The actress defends her sister Priyanka Chopra, who was in for embarrassment when the Nirav Modi controversy cropped up.
The Nirav Modi scandal has quite shocked the nation, and has dragged Priyanka Chopra’s name into the quagmire, for endorsing the jeweller’s products. In the midst of this, Parineeti Chopra, Priyanka’s cousin, who endorses Swedish watch brand Daniel Wellington, speaks about how she signs up to endorse products.
I want to say this clearly: when a controversy comes up, an actor’s name, even if they’re remotely connected to it, comes up prominently,” she says. “One has to understand that the actor is doing just his or her part by acting and spreading the word in India or worldwide for what they’re representing. We’re not creating or manufacturing the product; we’re only doing our job. However, like every other business deal, we have our own legal teams, business teams and PR teams. This is so I can come on the sets on the day of the shoot and do my job. Of course, I do my research before I sign up for a product, because I want to know if I believe in it.”
