. It’s damn frustrating not having someone to call up or just hug or be there forsomeone. It’s sad. Otherwise, I like my independence.”
- “I do have orthodox parents. In their opinion, a live-in relationship is wrong because primarily there is pre-marital sex involved. There is fear of pregnancy and fear of society judging you, there is fear of family cutting ties with you. It’s drama and it’s true, they are not wrong. They come from a very different generation. And I would never do it only because I would not want to hurt their sentiments. But in my own mind, I know that if I have a child and if he wants to live with the person he loves because he is alone in the city, great.”
