Most Bollywood actresses, without naming too many names, all too frequently shed the strong personas they adopt on screen, when it comes to questions about their personal lives and “values”. They choose instead to bat their eyelashes and demurely answer questions questions posed to them - no matter how sexist - during press conferences and interviews.
But then there’s Parineeti Chopra - who is not “sanskari”, “sharmeeli” or “sushil”. Patriarchal notions and sexist questions are answered in the only way they should be - with one tight verbal thappad!
Here’s what Parineeti said to a highly problematic and chauvinistic statement posed by a reporter at press conference. He said: “Girls when they are young, they like it [sex], and when they are older, then they scream and shout at us.”

Parineeti Chopra took another male reporter DOWN at a Whisper promotional event recently. The man didn’t know what periods were and kept referring to them as a “problem”.
Parineeti’s response? Pure gold.
We NEED more such dabangg actresses! More power to Parineeti!
